Zemana Upgrades Its Anti-keylogger and Android Mobile Security Products to Deepen Defenses Against Ransomware and Other Malicious Attacks10/17/2016 12:00:00 AM
Sarajevo-10/17/2016 12:00:00 AM- Zemana Ltd, an award wining security software provider and leader in protection from online identity theft and online fraud, today announced new upgrades to its anti-ransomware and anti-keylogger protection for Zemana AntiLogger and Zemana Mobile Antivirus. Zemana’s advanced technology is deepening security multilayer defenses for consumer and businesses against increasing ransomware, online fraud and other types of malicious cyber attacks.
As Criminal Groups are increasingly adopting Ransomware as a Service or RaaS, ransomware is reaching a new maturity. From April 2015 to March 2016 the number of ransomware attacks nearly doubled worldwide. More than 55,000 ransomware infections were recorded last March alone. The average ransom went from under $300 last year to over $600 today. By end of 2016 it is estimated ransomware will cost consumers and businesses $1Billion.
As 2016 has become the year of ransomware, Zemana has added new and more advanced protection layers to keep end users and business clients completely safe from ever accelerating threats. These provide users worlwide with the best security to protect consumer personal identity information as well as businesses sensitive data, like intellectual property.
Zemana’s flagship product, Zemana AntiLogger, adds a new malware scanning layer to deepen the defense system. The malware scanner and real-time protection together provide two services. While it cleans your computer in minutes, it also blocks threats–not only viruses, but also malware, trojans, root-kits, ransomware, and boot-kits in real time. It also has the ability to detect and block zero-day (unknown) malware prior they even infect your PC.
In addition to the new antimalware, Zemana Antilogger features powerful ransomware protection, anti-keylogging protection and SSL intrusion prevention. Just recently, Zemana AntiLogger earned the Top Ten Reviews Gold Award with the clear reasoning that it strikes the delicate balance between functionality and usability. The mobile version of AntiLogger, Zemana Mobile Antivirus, now includes SMS Malware protection to further enhance its anti-keylogger feature. Zemana Mobile Antivirus is the only security app featuring anti-keylogging protection for Android devices, which is critical in stopping hackers from accessing devices by pretending to be a legitimate application, or from legitimate applications that are stealing users' data without their permission and then sending that info (GPS location, email address and etc.) through various channels.
The Anti-keylogger preserves private data by catching malicious keyboard applications, password managers and SMS applications. Additionally, it protects your Android device for malware, spyware and viruses. It was recently tested and certified by #1 antivirus testing house AV-Test.
Orhan Akyurek, CEO and co-founder of Zemana, states: “Zemana will constantly innovate ways to improve its security solutions as cybercriminals design malware to try and bypass the traditional security products. We believe that efficient and proactive security is of immense importance now, especially as the Internet of Things matures and the number of smart internet connected devices multiples.”
In addition to protection against increasingly complex threats, Zemana also recognizes the importance of ease of installation, configuration and operation of its products. “ Simplicty is the main fundament Zemana is based on. With us powerful technology comes in a simple form. Consumers don’t need to think anymore that powerful protection always comes with complex interfaces and set-ups while businesses on the other hand can now benefit from faster installation and reduced operating costs.” adds Akyurek.
