Pioneer anti-spyware company Lavasoft today announced the release of Ad-Aware Enterprise 2.1, delivering comprehensive malware protection for corporate networks, with integrated anti-spyware and anti-virus in one seamless application. The new version is designed to address the growing complexities of today's security threats by integrating an extended engine and substantially increased detection rates, coupled with a centralized management console.

"With cyber crime at an all time high, businesses need strong solutions to protect the integrity of their networks. The staggering statistics speak for themselves: an estimated 79% of enterprise PCs in the US are infected by some form of spyware at any given time, research from U.S. FBI Cyber Crime Survey shows", says Lavasoft CEO Jason King. "Undetected malware can have devastating effects, leading to loss of confidential data, network corruption, drain system resources, and drastically reduce user performance. Ad-Aware Enterprise 2.1 is designed to greatly reduce the risk of costly attacks, without putting a strain on system resources."

Centralized Management Console

Ad-Aware Enterprise 2.1 includes a customizable management console to steer network-wide malware scanning, detection and removal processes. The ease of installation and usability allows IT administrators to optimize security operations and policy controls of the entire network.

Improved malware detection

Developed in collaboration with a leading anti-virus technology partner, Ad-Aware Enterprise 2.1 features multiple layers of protection with an extended anti-virus engine, boosting detection to encompass 1 million additional cyber threats. With this new version, corporations can proactively block and safely eliminate potentially harmful programs, such as spyware, viruses, trojans, rootkits, backdoor exploits, keyloggers, and other complex forms of hybrid malware.

Enhanced rootkit removal technology

Ad-Aware Enterprise's advanced anti-rootkit technology guards against hidden threats by finding and disabling the malicious processes and applications.

Price and availability

Ad-Aware Enterprise 2.1 is competitively priced for cost-conscious corporations, and includes 12 months of priority technical support and free software updates.
