Internet Security 2009 Beta was released on April 28th.
IS 2009 contains many new features including DeepGuard 2.0 and new engine technologies.
There's been a great deal of work put into our back-end systems that will directly impact the effectiveness of IS 2009. We're looking forward to its potential here in the lab.
The readership of this blog has been a very useful resource to the Internet Security project team in the past. They welcome you to try out 2009 and to provide feedback. Those that provide excellent feedback will be entered into a drawing. The team is still determining the prizes (it's budgeting time) but will probably come up with a couple of cool iPods and some free twelve-month licenses.
You can read the current release notes and sign up for the download from our Technology Preview pages.
And while on the topic of new technologies… if you don't have a machine to test our new beta, you can still try some of the technologies that will be included in Internet Security 2009.
Our Online Scanner 3.3.0 was released with a new mix of technologies.
It's *free* to use (requires Internet Explorer). Custom Scan options are possible. You can scan your entire system or a single folder.
Try Online Scanner from our support pages. If you're curious about some of changes made, check out the details in the scan report.
