FutureSoft Launches Home-User Version of Anti-Spyware Solution


HOUSTON, TX -- 11/22/2004 -- FutureSoft®, Inc., the Houston-based maker of the DynaComm i:series® Enterprise Content Security software family, today announced the launch of their home-user anti-spyware solution, DynaComm i:scan® Personal Edition.

This product uses the same proprietary technology as FutureSoft’s existing Enterprise Content Security solution, DynaComm i:scan, optimized for use on personal computers. A full content recognition database, using the same file signatures as the enterprise product, enables a “click-and-clean” process for home PC users to eliminate a broad range of damaging security threats.

Rick Mansel, President and CEO of FutureSoft, commented on the new release, “There is clearly a need for individual users to be able to easily and effectively address the growing problem of spyware infections. Home PCs without this kind of security software are rapidly becoming unusable as they pick up more and more spyware through innocent Web browsing or downloading. DynaComm i:scan Personal Edition addresses that need with a high-performance, straightforward solution.”

DynaComm i:scan Personal Edition takes the same content security intelligence and scanning engine available in FutureSoft’s existing enterprise products and presents a simple, easy-to-use interface for home and small business users. This database identifies such potential problems as hacking tools, Trojans, adware and, of course, spyware. These malware infections can cause decreased performance, a crashed system and, ultimately, compromised personal security, and that can lead to credit card fraud and even identity theft.

Mansel continued, “By offering the same anti-spyware abilities of our enterprise solution, we can give home and small business users the same level of protection for their PCs that we already offer to some of the world’s largest companies. It’s designed to be fast, easy and reliable, exactly what home and small business users need from a security product.”

In addition to the click-and-clean simplicity of the basic interface, DynaComm i:scan also offers power users a “Forensic” interface which enables them to scan, identify and eliminate potentially dangerous processes running on their Windows PC. Full registry scanning is also supported to provide in-depth protection against a large and growing range of malware threats.

Each purchase of DynaComm i:scan Personal Edition comes with a one-year subscription to FutureSoft’s threat database, the same database used by the enterprise version.

DynaComm i:scan Personal Edition is available directly from the DynaComm i:series Web site,
