Comodo Internet Security 7 adds Viruscope, website filtering

Comodo has announced the release of Comodo Firewall 7.0, Comodo Antivirus 7.0 and Comodo Internet Security Premium 7.0.

The major addition to all three tools is the Viruscope, a new component of the Behavior Blocker which monitors running processes, records their actions activities, and may be able to undo some of them later.

The new Website Filtering module can block access to known malware or phishing sites. There are options to customize it further with rules of your own, for example preventing a particular user from accessing Facebook.

A Protected Data Folder gives extra protection to sensitive files, ensuring they’re completely invisible to any sandboxed applications.

A reported 700 percent speed increase for the sandbox is another highlight, while there are some welcome interface tweaks, and Comodo reports that more than 300 bugs have been fixed since the previous edition.

First impressions suggest this is all working as expected, but if you’re interested in exploring the new features, keep in mind that both Viruscope and Web Filtering appear to be disabled by default. Click Advanced Tasks > Open Advanced Settings > Security Settings, then Defense+ > Behavior Blocker or Firewall > Website Filtering to find out more.

Comodo Firewall 7.0, Comodo Antivirus 7.0 and Comodo Internet Security Premium 7.0 are available now.
