AV-Comparatives Review DefenseWall HIPS: 100% Detection Score

Past week the acknowledged testing organization AV-Comparatives published a comprehensive DefenseWall HIPS test/review.
The program is the most important product of SoftSphere Technologies, a company primarily active in the field of information security and its mission is to develop reliable means of protection against existing and future threats, such as viruses, spyware or rootkits.

AV-Comparatives tested the software on 100 current Malware Samples (Adware, Spyware, Viruses, Trojan Horses, Backdoors, etc.) that were not detected by other major Anti-Virus products at time of testing. All the samples were detected or executed as being untrusted or without compromising the system. Excellent test result: a protection rate of 100%!

My congratulations to SoftSphere Technologies, this result underline again that DefenseWall HIPS is a top-notch Host Intrusion Prevention System.

Please keep in mind that the software should be regarded as being a supplement to an Anti-Virus product and not as a replacement.

The full review is available in English and German language.
