CA Releases Internet Security Suite Plus 2009 : New Feature-Rich Suite Includes Enhanced Malware Protection, Easy-to-Use Parental Control, Robust Customer Support and Reduced User Interruptions Backed by Internet Protection Plan with Coverage up to $10,000

ISLANDIA, N.Y. (PRWEB) November 24, 2008

In addition to the enhanced security features, the suite is now more user-friendly through its inclusion of an Intuitive Help Desk for at-your-fingertips customer support, a simple interface that lets users quickly set preferences or check program status, and a gaming/movie mode to reduce interruptions. With tailored security options for wireless connectivity, CA Internet Security Suite Plus 2009 uses WiFi HotSpot detection technology to alert users when they enter a new network outside of the established home network.

According to the 2008 CA Internet Threat Outlook Report, online attacks will be dominated by smarter malware and bots targeting Web users ranging from gamers and social network users to the elderly and unsuspecting parents.

“Families should feel safe and secure when they are online,” said Brian Grayek, vice president of product management for CA. “However, there are more online threats than ever before. While it’s important for parents to practice general PC safety practices like not placing a PC in a child’s room and monitoring social networking profiles, parental control software provides an added layer of protection and additional peace of mind. Our parental controls are designed to be ‘child-proof’ and prevent even computer-savvy children from uninstalling or disabling the products. In addition to offensive website filtering and blocking, parents can also use the software to set time limits on when children can use the PC and receive daily reports on web activity.”

Grayek continued, “Historically, high-performance users, like gamers, turn off security features because it either slows down their PCs or they get pop-ups that interfere with their experience. This is a huge risk to their PC security. We’ve focused on developing a product that runs quietly in the background for uninterrupted gaming and movie watching, while keeping the PC secure.”

Also new to CA’s Internet Security Suite Plus 2009 are the following features:

Supports the Domain Key Internet Mail (DKIM) and Sender Policy Framework (SPF) industry-standard email security protocols by scanning email and thwarting phishing attempts via Email Inspector. Continuous Upgrades automatically detect new updates and provide alerts when new features are available. Silent Protection automatically analyzes program behavior to determine whether it is safe, and allows or denies access. All CA security products are designed to use system resources efficiently and facilitate fast installation, quick scans and superior usability. They are also protected by the CA Security Advisor Team, a global team of malware experts and engineers that work round-the-clock to detect and prevent online threats.

Customers receive daily protection updates, upgrades to the latest product features and 24 X 7 online technical support at no additional charge with their subscription.

When school vacation days are rescheduled as makeup days on the academic calendar the cheering for students has ended and a problem for parents may be created.
