Free malware protection for SME from Prevx

Prevx, a developer of anti-malware software, today announced that it is offering free Prevx1 Business Starter packs to companies with 25-250 employees - those most vulnerable to PC attack. Companies taking up the offer can go to Prevx's website and receive a year's protection for up to 5 PCs.

Prevx1 is a new IT security product that keeps computers free from viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, rootkits and other malicious attacks. This offer of free malware protection for a year is available to SMEs that sign up by 1st February 2007.

The product helps protect consumers and businesses by working alongside current anti-virus software or as a standalone product, defending users from attacks current security vendors don't catch.

Installation of Prevx takes only a few minutes and does NOT require users to uninstall any other anti-virus or anti-spyware software. It simply runs along-side the other software with no conflicts and uses few additional system resources.

A June 2006 report from Forrester Research states that small businesses will increase spending on security by 66 percent this year over last year. With security a top concern among small businesses across the country, and many security analysts evangelising a multi-layered approach, Prevx's offer of free malware detection and prevention comes at a good time for potential customers.

One such company, Tele-Verse Communications, turned to Prevx after a Trojan had crippled the business telephony service provider's Windows 2000 servers.
