  • 12 December, 2003 13:59

<p>Norman ASA, a world leader in data security, announced today the release of its newest antivirus program, Norman Virus Control version 5.7.</p>
<p>Norman is represented in Australia by Capital Security Solutions <>.</></p>
<p>Mr Mark Karpinski, managing director of Capital Security Solutions said, “Norman Virus Control version 5.7 has been enhanced making it easier to use and thereby more effective in the continuous fight against malware”.</p>
<p>“In Norman Virus Control version 5.7 a new module called Norman Cleaning Module (NCM) is implemented in the on-access and on-demand scanners. NCM is transparent to the user and performs a clean-up after a complex virus infection, where the virus has made registry changes, for example,” Mr Karpinski said.</p>
<p>“Depending on the viral process, the need for additional fixes is reduced because of the automated cleaning process. Thus, the time it will take to recover from virus infections is drastically reduced.”</p>
<p>Another major enhancement is the new version of Norman Internet Protection (NIP), which has a new and more user-friendly interface making it easier to use. This includes an improved connectivity approach to further enhance interoperability with proxy-based applications that uses email functions like personal spam filters, without risking any conflicts between the programs.</p>
<p>Norman Virus Control version 5.7 also includes further enhancements to Norman's patent pending technology Norman SandBox v2, making it even more advanced in its ability to detect new and unknown malware.</p>
<p>Mr Karpinski said the second generation Norman SandBox has vast improvements over the previous version. “The simulation of networks and improved detection of advanced Win32 worms will help detection of unknown viruses and worms before anyone has described or analysed them, protecting customers at an earlier stage than ever before.”</p>
