"We all know the Windows popup asking to decide whether it is safe to run a program or not. Those using personal firewalls have to answer many more questions to achieve an adequate protection. Before making a decision we usually hesitate for a second. This is because our decision, based on easily faked attributes such as the fileâ€™s or the manufacturerâ€™s name, is almost always a gamble. The problem of executable files authentication has been the central unsolved issue for all desktop firewalls, Anti-Viruses and all other application security software. pcInternet Patrol is the first to use a web-based white-list of authenticated executables offering a unique solution to this problem. Its immense database allows the end-user to verify the authenticity and safety of any executable file automatically and in real-time. pcInternet Patrol is able to assure the end-user of a fileâ€™s safety, whether it was downloaded, received as an email attachment or introduced into the system through other media. Unlike Anti-Virus users, pcInternet Patrol users do not need to download any scheduled updates and carry the entire database of signatures in their computers. Instead, pcInternet Patrol provides instantaneous, real time updates by transferring to the userâ€™s computer the signatures of only those files that are encountered by the user the moment they are needed. pcInternet Patrolâ€™s simplicity to operate is only matched by its power: it is able to detect a completely unknown malicious program even if it exists in a single copy on earth. This makes it particularly useful for individual and business users, potential targets of customized attacks. pcInternet Patrol affords equal protection to novice or expert users alike."
