First to offer powerful combination of features such as generic unpacking of compressed malware, true memory scanning, heuristics, and binary signatures


Millburn, N.J. – June 19, 2006 – GRISOFT, the maker of award-winning AVG Anti-Virus, today announced the release of ewido anti-spyware 4.0, which provides comprehensive protection against a wide array of security threats. This new version is the only anti-spyware software to include a powerful combination of advanced security features such as generic unpacking of compressed malware, true memory scanning, heuristics, and use of binary signatures for the most thorough analysis of programs that place users’ computers at risk.

Additionally, the new release provides extended analysis tools that allow users to manually inspect their computers for suspicious activities by tracking running processes, start-up entries, current Internet connections, and detection of browser plug-ins. It also supports Fast User Switching - a feature of Windows XP – that allows several users to be simultaneously logged onto a workstation without compromising security.

GRISOFT products now go beyond AVG antivirus and firewall to provide comprehensive malware protection against rapidly growing threats like spyware, adware, dialers, keyloggers, trojans and worms.

“Version 4.0 is one of the most advanced anti-spyware programs available today,” said Marketing Manager for WE Andreas Rudyk. “Its unique combination of the most advanced malware detection and user friendly features demonstrates our commitment to continuously develop and improve protection for our customers.”

The ewido anti-spyware 4.0 will be available in major world language mutations via the GRISOFT website: www.grisoft.com. For users of previous ewido versions, the upgrade is free of charge.
