AppGuard for Windows can protect against new, zero day attacks

 

AppGuard is a revolutionary new software product that stops computer viruses and malware – even zero-day malware – from harming you and your PC. It stops zero-day malware - old and new, known and unknown - from executing an attack. It accomplishes this comprehensive protection through the use of a unique, patented isolation and containment method to protect against persistent threats and targeted attacks that traditional antivirus, whitelisting, and sandboxing approaches can’t and don’t stop.

Numerous studies have confirmed there are literally dozens of new viruses and malicious software (zero-day malware) attacking users every minute. Current antivirus tools are unable to detect and stop these attacks for days during which time users are exposed to data theft, ID theft, and disruption. Until updates are downloaded to the antivirus software, users continue to be exposed to harmful exploits. AppGuard doesn’t need to identify the threat, scan for viruses, update its software, or disrupt your activities to provide its protection. It easily and transparently extends its protection to your complete computing and network environment including documents, attachments, downloads from the web, social network applications, and removable media like thumb drives, without disrupting their use.

AppGuard is designed to protect your computing, browsing, and cloud networking needs without burdensome overhead or time consuming downloads. It is easy to install, easy to use, and affordable. Get AppGuard if you want the peace of mind that you have the best zero-day malware protection in the marketplace.  Supported on Microsoft Windows XP, VISTA, 7, 8, 8.1.

AppGuard contains several types of protection:

  • Drive-by Download Protection stops suspicious programs from launching.
  • Application Containment/Guarded Execution ensures protected applications are prevented from
  • performing high-risk activities that might be exploited by malware.
  • MemoryGuard prevents protected programs from writing to or reading from other processes’ memory.
  • InstallGuard prevents installation of programs from untrusted vendors.
  • Privacy Mode prevents browsers from reading private folders

I installed EMET from Microsoft and I noticed that I get a IE has stopped working all the time I close a tab or when I close IE alltogether. Anyone experienced that?

Thanks

Because AppGuard is different. From Wilders Security forums:

''Appguard is policy based with some "anti-execute-like" features but not really an anti-execute program either. EMET from what I understand was designed to be an anti-exploit type program to compliment other security apps that lacked such protection. The way they protect memory is quite different. EMET makes many of the ways attackers use to exploit your machine unusable, really only putting Windows native obstacles in the way. AG isolates processes and prevents them from "hijacking" or tampering with one another. In my opinion AG's way is more forward looking and simple; unless of course AG itself has an exploit then you would want emet to protect AG too.''

is this the same concept as SandboxIE? i tried the latter a while ago just out of curiosity but had no interest in paying for it.

Sounds like sandboxing but it claims different technology.
