ThreatFire continually protects your PC against attacks by detecting malicious behavior, such as capturing your keystrokes or stealing your data, instead of only looking for known threats like normal antivirus software. By implementing sophisticated real-time behavioral analysis ThreatFire is able to stop never- before-seen “zero-day” threats solely by detecting their malicious activity.

Whenever ThreatFire detects a malicious activity, it compares the malicious software with the database of known threats. If it finds a match there, then it quarantines the malicious software. If it doesn’t finds a match there, then it calculates threat level based on advanced algorithms, and then present recommendation to user, who can choose to quarantine the software or ignore it.

ThreatFire is able to protect against spyware, adware, keyloggers, viruses, worms, Trojans, rootkits, buffer overflows, and other malware.

ThreatFire is light on system resources, and you will almost never even notice it (unless it detects something). It provides Real-time behavior-based protection, and comes with Automatic Smart updates and Advanced custom rules.
