Patent-pending PC security software that stops malware from randomly dropping on a computer just by surfing the Internet. Aura’s behind-the-scene protection makes sure the computer stays clean – proactive security without a subscription fee.
Description: Home computer security software using patent-pending file blocker technology to stop unwanted and malicious software, like spyware and viruses, from randomly dropping on a computer hard drive without the user’s consent just by surfing the Internet.
Aura was developed by Atka Software’s Gary Stevens, a founder and former chief technology officer of Ontrack Data International, Inc. Stevens developed Aura to protect his family's home computers after spyware twice forced him to rebuild his own home PC. Aura puts the home computer user back in control of their PC. Aura blocks all executable-type files from accessing a user’s computer; unless that user gives them permission. This proactive behind-the-scene protection means no more drive-by downloads. If it is software a user does want, simply suspend Aura’s protection and continue with the download – it’s that simple. The user then ONLY gets the software they want NOT all of the unwanted and malicious software out on the web. By stopping all executable-type files that try to get on a computer, Aura effectively protects both the operation of the computer and a user’s private information. Aura treats all incoming executable-type files as threats and it will not allow these potential threats to be installed on a computer without the user’s permission.
Unlike computer security programs currently on the market that are all reactive, Aura’s proactive, non-signature based approach means it doesn’t play “catch-up” to the release of new malware and doesn’t require daily updating. Aura works behind-the-scenes, so it doesn’t interrupt Internet browsing to ask frustrating questions. A single Aura purchase can protect an entire household with Atka Software’s Once and For All™ pricing. With five licenses included, Aura can be installed on every one of the family’s home computers – one price for an entire household. And there are no subscription fees because Aura doesn’t need daily updating to keep a computer protected.
