Pune headquartered Quick Heal Technologies Limited, one of the leading providers of IT Security Solutions to consumers, today announced the launch of its next-generation suite of cybersecurity solutions – ‘Lighter Smarter Faster’, for laptops and desktops. The launch underlines Quick Heal’s 25-year legacy and constant focus on innovation to design future-ready solutions aimed at providing best-in-class protection against sophisticated cyber-threats.
The launch of Quick Heal’s ‘Lighter Smarter Faster’ suite marks a significant step in the direction of combatting the rapid evolution of the global threat landscape. In its Annual Threat Report 2019, Quick Heal reported more than 973 million malware attacks on desktops and laptops during 2018. More alarming, however, it highlighted how threats such as ransomware, crypto-miners and banking trojans have evolved over time to avoid signature-based detections and deliver advanced attack payloads on systems.
With the launch of ‘its next generation suite, Quick Heal has revamped its superior offerings which includes Quick Heal Total Security, Quick Heal Internet Security and Quick Heal AntiVirus Pro, designed to safeguard the digital lives of consumers from cyberattacks, privacy breaches and other online threats. Backed by industry-leading security technology and advanced features, the brand new range of Quick Heal solutions will go beyond the protection offered by traditional anti-virus solutions.
Kailash Katkar, Managing Director and CEO, said, “Quick Heal was founded with the promise of providing digital citizens with the best and most relevant cybersecurity solutions. In the past 25 years, we have endeavoured to uphold that promise through our commitment to innovation. The launch of the ‘Lighter Smarter Faster’ range is another step towards protecting consumers from new-age threats in the cyber space with state-of-the-art technologies. We remain committed to ensuring the safest digital experience to digital citizens through our range of cutting-edge security offerings.”
Sanjay Katkar, Joint Managing Director and Chief Technology Officer, said, “Since the launch of its first antivirus back in 1993, Quick Heal has set itself apart for providing the most cutting-edge cybersecurity while consuming the lowest system resources. However, over the past 25 years, threats have evolved exponentially and become more complex and sophisticated. We had realised sometime back that simply adding more security layers to combat the growing evolution of the threat landscape isn’t a sustainable solution. If a cybersecurity solution got too heavy to install or slowed down the system performance too much, consumers would simply stop installing or upgrading it. But, in today’s dynamic, threat-prone digital landscape, not installing security solutions is also not a feasible option. The launch of our next-generation suite addresses both these challenges by delivering ‘Lighter Smarter Faster’ cybersecurity while reducing the load demand on the end-user system. We are confident that the launch will help Quick Heal customers gain a competitive advantage against global threat actors.”
Quick Heal’s next generation suite is aimed at providing a seamless and uninterrupted digital experience to consumers by protecting their precious personal data, banking credentials, privacy, memories and more from the wrath of cybercriminals. The new range of solutions are equipped with advanced and comprehensive features like Total Ransomware Protection, as well as Webcam Protection, Portable File Vault, Safe Banking, Parental Control, Web Security and many more, to give its customers an edge over sophisticated cybercriminals and threat actors.
With this ground-breaking development, Quick Heal has distilled its extensive expertise in state-of-the-art cybersecurity and threat defence into new-age security solutions that offer the maximum protection with minimal resource consumption. The latest version of the Quick Heal products, for instance, will be less demanding on device memory and drastically reduce the processor load and disk storage requirement – thus having minimal impact on device performance. The ‘Lighter Smarter Faster’ version also enables quicker security scans and improves the device shutdown time and comes equipped with several smart features.
Amongst the new features introduced by Quick Heal is Total Ransomware Protection, an industry-first feature which provides complete protection for important user data against critical ransomware attacks. Quick Heal has also introduced the Tally Backup feature in Total Ransomware Protection to protect and recover critical Tally files, along with the popular document formats, in case of an attack.
Portable File Vault, on the other hand, restricts unauthorised access to users’ confidential documents through state-of-the-art encryption and prevents deletion of data, while Webcam protection shields webcams against privacy intrusion attempts. Other features, such as Safe Banking and Web Security also ensure that Quick Heal customers remain safe and secure from potential threats and cyber-attacks when online – whether banking, accessing information, or just browsing through the Internet.
