Comodo has released the first beta version of their Internet Security 2013 Suite and it has an anti-virus scanner, firewall, sandbox technology and all of the other apps included in past versions.
While there aren’t any new apps included in the suite, there is quite a bit of new technology that will bring the software into the modern age of computing, making it ready for the new mobile generation.
The user interface has been completely redesigned with a more colorful look and touch features that give a nod to the upcoming Windows 8 and the move to tablets. Improvements have also been made to the sandboxing feature in Comodo. Sandboxing, if you aren’t familiar, locks an app out of the rest of your operating system, preventing it from accessing your PC in the event something goes wrong.
The 2013 version introduces a Virtual Kiosk which basically offers a virtual environment for Internet use and apps. This mode makes sure that “unknown” applications are automatically sandboxed on the system.
The 2013 app utilizes the Kill Switch and Cleaning Essentials to help identify dubious processes attempting to execute on your system.
Here is a good video walkthrough of the new Comodo Internet Security 6.0 Beta version (which is the 2013 version).
Finally, Comodo is claiming that the latest version of the Internet Security suite is the fastest and lightest version of the software ever released.
The beta is currently available in the beta forum which is only accessible by registered users. You probably find it as well on various download portals.
