Comguard to offer bootable USB anti-virus stick
Linux-based system cleaner offered through channel partnership with Canadian FixMeStick
Dubai-based IT security VAD Comguard, announced last week that it has recently entered into a distribution agreement with Canada-based security specialists, FixMeStick.
According to Comguard, FixMeStick is a USB-based technology powered by multiple anti-virus engines, which increases the number of detectable viruses, and clean external scanning devices prevent viruses from hiding or from interfering with their removal.
The FixMeStick protection system draws on engines from Kaspersky Lab, Sophos, and GFI for detection and removal of viruses.
FixMeStick is a Linux-based device that runs before Windows boots, enabling it to clean the PC while malware is inactive. Everything that is required to remove the virus and malware from a computer is built into the USB device. There is no need to download or to install any new software, thereby completely avoiding conflict with any of the existing software programs in the system, according to Comguard.
Mohammad Mobasseri, senior vice president at Comguard, said, "FixMeStick is one of the most progressive innovations in the IT security domain and yet so simple to use. It is a bootable USB device running on Linux and is powered by three of the world's leading anti-virus engines: Kaspersky Labs, Sophos, and GFI to automatically remove malicious files.
