Cloud Based Infrastructure:
2011 family of products(Yes COMODO Firewall too!) are now armed with cloud based file rating technologies. The cloud computation, enabled by default, is used for a variety of purposes.(Do not be surprized if COMODO Firewall gives you a malware alert!!!).

With cloud computation;

  • Cloud based Whitelisting: Safe files and trusted vendors are now easily identified. The concept of “Trusted Publisher” is now cloud based.
  • Cloud based Anti virus: Malicious files are detected even if the users do not have an up-to-date antivirus product or an antivirus product at all.
  • Cloud Based Behaviour Analysis: Zero-day malware can be detected INSTANTLY by COMODO’s cloud based behavior analysis system CIMA(Comodo Instant Malware analysis).

Extended Spyware Scanning
COMODO’s vision and focus has been about “keeping a clean computer clean” from early days. Now that We have achieved that COMODO is focusing on “cleaning an already infected computer”. This is why we extended the spyware scanning in COMODO Internet Security 2011 and COMODO Antivirus 2011 and now include a new spyware scanner which is capable of scanning the windows registry and computer disks for the signs of malware infection.
This new scanner is implemented to improve the detection and successful cleaning rate of already infected systems.

Game Mode
2011 family of products are now gamer friendly security applications. When they are put into the game mode, the operations that can interfere with users’ gaming experience such as alerts or resource intensive virus database updates, scheduled scans are suppressed.

Stronger and Smarter Application Control
2011 family of products have a highly smart application control mechanism which extends the functionality of the previous versions.
The new application control provides the users the ability to lockdown their computers such that only the known good applications can be executed.
The new sandbox introduces a new default application isolation level, partially limited, which improves the compatibility with many windows products.

Nowadays, a lot of malware come in other forms than standalone executables. For example, some come in the form of visual basic scripts while some come in the form of java binaries. When they come in such forms, they are executed by “interpreter” applications such as wscript.exe or java.exe etc.
2011 family of products can identify such applications heuristically and detect the real file behind the requests of “interpreters”.

Awesome release guy’s :-TU Thanks very much for this one :comodorocks:

Let the games begin!!!


Congrats :-TU :-TU :-TU :-TU :-TU
Way to go.

Now just a good Anti spam and a bit higher detection and Comodo is unbeatable

New version already run (V)

I promise to deliver world’s best detection, guaranteed!!! :wink:


Just finished the download !

Very good job!!

Downloading now ;D

This does everything so fast, the initial scan of just under 300,000 files took just 27 minutes for me on Windows7 x64.

Applications seem to start quicker than with the RC and alerts are very few. Only 2 ATI files sandboxed but lookup found them safe. I guess they started too early to be trusted immediately.

Looking really good thankyou :-TU

And we are downloading. :slight_smile:

Downloaded the installer in one and a half minutes !

Now I will uninstall the 4.1 and install this one ! Wish me luck !

Will report back after the instalation !

Installed and using

Thanks comodo CIS 5 team

Congratulations for this new release COMODO. :wink:

I use a Comodo 4 complete version! From where i download a new 5 version?

Well done!!!


Guaranteed by what?

How about this: You make it “the world’s best detection”, and we’ll test it with three independent testing organisation of my choice (all conforming to AMTSO). If Comodo does not deliver “world’s best detection”, to honour your guarantee, you’ll give me all your moeny, house, cars, clothes, and other personal items. That would be a guarantee, no? ;D

If you’re happy to honour your “guarantee” put your money where your mouth is, and let’s draw up the legal document! >:-D

congrats on this new version.
I’ve just installed it and received nearly 1 or 2 popup, that’s really great :slight_smile:

Where should we post our questions? In the beta forum or in this forum?
I have a strange behavior from a safe application…

Congratulations, now let’s rock :comodorocks:
