English security software developer Prevx this week unveiled version 2.0 of Prevx1, the latest release of the company's software designed to protect against viruses, Trojans, worms, adware, spyware, and hackers.

If the size of a security solution's database of threats determined which solution was best, Prevx1 might be the winner. The company claims that its network of more than 300,000 computers allows it to recognize the "genetics and behavior" of more than 200,000 new programs every day, including the one percent, or 2,000 programs, that are malicious.

With version 2.0, the company has enhanced the GUI with new configuration and menu options and added a toolbar that provides quick access to information from the desktop. The tool includes a "research tracker" that lets users check a suspected program for maliciousness by simply dragging and dropping it into Prevx's database. "Prevx1 version 2.0 integrates many new features that make it even easier to ensure security for consumer and business computers," says Prevx CEO, Mel Morris.

Prevx supports Windows XP and Windows 2000, and is available in several editions. For individuals, the company offers ABC, Pro, and Expert editions, which start at $22 per year. Prevx also offers a Family edition, which protects four computers for $64 per year, and a Business edition, which starts at about $20 per PC per year with a minimum five-license purchase.
