PivX at the Gartner Itxpo 2004

PivX Announces 'Qwik-Fix Pro' the first Proactive Threat Mitigation solution, at the Gartner Symposium/Itxpo 2004

PivX, a leader in Software Security Research, has released a revolutionary desktop security application called "Qwik-Fix Pro" which works together with Anti Virus and Firewall technologies to provide more complete security protection for PC users against worms and viruses.

"The recent spate of insidious attacks on computer systems worldwide calls for a 'Qwik-Fix" that proactively mitigates vulnerabilities that worm writers have been able to exploit" says Rob Shively, Chairman and CEO of PivX. "Qwik-Fix Pro is not a substitute for Anti Virus and Personal Firewall technologies, but rather an important additional layer to the suite of technologies necessary to achieve real security for your PC."

"Qwik-Fix Pro is an essential desktop security solution that allows end-users to benefit from real time fixes and threat mitigations we discover" says Thor Larholm, PivX's Senior Security Researcher and chief architect of Qwik-Fix Pro. "When we uncover new threats in Windows that allow worm and virus writers to create exploits, we create a targeted counteraction and automatically distribute this fix to our Qwik-Fix Pro users so that they are safe from threats in advance."

Qwik-Fix Pro blocks attack vectors that virus and worm writers use to exploit and compromise a user?s PC.

Qwik-Fix Pro protects users from a wide range of vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer, including all known command execution vulnerabilities.

Qwik-Fix Pro is dynamic and updatable. Every time PivX finds new vulnerabilities, Qwik-Fix Pro is auto-updated to protect users until Microsoft develops a patch and the user installs the patch.

Qwik-Fix Pro proactively protected users against Bagle, Blaster, Sobig and most of the recent worms and viruses such as Netsky Doomjuice, My Doom and Bizex.
