Quick Heal Technologies revamps its consumer offerings; launches next generation suite of superior cybersecurity solutions – ‘Lighter Smarter Faster’

Chennai, May 17, 2019: Quick Heal Technologies Limited, one of the leading providers of IT Security Solutions to consumers, businesses and Government, today announced the launch of its next generation suite of cybersecu rity solutions – ‘Lighter Smarter Faster’, for laptops and desktops. The launch underlines Quick Heal’s 25-year legacy and constant focus on innovation to design future-ready solutions aimed at providing best-in-class prot ection against sophisticated cyber-threats.

The launch of Quick Heal’s ‘Lighter Smarter Faster’ suite marks a significant step in the direction of combatting the rapid evolution of the global threat landscape. In its Annual Threat Report 2019, Quick Heal reported more than 973 million malware attacks on desktops and laptops during 2018. More alarming, however, it highlighted how threats such as ransomware, crypto-miners and banking trojans have evolved over time to avoid signature-based detections and deliver advanced attack payloads on systems.

With the launch of ‘its next generation suite, Quick Heal has revamped its superior offerings which includes Qu ick Heal Total Security, Quick Heal Internet Security and Quick Heal AntiVirus Pro, designed to safeguard the digital lives of consumers from cyberattacks, privacy breaches and other online threats. Backed by industry-le ading security technology and advanced features, the brand new range of Quick Heal solutions will go beyond the protection offered by traditional anti-virus solutions.

Kailash Katkar, Managing Director and CEO, said, Quick Heal was founded with the promise of providing digital citizens with the best and most relevant cybersecurity solutions. In the past 25 years, we have en deavoured to uphold that promise through our commitment to inno va tion. The launch of the ‘Lighter Smarter Faster’ range is another step to wards protecting consumers from new-age threats in the cyber space with state-of-the-art technologies. We remain committed to ensuring the safest digital experience to digital citizens through our range of cutting-edge security offe rings.”

Sanjay Katkar, Joint Managing Director and Chief Technology Officer, said, Since the launch of its first antivirus back in 1993, Quick Heal has set itself apart for providing the most cutting-edge cybersecurity while consuming the lo west system resources. However, over the past 25 years, threats have evolved exponentially and become more complex and sophisticated. We had realised sometime back that simply adding more security layers to combat the growing evol ution of the threat landscape isn’t a sustainable solution. If a cyberse cur ity solution got too heavy to install or slowed down the system performance too much, consumers would simply stop ins talling or upgrading it. But, in today’s dyn am ic, threat-prone digital landscape, not installing security solutions is also no t a feasible option. The launch of our next-generation suite addresses both these challenges by delivering ‘Lighter Sma rter Faster’ cybersecurity while reducing the load demand on the end-user system. We are confident that the launch will help Quick Heal customers gain a competit ive advantage against global threat actors.”

Quick Heal’s next generation suite is aimed at providing a seamless and uninterrupted digital experience to co nsumers by protecting their precious personal data, banking credentials, privacy, memories and more from the wrath of cybercriminals. The new range of solutions are equipped with advanced and comprehensive features like Total Ransomware Protection, as well as Webcam Protection, Portable File Vault, Safe Banking, Parental Control, Web Security and many more, to give its customers an edge over sophisticated cybercriminals and th reat actors.

With this ground-breaking development, Quick Heal has distilled its extensive expertise in state-of-the-art cy bersecurity and threat defence into new-age security solutions that offer the maximum protection with mi ]nim al resource consumption. The latest version of the Quick Heal products, for instance, will be less dem anding on device memory and drastically reduce the processor load and disk storage requirement – thus having minimal im pact on device performance. The ‘Lighter Smarter Faster’ version also enables quicker security scans and imp roves the device shutdown time and comes equipped with several smart features.

Amongst the new features introduced by Quick Heal is Total Ransomware Protection, an industry-first feature which provides complete protection for important user data against critical ransomware attacks. Quick Heal has also introduced the Tally Backup feature in Total Ransomware Protection to protect and recover critical Tally fil es, along with the popular document formats, in case of an attack.

Portable File Vault, on the other hand, restricts unauthorised access to users’ confidential documents through state-of-the-art encryption and prevents deletion of data, while Webcam protection shields webcams against privacy intrusion attempts. Other features, such as Safe Banking and Web Security also ensure that Quick Heal customers remain safe and secure from potential threats and cyber-attacks when online – whether banking, ac cessing information, or just browsing through the Internet.
