A cloud-based software utility that protects your computer from malware and allows you to create personalized blacklists with the desired files and applications
Staying one step ahead malware infections that propagate through a variety of media and seek a way into your computer to snatch data or wreak havoc for the amusement of malevolent people who create them is not an easy task.
There are many software solutions for dealing with viruses, hacking and phishing attempts, as well as other similar threats, but a single computer can only accommodate a limited number of such tools.
Concurrent antivirus solutions, for example, may not get along well and do more harm than good and this is the reason for which lighter, cloud-based applications tend to become more appreciated.
Among the system protectors that are driven by such engines is Crystal Security, a lightweight, standalone program that doesn't even needs installation to ensure the computer it runs on is safe. Through a clean and easy to understand interface you will be able to start the scan and let the utility do the cleaning for you.
The checkup runs smoothly and in a matter of minutes you should have the results concerning the safety status of your PC. Even if it seems a rather plain tool, Crystal Security will surprise you as soon as you peek under the hood a bit.
The 'Settings' area makes it possible for you to configure the checkup mode, as well as the scenarios in which the app will send you notifications. A neat feature of this software is the ability to upload items automatically, as they are detected, and have them subjected to a more thorough analysis and inclusion in the detection database.
You can also activate the shell integration, so when right-clicking a file onto your computer you will be able to have it analyzed with Crystal Security. From the same 'Settings' module you can enable the specific protection that will make sure that the items in selected locations are clean and pose no threat.
All things considered, it's safe to say that Crystal Security can provide a great supplemental layer of protection to any system, especially since it runs seamlessly alongside full-fledged antivirus solutions.
