May 15, 2012 - PRLog -- There are 55,000 new malware samples submitted by various organizations to every day. It has been really hard for Antivirus companies to keep up with sheer volume of malware variants. There is a lag between new malware comes out and Antivirus engine detect them. In this window when there are no signatures users are exposed to new viruses and Trojans (also known as Zero Days).
SurfCanister founder Sunil Shilimkar said “Instead of traditional reactive security approach, users need preventive security. SurfCanister has advanced malware protection mechanism which conventional Anti-virus softwares lack. SurfCanister runs viruses and Trojans in isolated environment and blocks malware from accessing to users confidential files and documents.  SurfCanister does not need  signature definitions or updates to protect users' computer, hence users are protected 24X7.”
According to recent study published by Sophos, Web has become the biggest source for malware. More than 85% of malware comes from web. While browsing web, a lot of confidential information such as user’s credit card number, social security number, bank user name and password are stored inside web browser’s cache. Spyware can steal such valuable information stored in user’s browser other confidential locations on users’ computer.  
SurfCanister isolates browser and operating system resources and gives one click option to the user to clean up isolated browsing data or operating system resources to get rid of malware foot prints as well as protects the user’s identity by cleaning the critical information such as credit card number, social security number, bank user name and passwords.
