Immunet and Collective Immunity™
The name Immunet — a combination of "immune" plus “Internet” — was inspired by our vision to boost the collective immunity of the entire Web community and security ecosystem through an effective malware solution that can benefit every PC.
Collective Immunity, means the shared protective resistance against computer malware infection gained through the strength of community and the shared intelligence gathered within the Immunet Cloud. Collective Immunity also means “shared immunity” of a group of PC users against malware.
The Immunet Cloud
The Immunet Cloud is a secure centralized malware detection network that instantly connects users to the intelligent Immunet antimalware engines. Free malware detections from Immunet are always up-to-date in the cloud, and require no downloads to the user's desktop, delivering lightning-fast malware protection that won't slow down your PC the way some traditional antimalware solutions do.
The Immunet Community
The Immunet Community of members using Immunet Free all contribute to collective intelligence by providing potential malware files for Immunet engines to analyze. As soon as a threat is detected on one PC, Immunet delivers lightning-fast malware detection capabilities and pushes intelligent protection in real-time to ALL Immunet users within milliseconds.
Immunet users do not need to update the malware detection files stored on their own PC harddrive, since all malware detection files and intelligence for blocking malware resides within the Immunet Cloud. The result is an antimalware solution that remains fast and lightweight without slowing down the user while online.
