Reason Core Security detects, blocks and removes harmful malware, adware and spyware faster then any other single product on the market. At the core, Real-time Protection prevents malware, adware and unwanted programs from sneaking onto your PC and Bundle Protection blocks unwelcome offers from being installed with software you download. Unlike most anti-virus products, Reason Core Security won't slow down your computer or consume unnecessary resources. It's quiet and unobtrusive, just like security should be.

With cloud-based scans you are always protected against the most recent threats. No longer are you required to do daily updates of massive database signatures that only protect you against known threats since the last update.

Reason Core Security's bundle protection prevents you from checking unwanted offers and downloading potentially unwanted programs during the installation of software (technology bought in when Reason acquired the rights to use Unchecky).

Reason Core Security is a Reason Software Company product, powered by a team of very talented programmers, malware hunters and visionaries lead by Andrew Newman. Andrew was the co-founder and chief software architect for GIANT Company Software, acquired by Microsoft Corporation. GIANT Company was a leader in the anti-spyware and anti-spam industry pioneering many innovations that used machine learning and behavior analysis over distributed networks to rapidly combat malware. This network later became known as SpyNet and still serves as the backbone to Microsoft’s secure computing initiatives.

Does Reason Core Security replace anti-virus software?
The current version of Reason Core Security is designed to target a variety of threats with a very strong focus on adware, spyware and PUPs (potentially unwanted programs). While Reason Core Security is also very effective at finding and removing most malware including trojans, worms, etc, it is not designed to function as a traditional anti-virus engine and does not specifically target file infecting and memory resident viruses as well as various types of rootkits. Reason Core Security is specifically designed to work hand-in-hand with the top antivirus products on the market. Double or even triple your protection with our complete protection solution.

What's the difference between Reason Core Security free and paid?

  • Standard Protection - Totally free, and will always be free! This free version uses the exact same engine as the paid version and will completely detect and remove all types of threats including malware, spyware, adware, and PUPs (potentially unwanted programs).
  • Complete Protection - Comes with a 30 day free trial period when you first install Reason Core Security and the paid subscription is activated through a license key. While both versions are extremely effective at detecting and removing malware and adware, Complete Protection includes real-time protection features to block threats before they do any harm.

Very interesting software! has anyone given this a try yet?
It is compatible with any AV per the vendor but I have not tried it yet and wondered if anyone has given this a try to see how it behaves
I will definitely download the free version and give it a go

i read the news on Softpedia today about this company buying Unchecky, anyone else used their Herdprotect and notice massive number of FP's? so does this mean Unchecky will also add those FP's? well i hope not or Unchecky will go as well.
keeping positive thoughts though ;)
