Anybody heard of Prevx?

Anybody heard of Prevx? PC Mag just gave it the Editor's Choice Award.

Haven't heard of it here on the forum. Maybe it deserves a second look...

When ever I see a chart like that I just laugh and keep on going .. It would take a lot more than a boulder of salt for me!!

Aside from whatever bogus claims they make... they got the PC Mag Editor's choice... PC Mag categorizes them as a behavioral program like threatfire...

Yes I have heard about PrevX.
I also have one unused license on it.
PrevX uses blacklist like AV softwares, and works in 'cloud' - if you want PrevX works you have to have Internet connection if you don't then PrevX doesn't work.

Site seems down to me:

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

Not sure if anyone has tried Prevx yet, but it has become part of my security setup. I purchased the paid version just today. Now running Prevx and Vipre along side each other and they play quite well together. It is available in both 32 and 64-bit and runs on Windows 7 just fine. More info...
