Rising Internet Security 2009 – Overview


Rising Internet Security 2009 is developed by a Chinese software company by the same name in Beijing. It provides antivirus protection and customizable personal firewall service both, and protects your computer against all types of Internet threats. With Rising Cloud Security project, it provides you zero day security response and protection. Some of you might have doubt on this company because it is based of China but it has passed VB100 test 3 times and their other product Rising Antivirus has been included into Google Pack China. Now, that is something you just cannot ignore, isn’t it?


Rising Internet Security 2009 – Features

  • Antivirus & Antispyware Protection – Protection from Trojans, worms, rootkits and other malware. The detection rate is very good and false positives are pretty less as well.
  • Firewall Protection – Two-way personal firewall protection with separate administrator and user account, easy to use feature.
