NashWall, developers of Virus-Proofer, has announced that the photo-studio industry have started to switch from anti-virus to The Virus-Proofer. They have been facing sluggish systems & crashes due to viruses that their customers bring on USB drives. Since, anti-viruses depend on signature updates; they can't detect new viruses that come via USB drives & memory cards of their clients.

Photo studio industry, which is burgeoning at a fast pace, thanks to camera's in mobiles loses customers when photos disappear from memory cards. Customers become hostile as lifetime memories are lost from USB Drives. It has been losing cash & credibility, in-spite of buying multiple anti-viruses and paying service engineers to format & reinstall software.

It also blocks running of apps from USB/LAN to prevent memory Infections. The multi-pronged protection along with a built in Firewall stops all kinds of rogue apps. Modification of existing application is also prevented to ensure a virus-proof system.

NashWall comes with live remote access support, at the click of a button, to troubleshoot systems remotely. Apart from being educated about virus-proofing concepts, the photo studios also save time & money spent earlier on service engineers.
