Quick Heal Anti Virus 2007 provides protection against Internet threats, and
is easy to configure and use. It comes as a 3-in-1 protection—an anti virus, an
anti spyware and a Firewall. It brings with it, the DNAScan Technology, which
works on the techniques of deep code inspection with code analysis. It also
comes with a new version of Quick Heal Personal Firewall, Quick Heal Firewall
Professional Pro. The Firewall interface gives detailed information about
network activity, all that has been blocked by it and all allowed. We tested it
against latest viruses, malware, spyware and also checked its Firewall with
attacks such as nmap, DOS attack and arpspoof. We first installed the viruses on
to the system and then installed the anti virus. Once we ran the virus scan, it
detected all the viruses and deleted them. We attacked the system with DOS
attack and nmap, and it detected both of them. Even though it could not exactly
determine the type of the attack, it blocked the attack nevertheless. But unlike
F-Secure Internet Security 2007 reviewed in March issue of PCQuest (page 134) it
could not detect the arpspoof attack. It maintains a complete log report of all
network activity for good. We configured a mail account in Outlook Express and
sent some spam mail to it. It detected 70-80 percent of it.

Bottom Line: Good performance, but expensive compared to F-Secure
2007’s cost of Rs 1600 for 3 users.

Price: Rs 1,575 per user (1 yr
