Complete Spyware Protection For Corporate Computing Now Offers Corporate Licensing For PestPatrol, Leading Anti-spyware Software

GAYLORD, MI — July 28, 2004 —, an international provider of security and messaging software, announced today the availability of PestPatrol Corporate Edition, a version of the leading anti-spyware software designed for the corporate computing environment. PestPatrol detects and removes spyware, adware, remote access trojans (RATs), keystroke loggers, denial-of-service (DoS) attack agents, probe tools, and other backdoor network threats (including most popular remote access tools). The Corporate Edition provides protection for entire computer networks, controlled via a single administrative console.

“PestPatrol fills an important gap in computer security—one that is not addressed by firewall, antivirus or anti spam defenses, or by the application of Windows security patches,” said Mike Deerfield, Chief Executive Officer of “If one or more employees in an organization accesses the Internet during the course of business, then anti-spyware software is a necessary ‘next step’ in securing that organization’s computer infrastructure from hackers,” Deerfield continued. “PestPatrol Corporate Edition makes that step easy and affordable.”

PestPatrol Corporate Edition features:

  • Active “Real-time Protection”: Once deployed, PestPatrol does more than detect and remove spyware. It actively protects user workstations against spyware, adware and other pests as they access websites and download files.

  • Scheduler: PestPatrol features a scheduler that lets administrators manage scan times and locations from a single location.

  • Configurable Email Alerts: Administrators may opt to receive alerts via email when a pest is detected on a workstation.

  • Security Compatibility: PestPatrol coexists with perimeter security solutions like antivirus, firewall and virtual private networks without conflict.

  • Minimum Resources for Ongoing Management: PestPatrol’s Management Console will push updates to client machines, eliminating the need for each client to download updates over the Internet.

Pricing and Availability

PestPatrol Corporate Edition licenses range from a 10-user license, priced at $357.00 US to a 100-user license for $2550.00 US.
