100,000 People Are Now Using Immunet Protect AntiVirus

Is 100,000 a big number by the standards of the Internet? No, it’s not. However, the people at Immunet might disagree. To them, this is very likely a much anticipated milestone.

My fellow author Tehseen first wrote about the Immunet Protect service in August of last year. At the time, only a few thousand people were using it. Immunet is a cloud (internet based) service that is constantly connected and stays up to date against the most recent bugs. Here’s what Immunet says about it:

Imagine for a moment that you could leverage the computers of your friends, family and a worldwide global community to harness their collective security. Every time someone in this collective community encounters a threat everyone else in the community gains protection from that same threat in real time.

I recently wrote about trying Immunet as an addition to your regular antivirus. Since then, I’ve started using it as my only active antivirus. I do occasionally run ESET’s online scanner.

This afternoon when I booted up my netbook, this is what I saw above my task tray.

Congratulations to the Immunet Protect team on crossing 100,000 users. You can tweet them at @immunet to offer your toasts to them as well.

Note: I only recommend this free AntiVirus service as an addition to your existing protection. That said, I don’t always take my own advice.

  1. That number could have been artificially bot-generated hits count. Nothing is so certain these days as companies doing everything they can to promote their newly release products. I am still stick with my Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 which is good i think.
