Immunet provides free community-based AntiVirus software that leverages the collective intelligence of cloud computing to protect the entire userbase from virus threats and malware.
Instead of combating real-time threats with virus definition updates, Immunet monitors an entire network of users and when it is alerted that one user has encountered something bad, it passes on protection to the rest of the network in real time.
Immunet's community protection feature allows users to invite their friends to become part of a shared protection network. Each user adds strength to the Immunet Community by helping the company detect and prevent a greater number of threats for all users, a term they call "Collective Immunity".
