Top of the “new features” list is the Viruscope, a monitoring layer which not only detects unwanted actions, but can also undo them. Comodo says this provides “more granular control over otherwise legitimate software”, for example preventing programs from unnecessarily adding components to the Startup folder.
A new Comodo Integrated Security website filtering section supports the creation of per-user rules for allowing, blocking or just logging access to particular websites.
Comodo says the beta also includes 45+ smaller improvements over Comodo Internet Security 6.3, including a new Process Activity dialog, full support for ICMP IPv6, and of course the obligatory interface changes “which allow you to accomplish tasks faster while keeping you better informed than ever before”.
From what we’ve seen so far, the new releases are very early betas, short on functionality and with plenty of problems, so are only worth a look if you’re a Comodo fan (and even then, only briefly).
If you’re still interested, Comodo Internet Security 7, Comodo Antivirus 7 and Comodo Firewall 7 betas are available for download from the Comodo forum (you’ll have to sign up, if you’re not already a member).
But if you’d rather wait, keep in mind that there’s always the option to purchase Comodo Internet Security 6 , and then you’ll get a free update to v7 on its release.
