Emsisoft, the makers of the highly regarded a-Squared anti-malware scanner are offering a free 12 month license for their “Mamutu” behavior blocker exclusively to Gizmo Freeware readers.
Mamutu is a behavior based malware blocker from Emsisoft, the makers of the highly regarded a-Squared anti-malware scanner, which blocks any malware before it can cause any damage to your computer.
Mamutu” is composed from the words “Malware” and “Mutu”. The second word comes from the Maori language and means “stop”. The name may sound funny but it describes exactly what the program does: Terminate all types of Malware.
Normal security software recognizes Malware using Signatures, a type of digital fingerprint. What is problem with this? No fingerprint means no recognition. This means that the Malware must first be known to the manufacturer of the security software before it is possible to create a fingerprint allowing it to be recognized. The fingerprint database on your PC is then updated online on a daily basis. Only then can the Malware be recognized. But Mamutu does not use a fingerprint to recognize dangerous software but rather on the basis of the behavior of the software. This allows Mamutu to recognize new Malware long before the signature databases have been updated. These types of Malware attacks are known as Zero-Day attacks. In addition to this, behavior-based Malware recognition is the only efficient way of recognizing Malware that has been built for a single specific attack, e.g. for industrial espionage.

The offer is in the form of a $27 discount off selected Emsisoft products including all Mamutu subscriptions and a-squared Anti-Malware from 1 year to 3 years, 3- and 5-packs . When this discount is applied to a Mamutu one year subscription that normally costs $27, the net cost to you is zero.
