Returnil Virtual System offered by SoftwareCasa

Returnil Virtual Security 2010

SoftwareCasa just reported that they will start offering the Returnil Virtual Security products in the SoftwareCasa download store.

RVS 2010 uses a powerful combination of antivirus, antimalware and a virtual system to protect your computer from all types of viruses and unwanted system changes. While mainstream vendors continue to fight a losing battle against malware, Returnil has taken a completely different approach to security.

“We are proud to add Returnil´s great product line to our already strong Security portfolio.”, says Peter Gillberg, SoftwareCasa Store Manager.

RVS 2010 clones (copies) your operating system and creates a virtual environment in your PC. Instead of loading the native operating system, a clone is loaded that allows you to run your applications and perform your online activities in an entirely isolated environment.
