The firewall itself is very robust and includes an intrusion detection system (or HIPS feature -- called "Defense+" in Comodo). It also provides buffer overflow protection (a "memory firewall"), a training mode to automatically create rules for programs you trust, and a parental control password to automatically block all alerts (so children and inexperienced users do not make poor decisions on popup alerts). System scan consists of various simple function like scan of critical areas of PC or entire scan or deep scan,schedule scan with preset or custom option .Comodo is comparatively new to antivirus business, its detection rate is good,but there are some false positives but of late and on the successive versions this has been reduced considerably.Comodo’s excellence in network security has been prominent point in buying this CIS 2010 suit.Now-a-days security parameters changed ,it is completely different compared to seven or eight years back.
Lots of network vulnerabilities creates hole in the system making the system prone to malware attacks.In addition to this Comodo Secure DNS avoids yours domain spoofing and makes yours browsing experience a safer, smarter and faster Internet.Comodo's Secure DNS's server infrastructure currently spans 15 locations (nodes) and five continents around the world.

Directing your requests through our highly secure servers can also reduces your exposure to the DNS Cache Poisoning attacks that may affect everybody else using your ISP.The "Threatcast" community feature helps you respond to alerts by allowing you to see how others typically respond,but it is resource heavy and it slows down yours connection and the saddest part of all is it is hardly gives the response so if you want you can ignore it.I will be writing about Comodo Secure DNS in the days to come to have a detailed and comprehensive understanding of this functionality.
It is always difficult to review a suit according to security parameters as these are now-a-days dynamic and constantly changing and evolving with times.So, the network security is of paramount importance in security suit as Comodo has upper hand in network security through one of the outstanding firewall if manages well so CIS is gaining the upper hand.If you disable behavior monitoring in the following firewalls, then they still provide excellent inbound protection, minimal/marginal outbound filtering, and additional features such as port stealthing.Most of the suit contains the firewall and now-a-days firewalls are important for yours privacy protection as you can know which software installed on yours system is connecting yours browsers and going to internet without yours knowledge and you can then disable it .No matter how big yours security suit is its performance depends largely with the conditionality that whether yours OS is patched or unpatched or whether you instant messenger,yours email clients or softwares where updated to the latest security features and most important aspect whether you are following the safe computing practices or not!
