Daily Deal: GuardedID Internet Security

from the good-deals-on-cool-stuff dept

Many readers here have probably heard of keylogging and how tracking the keystrokes you use while you’re browsing makes it easier for your data to be compromised. GuardedID outsmarts cyber criminals by encrypting your keystroke data from the point of origin ? your keyboard ? and delivering it safely and securely to your browser so that when you type, keyloggers see only a meaningless sequence of numbers. GuardedID protects you from keylogging attacks and kernel- / desktop-based keyloggers, detects and highlights hidden clickjacking attacks, warning you away from clicking on malicious invisible objects, prevents screen scraping malware from taking screenshots of your info secretly, and more. The 1 computer 1 year license is on sale for only $9 with other license options available as well.

Anonymous Coward says:

This must replace keyboard.sys as the standard keyboard handler, but software based keyloggers simply replace keyboard.sys with their own version anyway so this software would be useless.

Also hardware keyloggers PHYSICALLY sit between the USB cable of the keyboard and the USB socket on the PC, so this would do nothing in that case either.

Basically snake-oil as said above. Most people AREN’T victims of keyloggers, and because they don’t get attacked, this company will say ‘see it works’.

It’s the same principle as ‘this rock banishes tigers back to the jungle’. I haven’t see any tigers at the local mall, therefore it must work….only $500!

Use of GuardedID

I am sorry if a couple of you do not yet realize how well this software works. Please contact tech support of Strikeforce Technologies as they will be more than happy to assist you to help you understand why this software is useful and why your assertions are incorrect. Thank you and I am sorry that you have not learned the great aspects of the software yet.

Before I chose to use this religiously on my work computer, I put it to the test installing popular keyloggers and running GuardedID.

It works exactly as advertised and did not capture ONE. SINGLE. KEYSTROKE. that I entered in. It is far from snake oil and will do the trick, even if infected due to the level it is installed in your system. In fact, I personally recommend it be used in conjunction with antivirus for that exact reason. If infected, GuardedID may very well be the only only reason your information remains secure.

As mentioned above, GuardedID (nor any of their competitors) will NOT protect against hardware-based keyloggers (ie inline usb keyloggers). Those capture your keystrokes at a level lower than than any software can reach since it is capturing the keystrokes straight from the keyboard itself.
