GameGuard Prevents Black Ops in Your System

Jupiter, Fla. - November 11, 2010 -The latest highly anticipated chapter in the blockbuster Call of Duty®  series from Activision exploded onto the scene this week, and Rude Gameware wants gamers to make sure their systems are fully defended before venturing behind enemy lines. Viruses and malware work undercover to wreak havoc in your system, but other anti-virus programs can be notorious memory and system resource hogs, causing framerate drops and other performance hits which sabotage gameplay. GameGuard is designed especially with gamers in mind so they can play with minimal disruption.

"Whether it's carrying out a stealth campaign mission or taking out a zombie onslaught with your buddies online, no one wants a pop-up from their virus software to suddenly call a halt to the action." said Michael Epstein, Chief Rude Officer. "Too many gamers have to disable anti-virus software just to play, but that raises the risk for viruses or malware to sneak inside your system and then it's 'game over.'"

Featuring elements from the industry leading and award-winning BitDefender, GameGuard provides real-time monitoring and automatic updating from virus and malware databases to protect systems from online threats such as rootkits or spyware. Specifically optimized for low resource loads, GameGuard helps maintain high framerates and will never have a pop-up or user request during a game, allowing you to get your game on without annoying interruptions.

GameGuard also provides a safe and secure networking environment for systems, so intruders won't have a chance to gain access to your system.  No reconfiguring of ports or disabling of firewalls is necessary; GameGuard is designed to accept required internet connections for online matches or LAN play. What's more, it creates and automatically secures your internet connection with a two-way firewall to keep your network safe from unauthorized users.

In addition, this protection extends beyond your favorite games to protect your online identity whenever you surf the Web. GameGuard has been designed to block web pages that attempt to steal your credit card data and prevent info leaks from e-mail, instant messengers and web pages. You can easily and securely shop, bank and explore the Net without fear of identity theft with GameGuard.

GameGuard is now available by download and in stores across the country for a suggested retail price of $29.95. Call of Duty®: Black Ops is published by Activision Publishing, Inc. and hit stores worldwide on November 9, 2010.
