Shield Your PC Rig from Online Threats with Rude Gameware's GameGuard

Jupiter, Fla. -- June 8, 2010 -- Rude Gameware announced today the release of GameGuard, a new anti-virus software engineered with the needs of PC gamers in mind. 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. As a result, PC enthusiasts can finally surf and play in peace without worrying about viruses, weakened firewalls or annoying program pop-ups.

Other anti-virus programs are notorious for being memory and system resource hogs, which can cause frame rate drops and other performance hits during gameplay. Even worse, some programs continually request user interaction through pop-ups, verification windows and other interruptions. Who wants to deal with that in the middle of a firefight? GameGuard avoids these issues by being specifically optimized for low resource loads on a system, which helps maintain high frame rates. Additionally, it 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.

"Our team got so sick of having to disable our anti-virus while gaming, leaving our PCs vulnerable for a crippling attack, that we set out to engineer a solution. ," said Michael Epstein, Chief Rude Officer. " GameGuard gives gamers the protection they need without sacrificing the performance they demand."GameGuard is now available by download and in stores across the country for a suggested retail price of $29.95.
