Firetrust Benign description

Benign neutralizes or strips out the code that makes viruses, worms and scripts and other potentially harmful things run
Imagine being able to receive email which is safe from viruses, worms, scripts, web bugs, privacy threats and other security risks, without affecting your email.

Benign will neutralize or strip out the code that makes worms , viruses and scripts and other potentially harmful things run. That’s why we called it Benign, it makes downloading your email safe. In fact, it’s the perfect companion to our other product – MailWasher Pro.

Did you know viruses and email worms can run automatically just by reading your email? What about links called web bugs that automatically confirm you have a valid address as soon as you preview your email? If this happens, you have a good chance that some marketing companies will start sending you lots of spam because they know your address works!

Here are some key features of “Firetrust Benign”:

· Catches all the email borne viruses
· Neutralizes your email attachments
· Makes email safe so you can download your messages in complete safety
· Protects your privacy
· Prevents worms from spreading
· Stops the spread of viruses


· 30 day trial
