The suite will compete against many paid products, such as suites provided by Norton, McAfee and others, who have moved beyond anti-malware protection and begun adding utility features such as automatic backup.

Fortinet said that it has improved its anti-spyware and anti-virus engines to speed up performance three times versus previous versions. Unlike some suites, the Fortinet technology uses separate engines for each. Anti-spyware sweeps can scan a full system in just seconds, according to the company. The free suite supplies definition updates once per day, while the paid version downloads them from Fortinet’s servers on an hourly basis.
