Reve antivirus products closely integrate phone and PC
July 9 2018: It is difficult to differentiate yourself in the crowded market for net security products, but Reve, a relatively new entrant headquartered in Singapore, but with development flowing from labs in Delhi and Pune, would seem to have carved out a space for itself. It has done this by offering each product in its portfolio, for both PC and mobile phone -- then tightly integrating the solution so that one's mobile phone serves to alert when there is hanky panky going on at the PC!
There are 3 products ( all sold on a CD): the basic Reve AntiVirus covers malware and rootkit threats but has a useful extension to check out devices on one's USB drive. ( Rs 800 for One PC + 1 Mobile for 1 year. Reve Internet Security, has additional features: anti-spam and anti-phishing as well as web security and some cool tools for parental control ( Rs 1400) Reve Total Security is the flagship product which in addition to the tools in the other two, also offers some useful solutions to tune up the PC, shred unwanted files and eliminate duplication of files.( Rs 1799).
Based on our tryouts, we found the Reve products to be light weight ( 230-250 MB), functionally friendly and clever in the way one's phone is used to send messages when the PC is attacked or inappropriately used by a child. Free trials are offered for all 3 products.
