Crawler Group Free Internet Security Suite Celebrates Two Year Anniversary

August 9, 2007

With nearly a million new user downloads per month and the launch of new Spyware Terminator™ 2.0, Crawler Group's free Internet security suite is poised for future growth and expansion.

Boca Raton, FL - August 9, 2007 - Crawler Group, provider of free Crawler™ software, announced today that its free Internet security suite is reaching a successful two year milestone since being introduced in September 2005. The flagship application of the free security suite, Spyware Terminator real-time antispyware protection software, currently enjoys a user following responsible for over 7.6 million installations. Spyware Terminator is presently gaining nearly 1 million new user downloads a month despite minimal marketing efforts. Much of Spyware Terminator's success is attributed to the product's quality which prompted word-of-mouth advertising by users worldwide, and the need for its free suite of security products, including antispyware application, real-time monitoring and antivirus solution.

The recent release of new Spyware Terminator 2.0 heralded the upcoming two year anniversary of the Internet security suite. Spyware Terminator 2.0 together with sister product Web Security Guard™, an Internet-based threat prevention application, provide consumers and businesses with totally free, full Internet security. Version 2.0 significantly increases users' protection level by integrating an extended database of spyware, adware, keyloggers and other malware with Web Security Guard, whose database of threat-rated websites checks and reports Internet objects associated with these websites.

"We are very pleased with the success of our Internet security suite," stated Robert Österlund, CEO. "Moving forward, it is integral in our development efforts to maintain our high quality standards and that our products remain totally free for consumer and business use." Plans to expand the Internet security suite with more new and powerful applications will be forthcoming in the near future.

With multi-language versions and Microsoft® Internet Explorer® and Mozilla® Firefox® support, the Internet security suite is accessible to millions of users. The free suite includes full real-time antispyware protection, Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) protection, antivirus protection, Internet-based threat prevention, and website threat level ratings and alerts, providing users with safe browsing and reliable protection from Internet-based threats.
