Oracle has introduced new Sun Ray Software 5.1, which provides users secure access to virtual desktop from any location.

The new offering is part of Oracle's desktop-to-data centre virtualisation portfolio, that allows customers to virtualise and manage their full software and hardware stack, from applications to disk.

The company said that the Sun Ray Software 5.1 includes enhancements to media, Adobe Flash, audio, USB support, and multi-display capabilities, that enable customers and partners to access secure and rich virtual desktop experience through its Sun Ray Clients, PCs and laptops.

The Sun Ray Software provides support for operating environments including Microsoft Windows, Oracle Linux and Solaris desktops, and interoperability with other virtualisation platforms and brokers.

El mejor antivirus del mundo

En la primera mitad de año, se han registrado más de un millón de nuevos programas maliciosos, un 50% más que en el mismo periodo del año pasado.

No obstante, a tenor del último informe de AV-Comparatives respecto a la eficacia de los antivirus, los ciudadanos pueden estar tranquilos.

La nueva versión 2011 de G Data AntiVirus ha conseguido el mejor ratio de detección de malware (99,9 por ciento) frente a una muestra con más de 900.000 programas maliciosos donde se incluían troyanos, bots, puertas traseras, gusanos, virus o scripts.

No obstante, muy cerca de estos resultados se encuentran las antivirus de otras empresas del sector como Avira AntiVir Premium (99.8%) TrustPort AV (99.8%) o McAfee AntiVirus Plus (99,4%), con unos ratios de eficacia muy similares.

Por el contrario, Kingsoft AV es el programa de seguridad que cierra la clasificación y el más alejado de estas cifras, con un 80,1% de eficacia.

Entre medias de este ránking, otros antivirus como Kaspersky AV (98,3%) o Microsoft Security Essentials (97,6%).

Para este estudio, la organización austriaca AV-Comparatives ha contado con 20 fabricantes de soluciones de seguridad y el número de programas maliciosos utilizados asscendió a 917.292.
