JumpshotJumpshot isn’t like any other antivirus you’ve ever seen. It runs in a bootable Linux environment, but you won’t see any sign of Linux. Instead of security components, Jumpshot has a collection of “minions”—cartoonish characters that handle security tasks. For example, Kobayashi the ninja is wipes out malware, and Officer Pete manages the rest of the minions. The minions report on security activity using cartoon-style talk balloons. Jumpshot doesn’t replace your day-to-day antivirus protection. Rather, you run an occasional scan in order to tune up the system and catch any sneaky malware that your regular antivirus may have missed. BUY NOW
