Internet Explorer 8 is the safest version yet

Hi Partners,

Cyber criminals continue to rely on deceptive social engineering attacks to prey on unsuspecting web users. And the threat is constantly evolving. To counter it, Internet Explorer 8 includes new security features that offer an unrivalled level of protection in independent tests.


For example, Internet Explorer 8 uses a Phishing Filter to warn you of suspect websites, and SmartScreen to block them. In independent tests IE8 blocked 83% of Phishing – more than any other browser tested1.


Internet Explorer 8 also offers enhanced protection against Malware. In a live test, IE8 caught socially engineered malware 81% of the time compared to Firefox 3’s 27%, Safari’s 21% and Chrome’s 7%1.

So if you want to be safer online, your choice is simple. For better protection when you browse, chose Internet Explorer 8.
