Outpost Security Suite receives one more VB100 award
Certification under Microsoft Windows Server R2 underscores continuing commitment to high levels of protection across all popular Windows platforms
ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA, June 9, 2010 — The Internet security experts at Agnitum are delighted to announce the results of the latest anti-virus tests carried out by Virus Bulletin magazine on Outpost Security Suite Pro 6.7.3.
In total, 33 personal anti-virus and security suite products running under Microsoft Windows Server R2 were tested. By achieving the award for its reactive and proactive capabilities in on a server platform, Outpost Security Suite Pro clearly shows once again its commitment to comprehensive security for client and server Windows operating systems.
The test platform proved challenging for some vendors who focus primarily on 32-bit system support rather than 64-bit, resulting in a decreased number of participants. As Virus Bulletin put it, Microsoft Windows Server R2 "is presented as a simple refresh of the 2008 version, but in fact is a much bigger deal, essentially being Windows 7 Server. The new platform is considerably revised and updated, and is available only for 64-bit hardware".
One of the earliest 64-bit security solutions with consistent compatibility improvements from iteration to iteration, Outpost showed a solid performance and effective detection rates in the results as reported by Virus Bulletin:
"Agnitum’s Outpost has put in a string of solid performances of late; it has a straightforward and unflashy approach providing several protective layers in a well-ordered, solid-feeling interface. Set-up and configuration is clear and problem free, with a reboot required to complete installation. Chugging through the test sets proved equally smooth and reliable. ... With no problems handling the WildList and no false alarms in the clean sets, Agnitum scoops up another VB100 award and gets this month’s test off to a good start."
The architecture of Outpost Security Suite is designed to provide all-round security. In addition to the traditional signature-based approach to detecting viruses, spyware and adware, the product incorporates proactive behavioral protection that prevents zero-day threats and leakage of confidential data, delivering even greater protection that reflects real-world conditions.
The latest version of Outpost Security Suite, version 7.0 (released May 25, 2010), extends its arsenal of protection with new measures against ID theft and corruption of locally stored assets:
- protection for hidden login details and passwords stored by the browser, IM exchanges, and electronic payment processors
- protection for locally-stored confidential data against corruption by viruses and spyware
- file and registry activity monitor for deep analysis of local activity
- redesigned user interface with a Windows 7 look and feel
- overhauled heuristic analyzer
- return of the popular "stop words" list to prevent users inadvertently accessing malicious web content.
