Outpost Security Suite 7 receives Gold Award from Anti-Malware Test Lab
Agnitum technology proves its ability to defend itself against targeted product deactivation attempts
ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA, September 13, 2010 — The Internet security experts at Agnitum, developer of the Outpost range of security software, are delighted to announce that Outpost Security Suite Pro 7.0 has passed Anti-Malware.ru’s self-protection tests with flying colors to achieve the Gold Award for Self-Protection.
In total, 19 personal antivirus and security suite products were tested. Outpost led the field by resisting all 38 attacks under Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7, proving once again the accuracy and efficiency of its anti-deactivation tools. The majority of competing solutions, including industry leaders McAfee, Trend Micro, PC Tools, Panda and Microsoft, fell behind in the tests, delivering only mediocre or fair results in response to the attacks.
"Outpost 7 achieved perfect scores in system level, process termination, process modification, and driver protection tests under Windows XP and 7," commented Vitaliy Yanko, Director of Sales & Marketing at Agnitum. "It doesn’t matter how good your security software is if a single targeted attack can disable your entire system protection. So we’ve focused a great deal of our development time on ensuring that Outpost protection can never be invalidated."
The architecture of Outpost Security Suite is designed to provide all-round security with a strong focus on proactive protection. In addition to the traditional signature-based approach to detecting malware and other threats, the product incorporates proactive behavioral protection that defends against zero-day threats and prevents the leakage of confidential data, delivering protection that reflects real-world conditions.
The latest version of Outpost Security Suite extends its arsenal with new protection against identity theft and corruption of locally-stored assets:
- protection for hidden login details and passwords stored by the browser, instant messaging software, and electronic payment processors
- protection for locally-stored confidential data against corruption by malware
- 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.
