Outpost Firewall Pro acclaimed as best firewall in HardíníSoft magazineís group test results
ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA, November 11, 2010 — The Internet security experts at Agnitum, developers of the Outpost range of security software, are delighted to announce that Outpost Firewall Pro 7 was awarded the Editorís Choice in Windows-compatible firewall tests performed by Russian IT magazine HardíníSoft. The test results were published in the October 2010 issue.
Competing with other seven personal security products (Avira, Dr. Web, ESET, Kaspersky PURE, Outpost, Panda, SafeíníSec, Trend Micro), primarily security suites with a firewall component, Outpost won in all categories:
- Comodo leak tests for intrusion detection and prevention
- Bonus features beyond the firewall
In summarizing the test results, the HardíníSoft researcher noted: "Outpost Firewall Pro scored the best among all the participants, with 330 points out of a possible 340. Moreover, this reliable firewall comes with lifetime support and updates. Combined with Outpost Firewall Proís functionality, which includes antispyware and ad blocking as well as the firewall, this confirmed to us that we should grant the Editorís Choice award to Agnitumís software".
In addition to the core component — the two-way firewall (network filter for inbound and outbound data) which stops inappropriate or malicious access to and from both internal (LAN) and external (Internet) sources, Outpost incorporates proactive behavioral protection that defends against zero-day threats and prevents the leak of confidential data, delivering protection that reflects real-world conditions.
Outpost Firewall Pro 7 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
- Overhauled heuristic analyzer
