Outpost 7.0 receives another Gold Award in Anti-Malware Test Lab’s self-protection tests
Agnitum’s next-generation product Outpost Security Suite Pro 7 proves its ability to resist targeted deactivation attempts under Windows 7 64-bit
ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA, January 26, 2011: The Internet security experts at Agnitum, developers of the Outpost range of security software, are delighted to announce that Outpost Security Suite Pro 7.0 has passed Anti-Malware.ru’s tests under Windows 7 (x64) with flying colors to achieve the Gold Award for Self-Protection.
In total, 20 personal antivirus and security suite products were tested. Outpost posted one of the best results by resisting 92% of attacks (30.5 points out of 33), proving once again the accuracy and efficiency of its anti-deactivation tools. Many competing solutions, including such industry leaders as PC Tools Internet Security 2011 and Eset Smart Security 4.2 (both at 59%) and Microsoft Security Essentials 1.0 (test failed at 30%), fell far behind, delivering only mediocre results in response to the attacks.
Outpost 7 also achieved almost-perfect scores in the system level, process termination, process modification, and driver protection tests under Windows 7 by providing full support for 64-bit systems, taking into account the specific architecture and security requirements of these systems.
"Self-protection improvements have always been high on our priority lists in Outpost development. In the next major version upgrade — Outpost 7.5 — look out for even greater improvements in protection breach techniques", comments Maxim Korobtsev, Head of R&D at Agnitum.
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.
Since November 2010 Outpost Security Suite Pro has been available in a FREE version for both 32- and 64-bit systems in addition to the even more extensive commercial version. Learn more about the all-round proactive protection in Outpost Security Suite FREE at http://free.agnitum.com.
