What’s new in Outpost 7.5 — Release Candidate?
SmartDecision technology improvements eliminate false positives
Thanks to the beta-testers who sent suspicious files to Agnitum’s R&D department, the SmartDecision technology has been significantly improved and the criteria to define whether a file is suspicious or not have been revised to minimize the possibility of false positives.
Anti-Malware module improvements ensure high-speed performance
The reworked Anti-Malware module, which combines Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware, has contributed to higher performance rates and more highly-optimized PC resource consumption. The updated SmartScan technology has increased the speed of subsequent scans by 3-5 times over the earlier version of the technology in Outpost 7.1.
We will shortly upgrade the antivirus engine from version 5.2 to version 5.3 to deliver even higher detection rates, particularly with regard to unknown malware. This engine upgrade will take place automatically; users of the release candidate software will not need to make any manual changes.
We encourage users to check out the Release Candidate for Outpost Pro 7.5 today and provide your feedback to our Support team or to the Agnitum group on Facebook.
More on Outpost 7.5 Performance Edition
Compared with Outpost 7.1, Outpost 7.5 demonstrates greater malware detection accuracy thanks to the renewed antivirus mechanism and improved Proactive Protection to preemptively block unknown Internet threats.
The SmartDecision technology facilitates security decision-making. Whenever SmartDecision technology detects an unknown or unverified application, it immediately alerts user and gives a recommendation on further actions. This way security decision-making is much faster and easier with Outpost 7.5 and risk of the wrong choice is minimized.
Additionally, Outpost 7.5 now filters content for mobile broadband devices (3G and other).
