Outpost AV Service anti-viruses by subscription sped up with the release of version 7.5
St. Petersburg — February 9, 2012. Agnitum, developer of PC security solutions since 1999, is pleased to announce Outpost Performance Edition Version 7.5 is now available to users of the Outpost AV Service. The subscription service, currently in use by more than 120,000 ISP customers in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, provides continuous anti-virus protection paid monthly as part of the user’s telecom service.
Outpost Pro Version 7.5 Performance Edition products have already received five top awards from independent testing laboratories, including Anti-Malware.ru, Matousec.com and Virus Bulletin. In the past year, Outpost Pro alone has received 10 consecutive awards in comparative malware detection tests conducted by Virus Bulletin.
Outpost AV Service is a monthly PC security subscription program available to customers of Internet access and web hosting providers. The user receives antivirus and network security protection for a monthly fee, paid as part of their normal telecommunications bill. Users decide which services to subscribe to from a "personal cabinet" provided by the service provider.
Significant enhancements in Performance Edition Version 7.5
Version 7.5 offers optimized scan performance two to five times faster than in earlier versions of the program. Additionally, the fourth generation SmartScan technology speeds up repeat scans three to five times compared with the previous release.
Key to this new edition is Agnitum’s unique SmartDecision technology, which acts as a "Personal Virus Advisor" to the user. It’s a threat detection system which identifies the potential threat from any new file or process as carrying one of five threat levels with color-coded alerts in yellow, green and red.
Another important option is the configurable protection for removable media (USB drives, CDs and DVDs). Five configuration levels are available to control what can be run from external media, from simple autorun prevention to a complete blocking of access to data storage.
Version 7.5 of Agnitum’s flagship product, Outpost Security Suite, offers comprehensive filtering of Internet traffic entering the PC via broadband access devices (e.g., 3G-and 4G-modems).
