Dear Readers,

We’re sure you’re looking forward to Spring as much as we are. As another winter comes to an end, we’re happy to share with you the fruits of our long winter evenings spent in candlelight by the fireplace… or rather by the monitor and keyboard! The first of these are the new Outpost 6.7.3 solutions that include our latest update process improvements, closely followed by further developments of version 7.0.

Despite the gloomy weather outside, we cheered on February 1 when Agnitum Ltd. turned 11 years old. That’s a pretty good age for an innovative software firm! In celebration, we decided to turn the tables and give you, our valued customers, a birthday gift in the form of frozen prices.

Read on and learn more in these Agnitum Directions!

As always, we appreciate your feedback, so please use our webmail form or blog to send us your comments and opinions.

Outpost 6.7.3 now available

We encourage all of you to migrate to the new Outpost Security Suite Pro, Outpost Firewall Pro and Outpost Antivirus Pro 6.7.3!

Outpost 6.7.3With this release Agnitum introduces daily updates for the Outpost installation packages. This means the regular incorporation of new malware and rules databases into Outpost. During the day, these databases are embedded into the installation package and downloaded from our website automatically, so you don’t need to waste time and Internet bandwidth to constantly download updates.

To sum up, these improvements ensure:

  • increased frequency of malware database updates: updates are now delivered three times a day (minimum) on weekdays. (Tip! Just tweak Outpost’s settings and opt for updates on an hourly basis instead of the default daily updates.)
  • the anti-malware engine now gets automatically updated through regular malware database updates, so you don’t need to run a separate update process to patch the product itself.

You can find Outpost 6.7.3 solutions on our website. You can also read the complete history of changes Outpost has undergone.

Anti-Malware. Part 2: Auto-Update Engine 5.0 and Heuristic Analyzer

Outpost 7 will retain the auto-update and traffic-saving approach and add even more stability and better performance, thanks to the new version 5 anti-malware engine, which is smoothly integrated with Outpost's other services in version 7.0.

Apart from the new engine, we'd like to tell you about another important technology — the new HAX anti-malware module. Read more in the Agnitum blog!

Agnitum's 11th birthday
