Coming soon: Total Internet security from Agnitum!
Outpost Firewall Pro has been always recognized as one of the best personal firewalls in the world. One of the reasons for this is that we continuously work to improve the product’s security in order to provide our customers with the best possible protection.
Whenever a new threat arises, Agnitum engineers add a new security layer to Outpost (without turning the program into ‘bloatware’). We added anti-spyware to Outpost 3.0 to detect and remove spyware, Trojans and keyloggers. And with the latest Outpost 4.0 we introduced new anti-leak functionality to proactively block any malware trying to send out any data from the user’s computer to a third party.
Many of you have asked why we don’t provide anti-virus and anti-spam. Well, now we have an answer, and we think you’ll like it. Within the next two months, we’ll be releasing the all-encompassing Outpost Pro Security Suite, featuring:
- Personal firewall (based on Outpost Firewall Pro);
- Anti-malware (a combination of the new antivirus engine and our existing anti-spyware plug-in);
- Proactive security (based on existing anti-leak capabilities);
- Spam filter (based on Agnitum’s latest offering, Spam Terrier);
So what makes Outpost Pro Security Suite better than other security suites already on the market? Here are a few pointers:
- Best-in-class personal firewall;
- Superb ID theft protection;
- Inbuilt protection against disablement by targeted malware;
- Anti-malware that provides robust protection without slowing your system down;
- Meets the needs of both beginners and advanced users.
The overarching goal behind the development of Outpost Pro Security Suite has been to automatically eliminate as many threats as possible using smart programming techniques without the need to resort to signature-based scanners; only in the final stage are signature-based scanners used. This means that Outpost Pro Security Suite runs faster than other security suites without any loss of security, because we’re blocking most threats before they can become problems.
This is what we call Proactive Security - PROactive PROfessional PROtection for your computer.
Beta testing is already well under way, so stay tuned for more news in the next edition of Agnitum Directions.
