    Outpost Pro 2009 New Year edition released
    Outpost Network Security 3.0 – final beta testing

Dear Readers,

We hope you had great holidays! Here at Agnitum, we are starting the new year with new product releases. The final Outpost 2009 New Year editions have been announced, and beta-testing of the new corporate solution will end in a couple of weeks. Keep reading for more details!

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

Outpost Pro 2009 New Year edition released

We are pleased to announce the new Outpost 2009 versions, which add further security improvements and useful components so you will find it even easier to configure the products to work in accordance with your requirements.

What’s new in the latest versions?

Faster performance and smarter scanning with new SmartScan 3

The SmartScan engine has been optimized to deliver the ultimate in anti-malware scan performance. This latest version improves on the speed by skipping safe system files that contain the digital signatures of trusted vendors.

Actionable alerts

When an unknown application triggers a firewall alert, you can act directly upon it. In addition to creating a custom rule, you can add target domains to a blocked addresses list or instantly terminate the requesting application.

Intelligent and more rigorous analysis of auto-started objects

Outpost’s heuristic analyzer, part of the antimalware module, screens Windows start-up entries and analyzes contents, such as registry startups, services and drivers, for suspicious activity or components.

Security module selection

Advanced users can now configure the list of modules to be installed components during the set-up process. The wizard greets you with a request to either stick with the “by default” configuration or select your preferred modules.

We encourage you to download and try the final products and share your opinions. Outpost 2009 Outpost New Year solutions can be downloaded from:

Registration is required, but the process is very quick. We are planning to close the testing and deliver the final version in about two weeks.

 

Here’s a reminder of the major improvements:

  • The client is based on the most recent version of Outpost Security Suite, ensuring backward compatibility.
  • Access to USB drives is controlled
  • Centralized deployment
  • Centralized event monitor
  • Centralized control of virus scanner
  • Support for all 64-bit platforms
  • New paradigm of rules.

The proof is in the pudding, so we encourage you to download and try the beta product, help us finalize the different versions, and provide your feedback on the product to us.
