Dear Readers,

It’s time for another update on Agnitum’s achievements and development activities. Our brand-new anti-virus software has received its first major award – appropriately, a Russian award. We also have the latest information on the Outpost 2009 product line – now in beta – and we look forward to getting your feedback on those. Security Teacher brings you advice on how to control what information about yourself you reveal online. And finally, we have a cool new product offering for you from our friends at Promt translation software!

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

Outpost Antivirus Pro collects home market award!

It’s normal that new products gain their first recognition in their home markets, so it's no surprise that OAV’s first award comes in Russia!

In a recent test conducted by leading Russian software observer Soft.News.ru, Outpost Antivirus Pro beat out established ‘name’ products like Panda Antivirus 2008, NOD32 Standard 3 and Dr.Web 4.44. The test was based on around 7000 malware samples, and OAV passed with flying colors and a 96,8% detection rate!

Outpost Antivirus Pro: First Award in Russia!

Here’s a quote from the test results: “Agnitum’s antivirus emerged as a leader in our test of four antiviruses, showing the best scan time, the highest detection rate and a lower price than other products. Dr.Web took second place with a lower detection rate, longer scan times, and double the price of Outpost. The bronze medal went to NOD32 Standard, but on a somewhat conditional basis: while the detection rate is not much lower than Outpost’s, the scanning process itself took unbearably long, which does not sit well with a relatively high price”. Read the complete test results here.

As Russian is probably not a language most of our readers speak or read, please ask us for more details – or take advantage of the Promt machine translation software promotion at the end of this newsletter!

Your guide to Outpost 2009 features

Agnitum BlogAs you know, we are currently working on the Outpost 2009 product line, which is now in beta. While we are on the road to this milestone, Alexey Belkin, Chief Software Architect for Agnitum, has been sharing his insight into the new features and improvements, over on the Agnitum blog. If you haven’t been following Alexey’s postings, you can catch up with them here – and please do send us your thoughts and ideas as we develop the products. Many of the improvements have been prompted by you, our users, so the chances are that if you’ve made a suggestion about improvements in the software, you’ll find we’ve already taken care of it! Look for new information about Outpost Pro 2009 in the Agnitum blog every Monday!
