Agnitum’s Outpost Security Suite Pro 2008 achieves Virus Bulletin 100% certification
ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA, December 4, 2007 – Internet security experts Agnitum announced today the results of the latest anti-virus tests carried out by Virus Bulletin magazine on Outpost Security Suite 2008 and 32 other personal anti-virus and security suite products running under Windows 2000. The VB 100 award is an important indicator of competency in virus and spyware detection and timely updates – crucial factors in the battle to resist evolving malicious software. By achieving 100% for its anti-virus capabilities in these tests, Outpost Security Suite Pro clearly shows that it is fully compliant with today’s requirements for effective anti-virus protection.
According to Virus Bulletin:
“the product looked good and proved pleasant to work with, offering a wide range of modules which sadly went unexplored. With good detection across the test sets and no false positives generated in the clean sets, Agnitum earns a VB100 award”.
Outpost Security Suite Pro 2008, Agnitum’s all-in-one solution based on the award-winning Outpost Firewall Pro 2008, offers:
- All-in-one anti-malware for comprehensive antivirus and antispyware defense, with SmartScan technology to boost scanning speed;
- A two-way firewall to safeguard connections and prevent data leakage;
- Host protection to protect against zero-day threats and sophisticated malware;
- Web control for safe surfing and blocking unwanted content;
- Self-learning anti-spam that integrates directly into Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express and Vista Mail.
The new Vista-compatible architecture of Outpost Security Suite 2008 provides all-round protection – in addition to detecting viruses, spyware and adware by signatures, the product incorporates proactive protection that prevents zero-day threats and leakage of confidential data.
“The Outpost Pro 2008 product line represents a new generation of Agnitum’s security solutions,” comments Mikhail Penkovsky, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Agnitum. “All our products are now compatible with every version of Windows from 2000 onwards and support both 32 and 64-bit platforms. This award is a great reward for the past two years of re-architecting the product, on top of our nine years in developing security applications.”
The VB100 award comes hot on the heels of another 100% award on November 2, 2007, when Agnitum’s flagship product Outpost Firewall Pro 2008 scored 100 % in the Matousec Transparent Security leak tests, beating out more than 40 competiors.
