Outpost Firewall PRO Publisher's description
from Agnitum Ltd.
Multi-layered Internet security solution featuring a firewall and antispyware
Outpost Firewall Pro delivers proactive defense against hackers, spyware, Trojans, botnets, keyloggers, ID theft and other Internet-borne threats.
The integrated Anti-Spyware module defends against the broad range of malicious programs. Its on-demand scanner enables scanning custom Locations, while the real-time monitor is constantly on guard against the activation of spyware. File checks complete much faster because the SmarScan2-driven engine examines only items altered since the last scan.
The award-winning bidirectional firewall guards users' network access, keeping them safe from inappropriate or malicious connections, loss of private data, unwanted program activity and risky URLs. The firewall's unique Attack Detection protects LANs against man-in-the-Middle attacks and other sophisticated intrusions.
The Host Protection module takes a new approach to combating malware: it pre-empts the Infection by examining the behavior of a monitored object, proactively blocking it from performing any unauthorized activity. This type of defense-in-advance helps to halt unknown malware before it can activate its destructive payload.
Special tamper-proof technologies that safeguard the integrity of Outpost components ensure the program cannot be deactivated by targeted attacks.
The versatile Web Control module safeguards you against the Internet's darker side. It steers you away from malware-hosting sites, prevents inadvertent disclosure of personal information, limits your Exposure to potentially unsafe web properties and keeps your identity private.
