Agnitum introduces Outpost Firewall Pro 4.0
The computer security experts at Agnitum launched Outpost Firewall Pro 4.0. This new version provides home, small-office and mobile corporate users with powerful protection against spyware, keyloggers, Trojans, hackers, identity theft, rootkits, wireless network hijacking and other Internet-borne attacks.
The software runs under Windows XP, x64, 2000, 98 and ME and is available in English, Spanish, French, German, and Russian.
Outpost Firewall Pro 4.0 delivers this high level of protection with a range of new and improved tools, including support for 64-bit operating systems.
Strengthened anti-leak functionality, preventing all known methods for stealing information from a user’s PC by Trojans, spyware and adware that exploit operating system holes. With version 4, users may customize permissions and restrictions on outbound data transfers by any application attempting to gain control of another, attempting to launch a browser, or attempting to use the memory space of a trusted application.
Spyware protection now blocks all known malicious applications. Additional protection against unknown malicious applications has been added with the forced scanning of all applications before they are permitted to execute. To do this, Outpost simulates execution of the program in a closed ‘sandbox’ and tests it for legitimacy before permitting or blocking its actual execution. System performance is unaffected.
