Inbound and outbound system and application firewall delivers powerful protection against a wide range of threats from local networks and the Internet and prevents unauthorized access to your PC. Protection for your OS and applications is easy with System and Application Guard, and File and Folder Lock keeps your sensitive information away from prying eyes.
The program activity tracker lets you review system modifications in real time so you know when an application is misbehaving.
Web Control ensures you don't accidentally visit poisoned or phishing websites, limiting your exposure to potential identity theft and web-based exploits. The firewall also ensures that your wired and wireless networks are secured against eavesdropping and internal breaches - great for home offices.
The Attack Detection module combats attacks from local networks and the Internet.
SmartDecision technology facilitates decision-making in security issues - you get visual guidance on how to better proceed (allow or block) along with a corresponding window color - red, yellow or green. Outpost keeps all of its critical files in a digital sandbox to prevent malware from targeting and terminating its protection.
But all of this power is surprisingly light on system resource usage; in particular the new data filtering optimization enables the firewall to process information faster and more efficiently. Above all, Outpost Firewall Pro is easy to use, yet highly configurable, to appeal to beginners and experts alike.
And the continuously-expanding ImproveNet database automatically ensures new application security configurations are available as soon as they've passed compatibility testing.
