ST. PETERSBURG, Russia -- More than 50,000 computer users from around the world have downloaded the release candidate of Outpost Firewall Pro 4.0 since it was first posted in early September by the computer security experts at Agnitum Ltd.
"This includes existing users of Outpost, but also an extraordinarily high percentage -- nearly 50 percent -- of new users testing Outpost for the first time," said Mikhail Penkovsky, global vice president of Sales and Marketing at Agnitum. "Clearly, this demonstrates pent-up demand for better Windows security -- and users are evaluating their options."
The preview gives users outside Agnitum a chance to test, experiment and provide feedback to the company. Testing has confirmed that no major issues exist, and Agnitum expects to soon set a date for final release of the award-winning software.
The new version of Outpost 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.
