Agnitum Intros Outpost Security Suite

Agnitum delivered battle-hardened protection against malware, spam, identity theft, and other Internet-borne threats

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia -- The security experts at Agnitum today delivered battle-hardened protection against malware, spam, identity theft and other Internet-borne threats to home and small-business Windows users.

Available now, Outpost Security Suite Pro (OSS) is comprehensive, proactive security that combines in a single product the company's acclaimed personal firewall, an innovative all-in-one anti-malware engine, intelligent spam filter, tools to prevent unauthorized program interactivity, and self-protection protocols that block attempts by malware to bypass or shut down the program.

"OSS provides the robust security that users expect from Agnitum," said Mikhail Penkovsky, global vice-president for Marketing and Sales. "This is not just another security suite. Our broad-based proactive protection, built around one of the world's most advanced personal firewalls, delivers efficient, low-impact protection for all users, no matter what their level of experience."

The suite builds on Agnitum's Outpost Firewall Pro, an award-winning personal firewall that protects more than a million users worldwide and, according to PC Magazine (27 Nov. 2006), "is tough enough to resist any attack."

Over the years, Outpost Firewall Pro has added anti-spyware, identity theft protection and leak prevention, as well as the innovative community-based ImproveNet service, which provides users with tested and ready-to-use configuration rules that reflect real-world application installations.

With OSS, Agnitum introduces a unified anti-malware engine and SmartScan technologies, which speed the scanning of NTFS and FAT32 for malware by tracking new files and files that are modified, enabling users to scan just these changed or new files, not the entire system. Agnitum engineers integrated the unified anti-malware engine into OSS leveraging anti-virus technology licensed from VirusBuster, a Hungarian anti-virus developer that consistently achieves 100 percent certifications from Virus Bulletin.
