Outpost Firewall PRO 4.0 Wins The Termination Test Award

Outpost Firewall PRO 4.0 Wins The Termination Test Award
Independent tests have determined that Outpost Firewall Pro 4.0 from Agnitum is the software firewall best able to defend itself from the type of direct and brutal attacks that can cripple, disable and shut down less robust firewalls.

Outpost was the only one of 13 software firewalls to pass all 38 tests conducted by Guillame Kaddouch, an expert in computer security who operates the security web site firewallleaktester.com. Test results are available on Kaddouch's website at http://www.firewallleaktester.com/termination.php

"In the wild malware often choose to terminate the security software in the system they are running on, instead of trying to use complex methods to circumvent them. The "termination test" I have done was to shed some light on the current firewalls resistance against termination," said Kaddouch. "When Agnitum released Outpost 4.0 with it's 'self-defense' feature, I wanted to know how efficient it was by curiosity, and how it would stand compared to all of the current most famous firewalls."

A 30-days trial version of Outpost Firewall PRO is available for download from here.
