Outpost Firewall Pro
Outpost Firewall Pro, provides a superior arsenal of defense against PC infiltration by
denying unauthorized access by remote hackers and protecting against data theft, denial-of-service
attacks, privacy violation, Trojan horses, spyware and more. Four major criteria define Outpost
Firewall Pro: security, control, privacy and ease of use.
Outpost Anti-Spyware proactively monitors active programs for known spyware traces, controls internal attributes of
the operating system, prevents program tampering, and prevents spyware from activating. The on-demand scanner lets
users run custom or recommended spyware scans of fixed and removable disks, USBs and other storage devices, and is
updated automatically at user-definable intervals. Additionally, Outpost’s unique ID block lets users protect specific
items of confidential information such as tax identification, bank account numbers, passwords, or insurance policy details;
once defined, this information is locked into the computer and cannot be transferred through email, web forms or IM chat
sessions. The Active Content and Attachment Quarantine options close off the most common attack vectors used by spyware.
