Outpost Security Suite 8 recognized for excellent protection level in the latest Proactive Security Challenge 64

We are pleased to announce that the 64-bit version of Outpost Security Suite Pro 8 has achieved Excellent and Recommended ranking in the most recent Proactive Security Challenge test conducted by the Matousec.com lab (www.matousec.com). This research project, performed on March 20, 2013, put Outpost ahead of 35 security suites tested against 110 Matousec security challenges.

The 90% efficiency rating received in this test underscores Outpost’s commitment to 64-bit security, a section of the market that is largely overlooked by most security vendors.

In addition to the well-known leak tests, the Proactive Security Challenge encompasses spying, autorun and self-defense tests that aim to breach protection and make use of every potential vulnerability in security products.

The Agnitum Team has been focused on proactive protection and preventive security mechanisms since the company started 14 years ago, which has been a significant driver for the top ranks and recommendations we’ve received from Matousec and other security labs over the years.

With every new release, we analyze the ever-changing security threats that may put 32- and 64-bit Windows systems in danger and close those loopholes proactively before we introduce the new Outpost to the market.

"Great job Outpost! Outpost Security Suite Pro 8 is once again better than the previous version", comments Matousec.com about the latest test results.

Along with the highest level of proactive defense, Outpost continues to enhance its reactive protection arsenal. As we’ve regularly written about here, all Outpost solutions have been solid performers in the Virus Bulletin VB100 tests. For instance, Outpost was one of just five solutions to receive 12 consecutive VB100 awards in the period 2010–2012. Last year, we opened our own virus lab, where the goal is to keep detection rates high and the signature base fat and growing — all without impacting the performance of your PC.

The winning combination of cutting-edge proactive and top-notch reactive protection is what actually gives Outpost users their well-deserved peace of mind.

As for Matousec.com lab, you can read more about these guys, as well as the Proactive Security Challenge and its testing methodology, at www.matousec.com. The detailed test results are available at http://www.matousec.com/projects/firewall-challenge/results.php.

Well done Agnitum!
but it's good have a look to your AV engine again because your AV engine is not so good as your firewall!
Thanks

Our developers are working on improving ONS, however, it is unlikely that the new version of ONS will appear in nearest future.

Since OP 8's release on Dec 17, 2013, there has been zero (0) news about future development(s) OP... Has the office closed? Has the development team gone to Kaspersky or even Avast? There an many dead companies that still have webpages up... I hope it is not Agnitum...

Our office is definitely not closed. New version is being development now, so we are not sure why do you think our developers could leave us for Kaspersky or Avast.

Noting the above comments... Is the development schedule quarterly? That's great new about the Polish partnership!

The development process is constant. We do not release a new version until it is well done and polished.

I believe the point is directed more so at the lack of communication. The last Agnitum directions was in March of 2013. Agnitum purchased VirusBuster in August of 2012, and the Windows 8 compatible version was released December of 2012. It is all well and good to release news about third party product testing and partnerships, but the user base is eager to have news shared about upcoming product releases. Several blog/directions authors have come and gone. We need not concern ourselves necessarily with who works at Agnitum, but it would be appreciated to have more news released related to product development (features that will be included to make Agnitum comparable to other products on the market). Also makes sense to energize the user base and generate excitement about the upcoming release. While I certainly applaud efforts to release to release a finished, robust product, it would be more well-suited for Agntium to respond with "follow us in Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc) or watch this space as we hope to provide more information about the ongoing development and upcoming release in the coming months." We post these comments not to be critical, but because we are fans of Agnitum, and care about the direction of the company.
