As you may judge by the features list, OAV is a proactive antivirus that inherited host protection and self-protection functionality from its big brother – Outpost Security Suite Pro 2008. Two antimalware labs (our partner’s analysts and the in-house team) are working to ensure latest virus and spyware updates, the most valuable factor in the antivirus industry.
What’s also special about Outpost Antivirus Pro is its price or rather the pricing model. Whereas an average AV vendor would set a higher complex price for the initial purchase (around $40) to cover its development and marketing expenses, Agnitum charges its customers just for the updates.
That is: with OAV you pay $19.95 at the first buy and for all following updates every year. We are not inclined to increase the price artificially as we didn’t create the product from scratch (but transferred existing functionality from OSS) and are not going to invest huge sums into advertising. Agnitum suggests the user pay for what really matters – daily database updates and support.
You can download the software at: http://www.agnitum.com/products/antivirus/download.php .
There’s an important note for those of you who prefer bundling standalone solutions. Outpost Antivirus should not be installed on a machine that’s already running Outpost Firewall Pro or Outpost Security Suite! Having two products on one machine will cause conflicts, as all the solutions contain host protection mechanisms that would be involved in a fight when used simultaneously. So let us deter you from such experiments.
However, being a user of Outpost Firewall Pro, you can upgrade to Outpost Security Suite that includes antivirus functionally with a 60% discount, click here for details.
Anyway, in case you already have Agnitum’s products installed and would like to somehow take advantage of Outpost Antivirus Pro despite the incompatibilities, there is going to be a special gift for you. You’ll find all the details in Agnitum’s March newsletter, so keep your eyes on: http://www.agnitum.com/news/agnitumnewsletter/index.php page or just subscribe to know the latest news.
