The next milestone will be the delivery of the Outpost 7.0 Release Candidate (RC) to the public (an internal release candidate will be made available to Agnitum's beta tester community a little earlier), and that's not going to be long in coming. The scheduled date is in early May. RC will be available in five languages: English, French, German, Russian, and Spanish.
We'll keep you posted regarding availability, but in the meantime, here’s a quick reminder of the main new functionality in version 7 of Outpost Firewall Pro, Outpost Security Suite Pro and Outpost Antivirus Pro:
- Application guard prevents sensitive data stored by various Internet-enabled applications such as instant messaging, web browsers, e-mail clients and e-banking software from being compromised. NEW! A whole slew of new AppGuard rules has been added during this public beta stage.
- File and folder lock enables protection of locally-stored assets against corruption, modification or illegal access by other users or malware.
- Real-time file and registry activity provides an invaluable opportunity to inspect system events at close range by monitoring the activity of any given active process and tracking system changes in real time.
- Restored content filter analyzes web content and/or URL addresses for the presence of defined “stop” keywords before a certain page is loaded, steering the user away from suspicious or infective sources on the Internet.
The Release Candidate will be available at the public beta page.
