There are still many users striving to find the best security solution for their computers and the wide variety of applications that claim to they can provide the most powerful protection one would need can be quite confusing.
In case you are still trying to decide which software is most appropriate for your environment, you can take a closer look at Outpost Security Suite Free. Since it is more than a simple antivirus program that will only detect and remove malware threats, this utility comes with a broader scope to cover other areas as well.
From the easy to use and friendly GUI you can check out immediately the status of all the components and fix on the spot the issues any of them could have. A great addition is the built-in firewall that should handle all incoming and outgoing network traffic to block intruders that may want to get inside your PC.
Unfortunately, the firewall module is not too customizable and you can only create rules that apply to all the applications installed onto the system. Other products have a more simple and effective approach which takes into account the programs themselves as well. More precisely, Outpost Security Suite Free doesn't offer an option to put any processes or apps onto a list that either blocks or allows their functioning.
More prone to personalization is the Anti-Malware module that has its own quarantine where all the identified threats are send to. Thus, the protection scope, operation mode and scan methods can be set in accordance to your needs with just a few clicks. The stealing of sensitive data is in the care of the Anti-Leak component that joins forces with the Anti-Spam and Mail Scanner modules to broaden the security spectrum.
To sum things up, Outpost Security Suite Free is a solid candidate and the shortcomings of its firewall is to be easily avoided by using an independent one that can get along with this software solution.

hello everybody this is the peace security and today we'll be taking a look at a new product that is at post free security suite let me just open up the interface now this is a pretty simple and face you can get around pretty easily but I don't see too much for the advanced users not too many customizations they have got some advanced settings here however so yeah you can do just about whatever you want so and face is pretty nice doesn't look that nice to me though it's not that Morton but it's okay that's protection that matters now as you can see real time protection is enabled and everything set optimal so they do have some different settings here you can set it to maximum if you think you're really vulnerable they've got a firewall and they've also got nanti lake now this one has four security levels by default it's set to optimal but I'm sure if you take it up to advanced or maximum it's just bad gonna block everything but this exactly i'm not sure what to call this exactly this is kind of some kind of a system monitor i don't know exactly if this is a kind of like intrusion prevention or behavior monitoring i think it's somewhere in the middle most dangerous activities or monitored network access request from changed executables or monitored so yeah something like that some security component so i'll just leave everything in stock settings i'll just show you that the application is up to date and once this is done we'll run our test first i have about 11 or 12 links here that i just grabbed from clean max they're all pretty new less than 24 hours so we'll just try them out and see how a post defense us now one more interesting setting that I found here is the auto learn mode now by default it is in auto learn mode so that it learns for about a day or two and then it gets back to normal mode I just disable the auto learn so that we kind of get to know how this application works so I guess I'll be back when the update is done there you go the update is done so i'll just head finish and that's it for the interface now let's just take a look at what it uses when we're not doing anything in terms of RAM now we've got to process and both use about 20 max so it's around forty megabytes of RAM usage which is a little bit on the heavy side this application does seem slow down your system a little bit but not too much if you've got a fast computer you wouldn't mind that so anyway let's just get started here we've got 12 malicious links and we'll just open them and see how that post protects us now for this test i have got outpost out of training mode so let's just get started here first link is an exploit doesn't seem to have any problems loading up I don't think outpost of got any kind of web blocking feature their protection seems to be more or less executable file based so we'll see what happens so far I don't think anything's got in RAM and you will find out next one's a keylogger so it's actually crime we risk wear whatever you like to call it okay now they're anti leak comes up that application is attempting to modify another applications memory and by default it selected allow all activities for this application so I'll just hit the default setting and again it wants do something but there you go again it says by default allow so I'll allow there you go again it says allow all applications all activities for this application so I'm not doing anything I'm just doing what it's asking needs to it's telling me to allow it so I'm allowing it no problems with that now some of you might think quite in a block it well it didn't tell me to block it and i'm pretty sure it's going to come up with some alerts like these on legitimate application so can't just block them by myself unless it tells me to now this one's dead unfortunately so we'll try the next one that is a Trojan dropper this should work okay it's some fake flash kind of crochon and it doesn't seem to have any problems and loading up next one some crypt trojan so I'm pretty sure we've got some things running in memory right now if we take a look at the process okay finally an alert for a map post trojan.agent I'll just remove it now I'm not finding anything we're always suspicious so let's just continue here the next one is Trojan Delphie and it's disguised as some kind of a known extension I'll just rename it to executable and that should do the job now the next one's an adware pretty high detection ride one about 20 or so now the next one is another frozen dropper okay as you can see the adware goes into full screen and that's telling me that this application is requesting outbound connection so I'll just hit the default setting it says it's going to create some rules or let it create it and there go again it comes up to the lower but by default it wants me to allow everything so I'll just do the default action so we'll just let that run around and let's try this Trojan dropper now some annoying piece of adware as you can see should have been blocked by head pose now again I get this kind of forward but again it tells me that allow everything by default that's what it tells me it's getting more and more annoying as this test is progressing so I guess I'll have to close this piece of headwear here we'll have find that out is it there in applications now there you go it's pretty well disguised any simple user could be troubled quite a lot by this I'm not sure if this is the ad where it's taking up about ninety three percent of CPU not sure if that's the adware or do dropper so I guess I'll just try to continue without having to close that because I don't want to shut down the dropper that way it may not in fact the system and we not find we may not find out what exactly happened so let's try next one it's another Trojan next one some Lin 32 generic virus see if this one loads up don't know what that did let's just run this win32 generic and then we'll try out this rogue okay looks like this one was bought by the real time or maybe this rogue I'm not sure okay this one that's interesting it appeared to be blocked first time now it looks like it's okay there gets found again so that's not going to work so the last one so trojan.agent we'll just run it so far it's not looking very good for a post it's only block about three of links and the rest of staff seem to be running right here we've got this tempie XE you've got a couple process here this one wants administrative permission and we've got another processor so not looking good right now so anyway that's kind of about it for the link test cell just reboot the system run ccleaner and then i'll just run norton power eraser and I'll be right back okay let's take a look at what Norton has found the first one temp dot exe as you saw we were at was using up about ninety percent of CPU has been caught and all tweet by the cloud the second one is a startup item again it's a bad file and we'll just remove it and the last one is not select it for removal now that's pretty strange I don't know why ok so i scanned it with the clout and looks like it came up clean so I'm not very sure what to do this one so anyway we'll just remove the two things that it's found and then I guess I'll just do a scan with malwarebytes and i'll be right back with those results ok so malwarebytes has found additional five items and they're all trojans there you go this one that Trojan not sure what we called it yeah the Trojan Delphie as it's been found it's still there in downloads then we've got this Trojan okay it's called Trojan dropper by malwarebytes and thus Trojan Phoebe agent is present in appdata roaming and of course we've got this trojan.agent ass registry key we've got a back door there you go the one the first one the exploit that we tried that six you actually a back door and she can see it's done some changes to registry and this once again made some files and roaming so we'll just remove all of these there you go epcos can ask us it basically asks you for just about everything so it's not very user-friendly so I'll just reboot since we've got things running in memory there you go keeps asking questions all the time so I guess I'll be right back when let's scan from hitman pro as you can see hitman pro didn't find anything so we finally got this wreck cleaned up here at postern lead into a very good job there are too many missiles I'd say and they're anti Lee or whatever you want to call it is just not doing very well right now now either you set it in Auto learn mode and it's lit and it lets through everything as well and even if you change it to what I've done then also it's going to recommend you to allow everything so it asks you for everything just about everything it asks me about five times while running hitman pro and a couple of times while running malwarebytes so this by no means very useful component they have to work on it so that it can take some decisions itself and they need to have some kind of file rating system so that it can distinguish suspicious operation from a legitimate one because right now it's got nothing of its own it just asks you about everything man in case you want to block it you can block it but that way if you're that experience why would you run the file in the first place so I don't think it's very useful so that was dealing test now I have got some files I've got about 3 57 files I'll just run right quick scan without post and we'll see how many it finds I'll be back with the results now as you can see it has found some things and the action is set to remove other than a couple of viruses that it wants to cure but I'm just going to remove everything and hopefully okay let's just select everything and hit remove hopefully we can do that okay so by default as you can see it won't secure a lot of files so it's good to see that that they do have a disinfect feature a lot of security suites don't have this feature so it's pretty handy one so it's good that app post have paid attention to that but other than that their detection rate we'll just find out how good that is so I guess I'll be back when everything's done so now we're processing complete the scan and removal was pretty quick so that's something I liked about this application well but it's not looking very bright when it comes to the detection rate we've got 153 items left over so quite a lot of stuff so that's a detection ratio of only about fifty seven percent which is nowhere near what some good av's get so that poster still you know stock way down the bottom just going to involve the antivirus again so it's not looking very bright for at post right now yeah it's free application you can play around with it but it doesn't look like it's going to you a world of good even if you use it its protection is pretty bad that's quick it doesn't seem to slow down the system too much but as you saw just way too many messes to recommend this application so that's it for this review a pro certainly has a long way to go before it can start to compete with the other free applications so i hope you guys enjoyed this have a good day and talk to you guys later
