Editors' Review

+
This firewall offers the rare combination of a powerful feature set and an easy-to-use design. During installation, the program finds all popular network-enabled applications on your PC and automatically sets security policies for each. This eliminates the endless pop-up boxes you get with many firewalls, wherein you must allow or disallow certain processes from accessing your machine. We appreciate the ability to fine-tune all aspects of network usage using rules, and the easy-to-analyze logs are another big plus. In our tests, the firewall demonstrated good performance, successfully blocking several Trojan horses from our PC. Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro also enhances your Web-surfing experience by blocking pop-ups, Flash ads, and banners, as well as potentially dangerous elements on pages. However, the program isn't perfect. The spyware protection introduced in the newest version didn't prove very reliable in our tests, as it let some well-known offenders squeak through. It's nice the program includes a spyware scanner, but it also wasn't 100 percent thorough. Nevertheless, persons looking for a robust yet low-maintenance firewall should take a close look at Agnitum Outpost Pro--so long as they don't uninstall their other antispyware programs.

"Inexpensive and effective"

April 17, 2013  |  By assign1234

 |  Version: Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro 8.0

Pros

Solid firewall protection
Relatively inexpensive to buy with a lifetime license for 3 pc's
Not a resource hog like Norton's by Symantec

Cons

None that I could see

Summary

I have been using this product on all three of my family pc's and its proven very effective. Virus infections are rare and port attacks are picked up and reported. Its a solid product, that easy to install and use.

"Bad sales practice - poor product"

January 15, 2013  |  By The_Lyppard_Man

 |  Version: Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro 8.0

Pros

Attractive product with lots of features.

Cons

I purchased this product at short notice as according to their website at the time, a lifetime licence had to be purchased before 31st December 2012. So I took a chance and purchased a 3-PC licence. After 31st December, I noticed that the deadline had changed to 31st January 2013, so I could have had much longer to evaluate the product. Had I done so, I would not have purchased a licence as it randomly slowed my PC to a crawl by causing many of my installed programs to start using huge amounts of CPU. I have since uninstalled it and replaced it with Microsoft Security Essentials, which has solved the problem. One final sting in the tail though - I have since noted that the company offers no refunds. So in essence, they tricked me to hurry up and purchase a useless piece of software and then don't offer any refund. Buyer beware.

Summary

Given the sharp selling practice and questionable quality of the product, I would steer well clear of this company's products. You have been warned!
