    "DO NOT EVEN THINK OF DOWNLOADING THIS HORROR SHOW!"

    September 01, 2013   |   By diowrite

    Version: Agnitum Outpost Security Suite Free 7.1.1

    Pros

    None.
    Sadly, I cannot rate this with even one star.
    I think this Suite was a good idea but...

    Cons

    This is my Opinion of this "thing."
    This thing looked good But THEN...
    BEWARE.
    Honest.
    I installed the Security Suite and then couldn't get online.
    My IP configs were changed.
    My Network Adapters and Adapter Drivers were wiped out.
    I no longer had any IP address.
    Are you kidding me?
    I guess this really is a Security Suite because, if you cannot use the Internet, hey, no malware or viruses to worry about.
    My system is destroyed.
    If you use this Outpost thing, and it works for you, consider yourself lucky.
    Was this EVER tested before they released it on the unsuspecting public?
    But, what do I know?
    I have only been working with computers since 1967.
    Ho Hum.

    Summary

    This Outpost thing was actually a good idea.
    In reality, it is dangerous and destructive.
    Run for the hills before you even think of using this Horror Show.
    Use at your own risk.
    Or, better yet, do not download this.
    I am not kidding.

    "Truly Proactive Protection"

    November 11, 2012   |   By tjraptis

    Version: Agnitum Outpost Security Suite Free 7.1.1

    Pros

    -Decent malware signatures
    -I like that it has an evaluation period even though its free because i like to be able to try what im using before i officially use it
    - Not overly confusing or aggressive when in auto learn mode.
    -Doesnt sandbox Harmless files like other free products with the sandbox feature
    -Updating is Decent

    Cons

    - Updating is not always on time

    Summary

    Overall this is a good product. Like CNET said in their review. It has set a new level of basic protection for free products.

    Updated on Nov 11, 2012

    I forgot to add that it doesnt have a sandbox feature...

    "Very good free Security Suite"

    October 24, 2012   |   By and93hil

    Version: Agnitum Outpost Security Suite Free 7.1.1

    Pros

    It uses little system resources. It has a high detection rate. Compared to many other AVs, you can quit it while in Windows. That is very usefull to run blocked Software, eg. a keygen. The interface is easy to use. The firewall works excellent. You can set the security level of the firewall. Anything between no of and so high, that it will even ask you weather wou want to run certain Windows processes...

    Cons

    None, except maybe, that the free version doesn't have the so called "priority updates". That just means that you can't update on demand. Instead it will automatically update once a day. And in my opinion updating once a still makes the engine up-to-date.

    Summary

    A very good free AV. The firewall is very good. Simple interface. The only difference to the paid version are the "pririty updates". But I think the automatic update once a day is more than enough. Compared to comodo, it is much easier on resources. I've used it for long now and I didn't get any malware so far. I did get a trojan once when using Microsoft Security Essentials. The ability to completely exit the software and turn of all its services is also very usefull, as you will be able to use software, that got blocked, something not possible with many other suites, as they can't be turned of. If you can live with it being updated "only" once a day, this is certainly a very good choice.

    "Very good security suite."

    September 20, 2012   |   By hrakleitos

    Version: Agnitum Outpost Security Suite Free 7.1.1

    Pros

    I think, that so powerful protection from a free internet security suite is enough for a user.

    Cons

    I can't delete the remains after the unistallation of the app from
    a virtual O.S. through i test it.

    Summary

    If i compare this security suite with similar paid known softwares is
    clearly better.

    "maybe the paid version is good"

    August 13, 2012   |   By cnetguy7

    Version: Agnitum Outpost Security Suite Free 7.1.1

    Pros

    -decent firewall
    -excellent ratings on matousec.
    -free
    -not heavy
    -not overly aggressive like ZoneAlarm.

    Cons

    -lacking latest virus definitions in free.
    -not the best free suite. Comodo is way better but Outpost is better than zonealarm.
    -pesky pop ups like in Comodo IS.
    cannot see the benefit of using free unless you wanna try before purchasing the paid version. WHY? because the VIRUS ENGINE is a year old and you only get up to date definitions unless you pay for it.

    Summary

    You would be better off with a free suite like Comodo or a combination of free AV and firewall and url checker like Bitdefender's trafficlight(free).

    June 14, 2012   |   By dishhead

    Pros

    HAVEN'T FOUND THE PRO'S TO THIS SECURITY SUITE YET DO NOT THINK IT HAS ANY IT TRIES TO SELL YOU THE PRO VERSION BEFORE YOU EVER GET IT INSTALLED THATS GETTING OF TO A BAD START!

    Cons

    ITS HARD TO GET THE PRODUCT KEY FOR THIS SUITE I HAD TO TRY THREE DIFFERENT TIMES BEFORE I GOT THE BIG ASSED KEY FOR IT NO JOKE A FIVE LINER!

    Summary

    WELL LETS SEE HERE WERE TO START I INSTALLED OUTPOST ON ONE OF MY LAPTOPS BECAUSE ITS SUPPOSED TO BE VERRY LIGHT ON SYSTEM RESOURCES WELL THAT MAY BE BE BUT I GOT WELCOMED WITH YOU HAVE 2 DAYS TO ACTIVATE AND THATS NOT THE WORST PART THAT CAME WHEN I TRIED TO UPDATE IT NOW I GUESS THE JOKE WAS ON ME BECAUSE IT INFORMED ME THAT SOME OF THE MALWARE UPDATES COULD NOT BE INSTALLED WHAT GOOD IS ANTI MALWARE THAT CANT BE UPDATED I HAD COMODO ON THIS LAPTOP BEFORE I GUESS I WILL REINSTALL IT AT THE VERY LEAST IT WORKS I HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH COMPUTERS FOR 15 YEARS NOW I MAY SOUND LIKE A CRAZY PERSON BUT REST ASSURED IM NOT I DO NOT THINK I COULD TELL ANYONE ABOUT THIS SOFTWARE OR PASS THE INFO ON TO A FRIEND IT'S JUST NOT READY FOR PRIMETIME ITS WEAK FIREWALL IS IS THE FIRST THING I NOTICED ABOUT IT AND THE FACT THAT IF IT'S NOT A PRO VERSION YOU JUST MIGHT BE SCREWED AND NOT EVEN KNOW IT BECAUSE THE PRIORITY UPDATES ARE ONLY FOR THE PRO VERSION AND AS WITH ANY A/V FIRST UPDATES ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT RUNNING THE SOFTWARE OUT OF DATE IS UNSAFE NOTE YOU HAVE NO REAL PROTECTION UNTILL THIS SOFTWARE UPDATES.

    "Unstable, slow, troublesome suite"

    June 11, 2012   |   By web_penpal

    Version: Agnitum Outpost Security Suite Free 7.1.1

    Pros

    None at all.

    Cons

    1. The AV has very low detection rates, and very very poor at cleaning up virus infections. Even MS Security Essentials (VB100) has better detection rates, cleans better, and is free.
    2. The smartdecision in this suite slows down browsing and causes the computer to freeze for 2-3 minutes or longer each time you try to run an application. They should call it stupiddecision instead.
    3. The updates are very irregular, most times the updater runs but no updates are available. Somehow the updater seems to be sending data out from the PC. The log does not show, but other process monitoring software shows. Strange. Is this company sending any of my private data to themselves?
    4. This suite causes intermittent bluescreen crashes, especially on warm reboots.
    5. Firebox and IE browsers seem to be non responsive for long periods of time after installing this suite. Browsing and downloading becomes very slow.

    Summary

    Don't bother to give yourself more trouble. Security suites are meant to be like bodyguards that protect us. But Outpost turn out to be a bodyguard that annoys you and makes your life miserable on the PC. There are better products out there: AVAST + COMODO gives much better protection with less trouble.

    "Its the best ever!!!"

    February 18, 2012   |   By sparx2k

    Version: Agnitum Outpost Security Suite Free 7.1.1

    Pros

    Its fee and easy to use and it works!!!

    Cons

    None I can think off.

    Summary

    I have been using the paid version on my laptop for 10 years and have never had a problem. I was happy when the free version came out, I use the free version on all my computers(5 total) and have not had any problems. unlike the other free antivirus software out there, this one will help you remove a virus if you get 1 and the others wont. I have tried all the other free antivirus software and most of the paid antivirus software out there and this is the best.
