Editors' Review

Ghostsurf Platinum offers a solid suite designed to address several aspects of online security. The Privacy Control Center does a decent job of setting your security level, enabling you to block cookies, hide IP addresses, and encrypt all transferred data. The antispyware module, Spycatcher, lets you schedule and run spyware scans and remove malicious components fairly effectively, though we noticed a few false positives in our tests. You can create a password in the Personal Data Vault to keep files, documents, and passwords safe from prying eyes. The Adarmor component customizes the advertising content displayed on Web pages and automatically blocks pop-up ads. The final component of the suite, Trackscleaner, automatically detects and deletes browser histories and the cache quickly.

We like being able to take care of most aspects of Web surfing security from one app. The interface is clean and intuitive. Each component is easily accessible and quick summaries of each inform us about what we're getting before launching. One concern is that setting the Privacy Control Center to its highest level made it impossible to get to some of our favorite sites, but in most cases surfing was not affected. Overall, we found this suite a solid defense against several types of intruders. Though each component may have better alternatives, this suite is a solid choice for those who want to ensure a secure Web surfing environment with the convenience of one program.
