Editors' Review

+

Online Armor has a professional feel that is typical of freeware versions of advanced security tools, pared down to its firewall options. The installation is blazingly fast, taking less than 30 seconds from double-clicking on the installer to running the firewall. Once installed, Online Armor defaults to running its installation wizard, which it calls a Safety Check.

In addition to the firewall, which configures as much as possible during the start-up wizard so you're not bothered later, Online Armor comes with a keylogger guard, tamper protection, malicious script and worm protection, and limited autostart protection. The paid versions offer more, such as antivirus and anti-malware protection, phishing filters, online banking protection, and e-mail filtering. Even with these limitations, if you're not satisfied with the recently much-improved Windows firewall, Online Armor competently defends you from a wide range of sophisticated attacks.

"Excellent True Firewall for the Pro User"

Pros

* Structured,
* functional,
* easy to use,

* Great for the Professional Computer User,
* Thoroughly protects from the net and from the applications already installed on your computer.
Helps me keep a good EYE on my software!

- Not for the computer newbie or anyone without much of a computer knowledge however there is an option to keep in on auto.

Summary

Great for the expert user.
Need a modern computer.
Keeps good tab of your software running on your computer.
Protection from the net.

"Not too bad but one drawback (for me)"

July 13, 2010  |  By hashishin666

 |  Version: Online Armor Free 4.0.0.45

Pros

Decent firewall that made me feel confident in it's ability.

Cons

Excessive CPU usage.

Summary

I do like this firewall and had it not for it taking up to 50% of my cpu usage at times then I would have still been using it. The excessive cpu usage spoils what is otherwise a good little firewall from installation to operation. Don't believe the thirty second installation stuff either. It achieves this by setting up after installation. This after installation setup process takes quite some time.
