The results of Outpost performing in the extensive firewall test were published in the France's PC Expert May 2005 issue. Outpost Firewall has blocked more leak tests than any other product in test and won the first place with the EditorÂ´s Choice award. The magazine considers OutpostÂ´s defense arsenal as the most powerful in comparison to other firewalls in test, including the Windows Firewall.
Outpost Firewall Pro won the special recognition from the magazine in the following nominations:
-Best Firewall overall.
-Best protection against hackers.
-Maximum blocking of leaks.
-Highest efficiency and ease of use.
The test results also stress the usability of OutpostÂ´s pre-defined rule settings, that start protect right after the software is installed. That means that the novice users do not need to go through the sophisticated process of the settings configuration, and can start using Outpost out-of-box. However, experienced users can configure the program according to their needs and set particular rules for the applications on their computer. Another feature of Outpost that makes it different from itsÂ´ competitors is an outstanding Log Viewer that gives a unique possibility to track all the connections performed from the system
The conclusion of the magazine is as follows:
"...a well deserved first place because it excells in the protection against hacker attacks ... It's the best armed firewall to block furtive outgoing connections."
