Of all the limited number of independent firewall developers, Agnitum stays as a clear leader, both in the quality of the underlying technology and post-deal support service. Not surprisingly, after a serious evaluation of alternatives, Lavasoft eventually chose to go with us in a mutually beneficial alliance
St. Petersburg, Russia (PRWEB) November 16, 2005
Agnitum signs a technology transfer agreement to incorporate its award-winning Outpost Firewall PRO engine into Lavasoft’s product lineup.
Firewall protection is an important constituent of a complete computer protection package. Alongside with mighty antiviruses, antispyware and other security fortifications for an Internet-connected computer the firewall still continues to be a must-have. Through the firewall, users can restrict access to their computers from the outside, and proactively defend their systems against the latest Internet-borne risks. By having this type of defense in place, a firewall constitutes a sizeable security boost to the owners of home and office PCs.
Outpost Firewall PRO has received numerous awards and accolades from leading computer magazines and security experts for its powerful protection and rich usability features. Its baseline firewall capability has been a driving force behind partnership deals with industry heavyweights such as Novell and Sophos.
Lavasoft, which makes products that protect millions of home and corporate users against the threat posed by spyware, will complement its existing security offerings with the arrival of a re-branded Lavasoft Personal Firewall product. "We were pleased to partner with Agnitum to offer customers a more comprehensive security suite", said Fernando Francisco, Vice President, Strategy and Business Development for Lavasoft.
"Of all the limited number of independent firewall developers, Agnitum stays as a clear leader, both in the quality of the underlying technology and post-deal support service. Not surprisingly, after a serious evaluation of alternatives, Lavasoft eventually chose to go with us in a mutually beneficial alliance," said Mikhail Penkovsky, Agnitum VP of Sales and Marketing after the signing of the agreement.
