St. Petersburg, Russia (PRWEB) February 26, 2014
Agnitum, the PC security experts, are delighted to announce a well-earned Virus Bulletin certification on the brand-new Windows 8.1 platform. The tests were conducted in December 2013 yet the results were made official earlier this month. Outpost Security Suite Pro, ver. 8.1.2, wins Agnitum’s virus lab a third award in a row (three entries — three passes).
Whereas the Windows 8.1 comparatives seemed challenging for some regular VB entrants, Agnitum’s all-in-one product proved ready and performing its best under the new OS. Outpost Security Suite demonstrated undisputed stability and high scanning speeds.
Agnitum’s virus lab, heir to a third-party antivirus technology, has been working at a record pace in the last 18 months to keep up with and outperform the seasoned competitors, delivering optimal antivirus protection to Outpost users.
As the Virus Bulletin observer comments, "Agnitum was absent from our comparatives for a spell while the company’s in-house team took over maintenance of the scanning engine from original developer VirusBuster — but since its return, Agnitum has put in some reliable performances."
The anti-malware module in Agnitum’s flagship product Outpost Security Suite Pro delivered flawless protection by detecting 100% of the samples from the main list and extended WildList collection, without a single false positive.
December 2013 comparatives encompassed 44 participants. Adding up to robust detection showings, Outpost garnered a "Solid" stability rating, outperforming 32 competitors with minor and major issues.
Agnitum’s latest Outpost Security Suite Pro 9.0 (released in December 2013) brings users the ability to clean up malware infections and implement full-scale program deployment on infected systems.
The new features include:
Emergency first aid
If ransomware or any other sophisticated malware denies users access to their computer and keeps Windows from functioning, they can now create a bootable rescue CD or USB drive with Outpost Live Disk utility. This tool will eliminate the malware that is preventing Outpost from being installed and clears the way for a normal installation process.
Installation on an infected system
Some malware processes are designed to prevent installation of security software. In response, Outpost 9 can install and run a scan for active malware in Windows Safe Mode. Once any pre-existing infections are removed, Outpost can step in to protect the system from future threats.
Behind tangible results goes less visible yet no less significant work as a full-scaled antivirus manufacturer. Agnitum’s lab actively participates in sample exchange networks and contributes to the WildList.
On the networking front, Agnitum has attended a host of security events in the last two years, including CARO Workshop, AMTSO meetings and WATeR conference in October 2013.
