30 months of hard work at a record pace allowed Outpost antivirus solutions to reach and overcome the high industry standards.

Agnitum, the PC security expert and manufacturer of the Outpost range of security products, reveals its impressions of the latest VB conference. This conference is an annual event at which the brains of IT security from across the globe gather to share their ideas and keep the industry on the cutting edge.

Agnitum's virus lab joined the club of prominent AV vendors two-and-a-half years ago by inheriting and remodeling a third-party engine. 30 months of hard work at a record pace allowed Outpost antivirus solutions to reach and overcome the high industry standards.

Behind tangible results goes less visible yet no less significant social and networking activity. Agnitum's lab actively participates in sample exchange networks and contributes to the WildList (the list of the most widespread malware samples detected by security analysts). Agnitum has attended a host of security events in the last years, including CARO Workshop, AMTSO meetings and VB2012-2013 conferences.

At VB2014 earlier this year Agnitum team joined the list of exhibitors with a dedicated booth, gaining an opportunity to showcase their security strategies and boast their accomplishments on the data protection front. Agnitum sponsored a contest for security geeks and awarded the lucky winners with a GoPRO prize.

The event provided three days of learning opportunities and networking with industry experts.

VB2014 focused on the key themes:

  • Malware & botnets
  • Anti-malware tools & techniques
  • Mobile devices
  • Hacking & vulnerabilities
  • Spam & social networks
  • Network security

As before, Agnitum team seized on the opportunity to get new interesting insights and share their thoughts. Some of these ideas may impact further development of Outpost products, so loyal customers should keep their eye open for the updates.

Just before VB2014, Outpost team participated in the WildList Reporters Meeting, a closed event for The WildList Organization International members. Great format for exchanging antimalware data and planning for the future to keep ahead of cybercrime.
