Agnitum Outpost Free is alive again
« on: April 27, 2009, 12:41:14 PM »
Talk about unexpected announcements. As you may recall, back when Outpost was a new player in the firewall arena, the app did have a basic free version that garnered critical praise for its features and thorough protection. Unfortunately, Agnitum never updated the software to include the many improvements done in the "Pro" versions, or to improve compatibility with the new Windows versions.

But it looks like the team decided to change this, and they're offering a free version of Outpost 2009, with the usual restrictions applied (you can also get the Pro version for free with TrialPay, but I think there's enough spam in the web nowadays). Still, Agnitum remains as one of the best options for a firewall according to the various tests done around the net, so even a basic version is a good alternative.

I would like to know why Agnitum decided to do this right now, and why they did not update the firewall during almost seven years, though.

Quote from: Major Geeks
Agnitum Outpost is the first personal firewall for Windows developed with Open Architecture. The Open Development Process proved its efficiency with the development of the Internet and with Linux. No company can be as fast, flexible and innovative at enhancing a closed product as thousands of developers from different countries all working on an open one.

Agnitum Outpost is the first personal firewall that supports plug-ins. Sample plug-ins are included to show how this revolutionary technology can easily be employed for such tasks as Intrusion Detection, Advertisement Blocking, Content Filtering, E-mail Guard and Privacy Control.

Agnitum Outpost is equipped with every feature a personal firewall should have. It is the most functional firewall in the world. Outpost supports all the latest security techniques and features such as: Full Stealth Mode, Anti-Leak, and MD5 Authentication.

Although Agnitum Outpost is setting new standards in the firewall market, it looks like any Office application! It needs no configuration before using-it starts protecting your system as soon as it's installed.

Compatibility is no problem. Agnitum Outpost brings you peace of mind in any environment no matter what:

- Connection type you are using (dial-up, DSL, ISDN, Cable, T1 or Satellite).
- MS Windows version (95,98, 98SE, ME, NT, 2000, XP).
- Network (standalone PC, office network, home network, VPN or Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing).
- Application you are using (every browser and e-mail client, Web or FTP server, ICQ, IRC, Online Gaming and every other application imaginable) .


Limitiations: Free version has a few less features and is not supported. The full Pro version is avaiable for $39.95 through the official Agnitum Affiliate Program.
