Core Force

Description from the FileForum listing:

Quote
Core Force is the first community oriented security solution for personal computers. It is free and provides a comprehensive endpoint security solution for Windows 2000 and Windows XP systems.

The security framework provided by Core Force is leveraged by a community of security experts that share their security configurations for a growing list of programs. These security profiles can be downloaded by any user of Core Force from the community Web site and they're also completely open so that they can be peer-reviewed to minimize security hazards. The community approach to endpoint security also allows end-users who are not security experts to work in a secure environment.

Sounds good, but seems to need more work before it could deliver everything the copy promises...  :(

It's free, though. I just wonder why everybody adds all kinds of access control to their security solutions, instead of providing "just" a flexible rock-solid firewall...

I'm sure this is meant to be used alongside a firewall instead of as a substitute for one. Layered security is the trend right now with the idea being if The Bad Guys make it through one of your layers of defenses they probably won't be able to make it through all of your layers. Also, different programs have different strengths so ideally you would choose programs that built built off the strengths of one another while alleviating the weaknesses that Program A has by using Program B alongside it.

Layered security is the trend right now...
The trend I'm seeing is all-in-one security programs. Some are starting out as such, but existing niche vendors such as AV are also rapidly morphing their products in that direction. Since these next-generation programs hook into the kernel or ring-zero level, they tend to conflict with each other. It would appear that we are moving toward a scenario in which we have to choose a single product. Should be an interesting year for the security software industry.
