I am, sad , like so many others but I've given up whining and crying.
I'm staying with Outpost Firewall Pro until they pull the plug on it and if I am still around (i'll be 82) I'll worry about it.
I see I am repeating myself.-jadinolf (January 24, 2016, 05:46 PM)
I am a long time user of Outpost Security Suite. Apart from the Antivirus part which I have turned off, it is still running fine as a very good firewall. Probably the best. So for me the good news is I can solve my problem quite easily. I have downloaded the Bitdefender Free Antivirus. With that and its excellent reputation and the excellent reputation of the Agnitum Outpost Firewall I am doing fine. If others out there can confirm this is working for them then there is a good solution. Until someone makes a better firewall then I am staying with the Outpost one. There is no reason for it to stop working. It doesn't need any maintenance. Its great. And so were the guys at Agnitum. Really dedicated to their product. People used to look at me strange when I tell them I use a Russian Firewall, lol. Probably the best people to make one. Anyway at the end of the day when you want to get out of a business like that and you have spent years developing and perfecting your security technology it is like cashing out of the casino or the investment one may have in a house. It just sits there and grows in value irrespective of the subscription income. I guess Agnitum felt it was the time to take a big bonus cheque. Good luck to them - they deserved it. I was well protected for many years. Respect to them.
