    Hi!

    Anybody using this? Is it a firewall?

    Features:

    Hackers can delete your data every time you are online.
    Protect yourself with the new Steganos Online Shield.

    In the event of danger, simply cut the Internet connection with one click.

    No program can come in or go out without your permission: You are thus always in control.

    Is your computer online while you are not there? No problem: you can be informed of averted attacks via SMS.

    If you want, your PC will be "invisible" - thanks to CMP
    message blocker.

    Thanks to precise protocols, you always have a full overview of all processes.

    Easy to use.

    Protect yourself against hacker attacks: Send an omission mail to the provider!

    Any product that attemps to market to newbies with hype instead of dicussing real issues that all firewalls are measured against is not for me.

    With no more information than I got from the home page, I would not defile my hard drive with such trash. I'd be afraid it might leave some maggots behind.
    But then again, it may be the best code ever written. He he.
    To answer your question, nope, and who knows?

    It is a commercial persional firewall which can be compared with the free ZoneAlarm version. Nothing more, nothing less. The rest is pure marketing hype.
