    Wonder if this new security app will withstand the onslaught of Wilders testers.:)

    Due for release in a couple of days.

    Strong words. Something tells me that this app will pique an interest among our resident testers. I am curious to see the results. I'd throw my hat in (we could use some more noob testers) but am running linux exclusively for the moment.

    I hope the product is more professional than their website, which I find to be childish with that stupid looking robot thing. Just my opinion...

    OMG. Windows + CyberForceField > Linux and Mac.
    It looks like GreenBorder, but this time with green lines around data files instead of applications. This is definately a new approach. ;)

    Looks like a rules-based app.
    A "permanent solution"?

    At the moment I´m a bit skeptical, they act like they have developed some kind of revolutionary new tech, but it seems to be just another sandbox HIPS. At the moment I´m only impressed with Sandboxie (BufferZone does have some nice stuff) so I wonder what this tool has to offer me. :rolleyes:

    The site looks unprofessional and the claims are dubious at best. I'll pass on it.

    Haha,

    Looks like a lot like piramid hoax. When enough people join the community and they start to learn (with a belt like approach stolen from Six Sigma) and pay for their training, first starters are training them and earning money. On a certain moment the piramid collapses leaving the last to enter with a loss.

    Who is going to pay 300 aussie dollars for a security package?

    Hi, folks; if it is for file protection, seems to be the case. But.... Drive Sentry is FREE now, :D

    Nope, still cant find anywhere on their site where to download it, and no info on why it isnt released or any new release date.
    The only info we got on this software are big words :rolleyes: even I can promise alot so it looks exiting but it is the delivering part that matters.

    Hi Rasheed 187:

    From the website:

    QUOTE]The launch of CyberForceField Lite is tomorrow!!!![/QUOTE]

    That was June 13th. To quote John Fogerty, "You better learn young, tomorrow never comes". :rolleyes: . I also agree with your earlier post, their language is a bit over the top. While that may appeal to some, I think it only causes skepticism in this forum. Still. one never knows.

    Apparently there is no link to download the Lite version. You have to email them requesting the application. They are willing to spend 30 minutes with users via phone if you request help with the installation. I sent my request to admin@timesaversinternational.com

    I now have the Lite version of it installed. After using it for a while, my opinion on it is that it made my computer even more secure than what I was using before (CyberHawk) with no impact on my system's performance. It does require some tweaking in order to be able to not interfer with the programs you use. It also has a good logging system in place (doesn't log all of the registry/file activity, though) and also alerts you to when it detects a program trying to modify something.

    Here are some screenshots of it:

    Forget it. This one's a scam. Bait and switch really.

    Besides it offers nothing new that isn't already in ProSecurity, DriveSentry etc, plus it is really unstable to boot. Using it for 15 minutes and it periodically crashes a brand new VM. I then tested it on a clean spare machine, same problem.

    I wouldn't use it if you paid me.

    Clearly junk and overpriced. :mad:

    Lusher,

    I read their site and kind and posted my doubts.

    Zero3K,

    It looks like it protects the registry and files. When you use WinPooch does the same with this rules set (post #4)
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=175814&highlight=WinPooch

    To add outbound netconnect protection. Select all programs rule (the * header in stead of program name). Add a new filter for (Reason OD = network action, Param1 = IP adress in this context, Param2 is port in this context)
    - reason id Net::Connect
    - Param1 = Address (Any Value, *)
    - Param2 = Port (Any Value, *), Param3 = Protocol (Any Value, *).

    Set Reaction to ASK and REJECT, Verbosility to LOG (choose for new made rules after a prompt Reaction = Accept, Verbosility = Silent)

    So CyberHawk free + WinPooch = CyberHawk Pro with better registry defense (comparable to RegDefend)
