    Comodo, Emsisoft and not only them offer strong HIPS x64.

    Why can't Softsphere?

    maybe because it is a one man Show just like Sandboxie was.

    If there was a 64bit Version of Defensewall I would certainly use it.;)

    Too bad that I can not try the new version.
    Since I have switched to x64 platform I cannot use DW so this year I will not renew my license :(

    It must be near impossible to come up with a 64 bit version of DefenseWall that provides adequate protection or Ilya would have done it by now. He's a very smart dude.

    Too bad. DefenseWall is a great product, and I used it for years. But, I'm running 64 bit now so I had to leave it behind.

    I'm sure he sees the writing on the wall. Everything is going 64 bit now a days.

    Later...

    Very true,for whatever reason it must be extremely difficult to reach Ilya's satisfaction in 64bit.It's a real shame since it means the clock is ticking on the future of DW.

    At least he is honest about it and does not try to deceive potential customers, by serving up some half-cooked product that gives you the delusive impression of control with its shower of pop-ups, when in truth many parts of the operating system are not even monitored, so in the end you are just allowing benign activities, yet are ultimately unsure, should something really elaborate come through one of those unmonitored gateways...

    Isn't DW and GesWall a lot alike?

    But it's not maintained and the company is sold.

    DW with all the respect is a dead product who come to its end since its developer (ilya) decide NOT to make any x64 soon....


    waste of time talking on that software anyway.

    One very respective anti-virus company's manager just found recently, with my little help, that their anti-virus can't provide same protection level at 64 bit Windows platforms (which was very disheartening surprise for this person). Have you ever heard from any anti-virus company any statements like "on 64 bit Windows our anti-virus do less protection that on 32-bit ones"? From what I can remember now, only Kaspersky Lab and Ronen Tzur were stating that their sandboxes are weaker on 64 bit Windows, which is true and which is bad for end-users because malware authors have more ways to infect computers and they don't care why exactly security vendors can't protect their users in full effect.

    So, the only way out for all the security industry is to make MS top management to do something with PatchGuard or to add additional filtering. I really hope for cooperation of all the security vendors to allow us to protect our users from malware on 64 bit Windows.

    Far, far from dead, demoneye....especially with XP coming to an end soon.

    Many, especially myself, have older Core2 Duo [E8400] machinery for every day use that it makes no sense to convert to x64bit Win 7 in the immediate future.

    I'll be converting to Win7 x32bit next month and continue to enjoy DefenseWall combined with EAM for a few more years yet.

    Also, in Australia we are not yet seeing government recycled second generation Intel i3's and i5's [Sandy Bridge] unlike in the USA. So, those who prefer / afford to buy 2nd hand machinery [C2D and 1st generation / Nehalems] are better served by DefenseWall for every day use.

    Special people who need multicore machinery - say for graphic design using Blender - are better served elsewhere, of course.

    cheers,
    feandur

    Seems like the malware authors don't have a problem with "patchguard". More of a reason for M$ to start working with security vendors...
