neat. glad to see another product enhancing the built-in windows firewall. i wasn't a fan of the firewall implementation in the 2010/2011/2012 products. also happy that they're moving away from toolbar based browser protection.
Nice changes! Om looking forward testing this baby - should be lighter with boosted Windows firewall instead and the browser independency looks like a welcome addition to
Hmm very interesting. the two things I didnt like about f-secure seem are being addressed which is good.
I wonder how good the new firewall will be.
Indeed it's one of the lightest suite that I ever tested.
Very low I/O write footprint beside using numerous processes.
F-secure used to slowly made changes to their products in terms of ongoing evolution rather than revolution, but they definitively on right track.
I put much less attention to firewall part of product, as most of us are behind hardware firewalls, but I also happy that they give up with their own-house firewall, which has some flaws (like special need to create custom rules to allow file sharing - which for less technical users can be no-to go task)...
strongly recommend product for everyone to test. Solid as a rock so far (as most of betas from F-secure I must admit)
Tried the beta. Seems very stable. Like the new firewall approach and improvements to online security.
If now they could only get rid of the stupid launch pad and make it a easily accesive, unified user interface .. wow this suite would be perfect.
Also I read they will introduce a better system for validating serial code. Happend to me after reinstall of pc with f-secure 2012 i could not use my key anymore since i didn't uninstall f-secure.
Tried this out. Seems slow to boot. Also don't like the fact the processes can be terminated so easy. Other than that seems to run well.
I like the refinements in this beta.
The only thing that lets it down is the huge amount of space needed by bitdefender's engine.
I have always liked the fact that f-secure makes the best use of its own and third party technology.
There's no option to disable the auto-updates and after installation it kept downloading one update after other.
Disabled the connection and uninstalled it.
Motherroad - yeah, agree about the processes thing. This seems to always be an issue with F-Secure, (I remember their current firewall in the 2012 suite being disabled rather easily) Otherwise I really like this current beta--very smooth running.
