Trying out Faronics AE with everything else in my sig, but wonder if it's overkill.
No wondering, I agree it is overkill
Seems like a cool program,but I figured it was a waste of using it,eespecially with defensewall.
It is something of an either/or proposition depending upon the granularity of control desired, nature of control, and fluidity of the program base on the system.
If something did get by DefenseWall the AE program may catch it. It doesn't duplicate DW so I don't see it as overkill.
I see it as overkill as you are using Returnil, which I thought it had an anti-executable function. One thing for sure, it has virtually no impact on system resources, and the new version is very versatile compared to version 2.
Yup, I remembered Returnil had an anti-executable function,soon after I installed Faronics AE
Since then,I've uninstalled Faronics AE and using the anti-executable function in Returnil.
because the 2 cover different areas I don't think that using the 2 are over kill.
AE prevents unknown things from running in the first place.
Defensewall controls the behavior of things that are allowed to run.
