    i need a isolation software.
    i like geswall,defensewall and safespace.
    geswall is paid (i dont like free version)
    safespace is free.
    but i can buy geswall, i dont think money :) security is important

    anyway,
    which is the better on last tests?
    i hear some test;
    killldisk, keylogger test, process manipulation or termination test etc.

    maybe you say gesswall score 100/ safespace score 50
    or gesswall pass this tests, safefpace fail.
    maybe opposite?

    can you help me?

    Re: shoult i buy geswall?

    Hi

    I think if you want to pay DefenseWall is currently the best choice.

    Defensewall HIPS was also my final choice.
    I think DW is the smartest choice, because DW limits the rights of a malware to the very bone in "untrusted" applications. That is IMO opinion safer than isolating a full functional malware in a sandbox.

    DW has also a wide range of "untrusted" applications.
    DW is also simple in usage and doesn't require complicated rules like in HIPS.
    And you can lock your data folders, while surfing on the internet, which is a very strong protection : no reading, no writing, no stealing.

    I'm not comparing, I just took the one that fits my poor knowledge, my philosophy and my personality.
    Another good malware killer is Anti-Executable, which is even more simple than DW. I use AE to protect me against killdisk, robodog, etc.
    AE kills immediately without asking questions, that's the way I like it.

    In my opinion, security wise all of them( GW, DW, SBIE, SS) are more or less same. Only difference is the features, smooth performance, support, ease of use, ur needs etc. So choose that suits you according to these criteria. Don,t worry for the security. All of them are pretty good indeed.

    Have a look here BTW.

    That should be enough for you. :) Let me repeat, don,t go on these tests. All are good.

    I agree with Aigle,

    There are the two policy sandboxes GeSWall and DefenseWall and two
    virtualisatioon sandboxes SBIE and SS, all four are good, with temporary advantages on each other over time.

    Hi

    Bufferzone Pro and ForceField are shareware but are also quite good.

    But I think for ease of use Defensewall and then GesWall is the best.

    They all defend against the worse threats. I tried GeSWall and DefenseWall personally against a lot of baddies (amongst them Killdisk), so I know from personal experience. When you are 'only normal user' try defensewall first. It is the easiest to use (like other members also confirmed)

    PS I am also only normal user (for instance not hanging upside down when typing this post) :doubt:

    well I have witnessed Geswall tested against some baddies and it held its ground.

    Only thing that bugs me about geswall is that my firefox crashes every time I try to "restart as non-isolated." I have to manually change the firefox setting in the geswall console if I need an non-isolated firefox.

    I posted on their support board last week and sent in an email ticket. I got an email back from him yesterday saying he couldn't reproduce the error and asked for some more info about my system.

    Keeping in mind the Earth is a sphere I'm not sure ! I know some nice people out there and they make a look of normal people, but I hate what they do when they visit WC. They do it in completely wrong direction ! :)
