    At the minimum, it appears to be in a coma. :D

    I switched to bufferzone because of this but I am about to test LeakWall Lite. They need to kick up support again.

    It's not dead; it's a myth like Sasquatch who I believe may be writing some code for it. I hear it will be released in Area 51 first also. :cautious:

    That is why I quit using it and switched to DefenseWall. The developers just don't seem to be committed to it.

    I have not used it in a long time. I wonder if it would be worth wild for some company like Eset to purchase. Hmm..

    Doesn't Geswall act as a sandbox? I don't know much about it. I tried it several years ago. I got so many BSOD's from it i never gave it another chance. If the bugs have been ironed out, and it's stable now then maybe Eset could add it to their security suite since most security suites are adopting a sandbox.

    If Geswall is no longer being developed then Eset may want to act on it before another company comes along, and scoops it up! Webroot may also want to look at purchasing it. That is if it's good software. I will give it a try when i get back to see what I think about it.

    Not really because they would add it to their products and the standalone app would be dead :p

    True. The problem of GesWall is the same that lead many excellent HIPS - as SSM - to the death: the common users ignore the existence and the great benefit of similar programs, and also if they know them, they are obsessively worried to have to " study " and " learn " to use them. :(

    They are not dead. Heard from them 2 weeks ago. Geswall will be combined with Leakwall for a new product, and it is slated sometime this year. Actually sooner then later.

    GentleSecurity is taken over by BeyondTrust.

    http://www.scmagazineuk.com/beyondt...rporate-dlp-into-product-line/article/208810/

    I am using their free PowerBroker to evade UAC prompts and to run internet facing aps as a LUA (just the other way around the software is intended :D ). This might provide new options for GeSWall and PowerBroker to emerge into a powerfull policy management tool. So who knows GeSWall maybe is not dead (yet)

    Maybe not entirely dead, but probably dead as we know it. They didn't buy GentleSecurity for GesWall, so are unlikely to continue it in its current form, if at all.
