    Am I crazy, or does this appear to be a sort of re-branded Outpost?

    Please see Lavasoft Launches Leading Personal Firewall Solution - Lavasoft have licensed a version of Outpost from Agnitum with just the Attack Detection plugin (the full version includes Active Content, Ads, Anti-Spyware, Attachment Quarantine, Content and DNS Cache plugins).

    Looking at it , it is obviously Outpost . So P2K . You are saying it only has the attack detection ? None of the other features ? I hope not cause WOW . If it does , seems that would be an EXCELLENT buy .

    According to information I've received from Agnitum, only the Attack Detection plugin is included in Lavasoft's version and the screenshot above does seem to confirm it (if you squint hard enough...).

    From the Lavasoft website:
    It seems like the have read the discussion here at Wilders, see: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=95242
    about the Anti malware and about Emsisoft comparing these products.

    It is a logical decision, and 'comprehensive security suite' is what the customers want.

    We had a poll here at Wilders some time back and this is what we learned about a preference for a "comprehensive security suite."

    Unless I am missing something, this is the same trial version that you have to purchase when trial ends that is available on the Lavasoft website....

    Right you are! Free for awhile and optional to purchase afterwards. Otherwise no functionality afterwards. Only reasonable, don't you think?

    Hi Q-section, you wrote:
    You are totally correct on this, but that is the difference between active security forum posters and end-users.

    As you know the marketing strategy for most Anti-Malware/security companies is based on the last group.

    And of course specialists etc. will prefer easy stackable secuity products
    with no overlap so that they can build their on security system,
    on a layered method, like they/we did in the past.
    Picking the best of the best for each layer.

    But as discussed earlier, that time is past.

    For me i also think this is sad, but history proofs that end-users
    don't always choose the best software and we can see what the results are, every day now.

    Have you seen the new Kasperky KIS2006 Beta?
    Or the new NOD32 or Steganos Security Suite
    or A2 or Norton/Mcafee Internet Security?
    and even Adaware adding a firewall etc. etc.
    TDS-3 (trojan Specific) end of life
    etc. etc.

    And what i hear from my customers who are not interrested in all this,
    they just don't want to have their Windows system infected.
    And buy 1 product (although it is perhaps even more expensive)

    For me this for me is proof that end-users and those companies
    have other ideas then we (me included)

    We can see where this is going to.

    At the moment i am testing SecureWall a brandnew Firewall-only Beta.
    easy-stackable, but i heared/know that it is going to be joined with a
    Anonymous-surfing prog....

    So 'one' can see where this is going to..

    tuatara - We believe you are correct in your assessment. Hopefully with programmes like ProcessGuard (and perhaps others) we can have a good overwatch programme for our primary security solutions.

    It's probably worth noting that you can get the full version of Outpost (with its anti-spyware plugin) for less ($23.95 at time of posting). See the Outpost forum Outpost Pro 3.0 Discount thread for details.
