    Within Mamutu there is a processes tab. If you go into that tab and select a process and edit the properties you have the option to enable a feature called protect this application from process manipulations.

    Is this feature similar to a sandboxing or is it basically DEP just more restricted?

    No, it's not. It essentially prevents the most commonly used ways for processes to manipulate (terminate, suspend, inject code etc.) the protected process. If you have an application that is vital for your security but doesn't have some kind of kill protection itself you can make it protected by Mamutu to mitigate the most common termination vectors for example.

    All it does is prevent termination from malware?

    What programs would you recommend that that option is enabled with?

    If you are running WinPatrol, protecting it by Mamutu would be a good idea. IMO -- WinPat is a weak sister when it comes to self-protection.
