Discussion in 'other anti-malware software' started by novirusthanks, Dec 17, 2017.
Developers of outstandingly good antimalware software will usually find purchasers of the fruits of their brilliance and hard work, if not for the original products then for incorporation of the essential technology into larger scale products already owned by the purchaser.
I think it would be a good idea if both OSA and SH came with predefined settings:
> low protection (no/very few FPs but lower level of protection)
> medium protection (recommended; few FPs, good balance between usability and protection)
> advanced/paranoid protection (lots of FPs possible but very high level of protection).
Works fine. Thanks
Please stop boot licking (makes the prices higher for people that don't have money trees growing in their back yard)
I understand your points and there are no problems.
A lot has changed in the upcoming version, many improvements, fixes and new features. There will be also an enterprise version that will allow admins to more easily manage OSA installed in multiple PCs. This just to say that we're doing all to make OSA a very solid product and also "future-proof", for example with the new variables/options available in the custom block rules (useful to write smarter rules to block future malware).
Good idea, that is in the todo list.
Great, thanks for confirming.
Very nice, thanks
I hope simplicity which is the beauty of OSA won't be lost in the new version.
How soon will this bad boy 4.0 be on the red carpet?
Reliable sources have informed me that the time Andreas spends on developing OSArmor & EXE Radar Pro shall NOT be deducted from his allotted life-span.
OK cool, so there are more people involved in your projects if I asumme correctly. And I also see that you're now offering products to bigger companies.
I understand this is perhaps a weird and uncomfortable subject, but to clarify it's not just about NoVirusThanks, I was just brainstorming a bit, and I was thinking if it makes sense to pay a yearly fee for software that is developed by "one man" companies. Yes I do want to support them, but like I said what if you can't reactivate the license because something happens to the developer(s), it would a pity.
Bigness of company is no guarantee of continued excellence. To all intents & purposes, Apple was a 1-man company -- its proactive effectiveness was not quite the same for quite a while after Steve Jobs passed. Microsoft wasn't its old self for quite some time after Bill Gates retired. VoodooShield would not be quite the same without the genius of Dan (may he live forever). Zemana became but a shell of its former excellence when a very few, but VERY key, personnel left it -- for whatever reasons.
Life happens 1 day at a time. "Today" is the only day that I own for certain. It is a gift. That's why it's called the "Present." I will always buy what I think & hope is the best available product at any given single point in time. If what I believe is the best product happens to be from a 1-man outfit, so be it -- I won' t take "pretty good" & I don't care how big the company is.
OSArmor (OSA) is the topic of this thread. OSA has given me & my family & friends excellent protection for a number of years. It is THE best stand-alone behavior blocker that I know of. Based on its proven record of excellence, I will surely buy a subscription when it becomes available. I would buy it whether it was produced by General Motors or IBM or the shaggy looking chap who sold me coffee at Starbucks this morning.
I installed OSA on 3/25/19 for the first time. When did it get out of testing and go stable. I see that i installed it one day after v1.4.3 was released.
History of version 1.4.3 ................
1- NVT published pre-release test 1 3/13/2019
2- NVT published pre-release test 2 3/17/2019
3- NVT published official release of 1.4.3 on 3/24/2019
Version 1.4.3, dated 3/24/2019, is available for download HERE. I eagerly await NVT's upcoming update of this security app.
I must have installed test 2, because minutes after the official release i asked if i could install over the top or uninstall and restart first. Test 2 must have had good comments, so i installed it instead of waiting.
This hasn't got anything to do with the excellence of the product, but my concern is about continuity.
LOL good one.
Update: we've finished to separate OSA into Home/Business/Enterprise and we've also completed the 30-days trial functionality, here is a screenshot:
OSA new version is now 100% complete, we'll run some last tests in these days.
If all goes well will share the download link, will keep you updated.
Well that's just cruel! Why say anything at all, and just release it when it's ready? Now I'll be holding my breath and hoping I don't pass out.
This is great news. Looking forward to it @novirusthanks
Hi, is this tested on Windows 2009 (19042.487)? Can you also share how much this is going to cost for a subscription?
The more info you can provide now, the better, maybe.
What happens if the 30-days trial expired?
Yes, here is a screenshot:
Subscription pricing will be shared on the next posts.
It will ask to activate the product.
OSArmor will have the LockDown option?
