    Thanks, we'll be looking into this one.

    Does OOF support different policies for LAN connectivity and untrusted networks connectivity (for instance: we need Tivoli client access if a computer is connected to our corporate network, but not if a managed computer is directly connected to the internet)? I can't seem to find this info on the site.

    i was wondering if there was any significant difference between outpost office firewall and outpost pro. or is the difference just in price and target audience (buyer)?

    Is this an enterprise style product where the emphasis is on keeping bad stuff out, or one of the newer personal firewall products where the emphasis is on preventing outbound leaks by trojans that have been missed by AV's

    Just to summarise, Outpost Office Firewall is a product for installing, updating and maintaining Outpost across a network.

    Sort of... Corporate problem is that alerts from all kinds of tools lead to qustions by users. Imagine a few thousand users that call the helpdesk for AV alerts or firewall alerts. Or imagine that they don't call the helpdesk in the case of a local infection. Both scenario's are valid.
    First one is a cost matter. You don't want all kinds of helpdesk calls if they are not needed (signatures updated, file cleaned). Helpdesk calls are very expensive, especially if they start an incident management process with all overhead that applies to that, lets say $25 each...
    Second one is about security. Most users tend not to call the helpdesk for virus messages ('stupid user ' syndrome), but in a corporate environment you have to know all incidents and act on them if required. A central security console that receives all alerts, and maybe even analyzes them, is needed.

    For a corporate environment you need a corporate solution. Alerts and messages have to be managed centrally. Policies have to be managed centrally. Distribution better be managed centrally, but most tools already posess this functionality...
