What are the top competitors for the Process Guard?
Ghost Security suite
I recommend prevx,it's better for beginner
antihook would be another competitor but i dont know how development is going if at all.
There is a private beta out of version 3 which will have a limited free version and a paid full version.
Hm....How about OnlineArmor and Safe'n'Sec? Haven't used Safe'n'Sec before, but I have gone through the user manual. It seems the coverage of Safe'n'Sec is quite good, although the activation method is not quite good.
Is SnoopFree the same kind of application?
I used SnS for an extended time. It's a decent application. If you take a look at the system calls hooked, they missed a couple of minor ones that really could have been filtered. Not critical ones mind you.
It was generally quite stable in use. The only operational issue I really ran into, and it was a very infrequent one, was when SnS lost seemingly lost track of the active session console and issued an alert to an inactive session/window, at that point the system effectively locked. There were a very limited number of instances that caused this. It might be resolved at this point.
I like quiet in these types of applications and have been running Prevx for a bit. It is very quiet and seems quite effective. OA is as well. I'd recommend looking at both if you're looking in this direction.
As with many applications families, there are a number of competing choices that offer similar overall performance. Selection is often driven by secondary factors (flexibility, need to self-configure, alert frequency, basic approach, compatibility with other apps)...., in other words, run the trials and make your choices based on the outcome of that experience.
Neoava Guard. I saw a part of the features of the new Beta Debug version which is coming up this month i think. Very Powerfull.
Thanks for the information about SnS!!!
snoopfree is only for catching keyloggers. nothing less nothing more.
PrevX1 is cool.
I use Online Armor due to its performance and outstanding support, but what works great on one machine might not do the same on yours.
Thanks for the replies,
I tried SnS but it was freezing my PC and for me it is quite offensive asking too many questions.
Do you think there are some standard features we all should expect from this kind of software? As far as I can see all this tools can be taken as sandboxes, right?
PG and it competitors are not of the sandbox type HIPS.
sandboxes would includes programs like defencewall, geswall, sandboxie, and bufferzone.
I had written a small security program to perform some similar actions to ProcessGuard and RegDefend and it runs perfectly on Win2k, however on WinXP something keeps trying to terminate any process once it reaches the hook. Anyone have any idea what this could be? Not sure where to ask this kind of question
This is a security forum so I doubt you will find that advanced kernel level programming advice here.
And even if programmers of some of the products yours will compete with could answer your question, why would they?
Maybe try some kernel programming forums, or MSDN.
