    Hi All,

    Is Safe n Sec still being developed? How does it compare to other behavior blockers? How is their support? Is it worth buying?

    Cheers,
    Jeremy

    It still looks to be based on their website updates.
    Most examples of this style of product are fairly similar. Differences lies in the specific entries of the SSDT that are hooked and how they interact with the user on an alert event. The other differences include:
    • SnS is a subscription to use product (subscription expires and program is disabled). Most of the other behavior blockers are either one time only purchases or subscription maintenance (subscription provides for release upgrades during subscription period, any executable in your hands can be used in perpetuity).
    • Integrated rootkit scanner
    • Ability to get integrated AV scanner (added cost)
    Decent
    Like any other purchase, that's user context sensitive. What are you trying to achieve?

    Thanks for the reply.

    That's rather restrictive in terms of licensing though.

    Nothing specific. Just pondering. Like the idea of a smart behavior blocker being integrated with resident av. But I guess KAV, Panda and F-Secure have already done it.

    i see it,

    but i believe they are mistaken, are maybe stupid.

    but unless panda have changed their software this year, and mainly their TruPrevent, i really would not label it as a HIPS. *but something else.

    ie. if it cant query a simple dll injection file, it is no HIPS.
