    I'm pretty sure it went the way of Drive Sentry and others.

    To be honest with Comodo offering so much I can't see much room (in paid market) for other solutions besides some great names (Sandboxie and DefenseWall when Ilya makes a DWx64 version).

    Recap Comodo versus others

    Comodo - Bufferzone
    Sharing ability to auto-sandbox, BZ on signed+whitelisted trusted publishers, CIS6 on a trusted publisher base, or self controlled list as explained in this thread: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=339661

    Comodo - SafeSpace
    They also share the option to virtualise programs and exclude folders, only safespace offered it in the paid (the same way Bufferzone's virtualised mail programs)

    Comodo - Spyshelter's restricted mode/Appguard's/GeSWall protection
    Comodo's options Limited/Restricted/Untrusted are pre-set, only more granular than Spyshelter and with more options as AppGuard (pretecting against more attack vectors). When these Comodo pre-sets are combined with virtualisation it offers the strong combo of policy containment and virtualisation like GesWall (the redirect option in GeSwall).

    Comodo - Sandboxie
    Full virtualisation comparable to Sandboxie, only without the solid trackrecord and reputation of Sandboxie (Comodo has a lesser build quality and porer release quality reputation as Sandboxie), but since it is based on their forté (a FW with HIPS) I think the vast legion of Comodo Fanboys will post you-tube movies of glorious dragon moments (to show it is "as good" as the real thing).

    So indeed a swiss army knive IMO

    Glad it's an opinion. But is off topic. Stay on topic of this thread which is Safespace.

    They officially ceased development on it quite a while ago, but it worked nicely and might still work depending on the OS. Unfortunately I couldn't find a site that still has it up for download. Does anyone have a live link?
