    I've been asked to setup the security for a business, and had the following in mind:

    Use malware defender to completely limit/isolate as many programs as possible, while denying the execution of any new apps or those that have been white listed so to say.

    Have prev with safe online gaurding their browsing, along with noscript, adblock plus, and WOT (prevx will also be defending against malware)

    I dont see a need for a on demand antivirus since nothing will ever execute, and no need for a firewall either since their going to be behind a router.

    Will have then behind a sandbox as well.

    Custom tweaks will be applied (ie disabling autorun).



    What other suggestions do you guys have?

    I don't think that's necessary with Prevx SafeOnline.

    I recommend adding EMET, ClearCloud DNS, and SUMo or Secunia.

    Which sandbox?
    SpywareBlaster wouldn't hurt.

    I'd remove NoScript from the list. It might be too much trouble for general business users and is probably redundant if you're going to use some sort of sandboxing, as you say.

    I will be using sandboxie, and most likely behind open dns. Not sure yet, but, i forgot to mention the whole "ill be changing to a new dns server to filter out the baddies..." xD

    It all depends on the type of business, number of users, network topography, etc. Appguard alone should be enough but I'd also recommend a traditional AV; maybe a managed solution if you are to be maintaining it. OpenDNS would work great to provide content filtering, if you used a gateway AV and limited user accounts you should also be covered. MalwareDefender is a great program but way to intimidating for an average user. Sandboxie is also great and with a little training (and solid configuration) would be adequate. There are many different avenues to acheive what you are trying for.

    A good combination that I have found effective that may also serve you well is a good AV with a low false positive rate but decent detection and simple to understand prompts; combined with Appguard. What the AV misses AG will easily stop. In certain cases MSE is legal to use for businesses and AG is very affordable.

    This is what I used to believe, too.
    There have been sites that Prevx SafeOnline
    flagged as Green but they they were Not Green at all.
    (For obvious reasons, I cannot post these sites, here.)
    Keep Prevx SafeOnline BUT also keep the Free Key-Scrambler add-on for Firefox/IE.
    You never know...;)
