    All my systems are 64 bit, and Bits Dejour is about to have a 50% off at Defense Wall but it's 32bit only.
    So the question is:
    When if ever will Defense Wall go 64bit? The sale at bits is only good for 1 year so no use to me if it's not going to be upgraded within that time span.

    Also do I need Defense Wall if I got Win7 64bit with Online Armor ++ and Mamutu?

    You really should do your homework.

    DefenseWall has a HIPS which would conflict with OA's own, probably with serious consequences.
    I would also not use Mamutu (Behaviour Blocker) with OA++. Even if you manage without issues it's a bit of an overkill.

    Granted.

    In that case I can use the DW lic on my other system, which albeit is also 64bit.

    I don't know when it will be exactly, but it shows up on their upcoming deals, so within a week.

    Ilya has stated quite a few times that unless he can offer the same protection with a 64 bit OS as he can with a 32 bit OS then there will be no DefenseWall x64.

    Bummer, oh well.
    I guess 32bit lic is still profitable enough but don't count on that beyond 2 years.

    Try Appguard for x64 instead Defensewall
    And take into account what @Jose_Lisbon said.

    These people aren't realistic. They can't expect people are using 32bit systems anymore. At least not the clever ones.

    I just can't belive it's nearly 2012 and there are still security products 32bit ONLY. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Lol, yes 32 bit is a fine system. But, fairly quickly we're moving beyond it. If you buy store-bought systems, 9 times out of 10, you're buying a 64 bit system. 8-10 Gb of memory is becoming common in these systems, processors are being made to take the most advantage of 64 bit systems. It will hurt DW eventually if they don't make the attempt. OA, SBIE, many more have pulled the trigger, and I'm certain they added more customers when they did.

    Companies like DW can get in on it now and stay in the game, or they can choose to be benched and watch from the side. Either way, the 64 bit world is coming, and it's coming quickly.

    For the average user there is little to no advantage to having a 64-bit system.

    I have to agree.
    Still happily running Xp home Sp3 32bit (just call me average)

    The only one (That would be Ilya Rabinovich) who could possibly answer this should pop in soon to do just that.

    The upcoming bitsdujour's offer seems to be for the HIPS-only edition. Is there a way to upgrade to the HIPS+Firewall version?

    Sandboxie's protection on 64bit isn't quite up to 32bit but they still released it. I don't see why the DW developer thinks that anything less than perfect is unacceptable.

    I respect that, of course, it's his product and I wouldn't tell him how to design or run it.

    I just personally would accept the level that Sandboxie runs.

    The advantage or lack thereof for average users doesn't matter. What matters is the systems they are buying, and, a very large and growing percentage of those are 64 bit. Since that is the case, there is a need to secure those systems. As I said before, security vendors and others can deal with it, or they can fall by the wayside. Technology doesn't sit around on its thumbs waiting for the "right time", neither should vendors.
