Agnitum Outpost Personal Firewall

The Agnitum Outpost Personal Firewall combines the security features of personal firewalls like ZoneAlarm with ease and usability perfect for most novice PC users. Today I'll show you how to use it.

After a simple installation, the Agnitum firewall is up and ready to go. When you access any network function, such as email or a browser, the firewall presents a question dialog box asking whether or not you want to allow this transaction to go through. You can set it for once (this time only), never, or always for this application.

Other outstanding features include the ability to filter sites for inappropriate material and scan email for spam. It also acts like a mini antivirus program, preventing potentially dangerous email viruses or worms from infecting your machine. Add a simple plug-in and it will act as a pop-up killer, stopping banner and pop-up ads.
