Leading Security Vendor is First to Deliver Fully-Functional Free Security Suite

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia, December 15, 2010 - The security experts at Agnitum, developers of the Outpost Pro security
product line, are pleased to announce the availability of Outpost Security
Suite Free 7.0, the first comprehensive security suite to protect Windows
users from the full range of cyberthreats at no charge.

"We believe users have a right to feel secure when they go online," said
Vitaly Yanko, Agnitum's Director for Marketing and Sales. "We also feel that
security should go beyond separate free firewalls, free anti-virus, and free
anti-spam. For those reasons, we made the groundbreaking decision to launch a
free version of our popular Outpost Security Suite Pro to give users 360
degrees of protection whenever they go online.

"However helpful on an individual basis, "point" products that address
separate aspects of everyday online activity fail to address a broad range of
web-borne security issues. Against this background, Outpost Security Suite
Free stands out as the first fully-functional, industry-certified all-in-one
security solution to be made available free of charge".

The new Outpost Security Suite Free 7.0 (OSS Free) brings ease-of-use and
transparency for non-expert users who want to feel protected online without
the expense and sometimes steep learning curve of a commercial product. Right
out of the box, OSS Free provides robust, easy-to-use protection with optimal
default settings to address web-borne threats including known and zero-day
viruses, spyware, hacker attacks and intrusions, spam, and more.

Outpost Security Suite Free builds on the cutting-edge technologies in
the commercial version of the suite. While it does not provide the depth of
configuration, automation and control offered by the commercial suite, OSS
Free provides comprehensive protection against the most prevalent threats in
today's online world. The product's acclaimed proactive protection, coupled
with efficient detection and disinfection, make OSS Free a great option for
web users everywhere.

Outpost Pro solutions have gained international recognition and received
many awards around the world. In particular, Outpost has consistently
registered top scores in VirusBulletin's VB100 and Proactive
Security Challenge, both widely-acknowledged centers of excellence for PC

Agnitum's 10+ years' experience in data protection and Internet security
are now available to all users, regardless of their willingness or ability to

Outpost Security Suite Free 7.0. Functionality

Reactive protection

360-degree anti-malware

Both anti-virus and anti-spyware functions are provided through the
universal anti-malware module, which ensures users can surf the web and share
files via USB drive or CD without the risk of infection. The on-access
monitor constantly watches for and instantly disinfects, quarantines, or
removes any malware objects found in key areas of the PC, while the on-demand
scanner lets users scan for and remove threats on hard disks, network
folders, DVDs, or external storage devices. Email attachments are checked in
real time as they leave or arrive, and any suspicious file can be moved to
the quarantine area for later review.

Faster, more intelligent scans

SmartScan ensures that only the modified portions of the file system are
scanned, avoiding repeat scans of files that have not changed since the last
scan. The fast and intelligent anti-malware engine does not impact overall
system performance and operate in the background while the PC is used for
other tasks.

Proactive protection and connection security

Preemptive threat protection

The anti-leak module provides the first line of defense against malicious
software by proactively controlling how programs behave and interact on a PC
and preventing security breaches. By analyzing threats and displaying
actionable alerts, Outpost Free blocks zero-day attacks and other
unauthorized activities, providing advanced protection against botnets,
rootkits, and inadvertent data disclosure.


Today's malware frequently seeks to shut down security software to make
its infection process easier. By incorporating solid tamper-proof protection
for all its components, Outpost makes it impossible for anyone except the
authorized user of the program to disable or shut down active protection.

Acclaimed personal firewall

The two-way firewall monitors inbound and outbound connections and
prevents local and remote unauthorized network access. It conceals access
ports, rendering the user's presence on the Internet invisible to hackers and
vulnerability probes.

Protection from spam

Outpost Security Suite Free's Bayesian anti-spam engine will keep inboxes
free of junk email. Users can train it to recognize and use their own
personal definition of spam, so it becomes more efficient and an even greater
time saver the longer it is used.

Convenience and Ease of Use

Automatic configuration

Rules for most programs that access the Internet are applied
automatically, relieving the user of the need to enter rules manually every
time a new application accesses the Internet or interacts with another

Hands-free updates

Whenever updates to the main anti-malware engine become available, they
will be automatically applied without the need for user participation
(excepting, of course, for any required system reboot). This ensures the
latest protection is always in place.

Auto-learning mode

When the user is sure all normal computer activity is safe, it makes
sense to activate the "autolearn" mode, which will suppress all security
alerts and notifications. During this time, the program is silently learning
what constitutes safe user behavior and typical tasks and policies, and will
apply this knowledge in the future to display fewer alerts.


Outpost Security Suite Free 7.0 has been designed to be fully compatible
with Windows 7, Vista (up to latest SP2), Windows XP (up to SP3), as well as
all previous 32-bit versions from Windows 2000 SP4 onwards and all 64-bit
Windows. The product will work smoothly on any PC with a 450 MHz or faster
CPU (x86-/x64-/multi-core), at least 256Mb RAM and 200 Mb hard disk space.
