||There are three distinctive points that characterize what Outpost Firewall Free really is. First, it's a free product - you essentially download it, install and use, free of charge, no time limitations. Second, it's a better and more robust solution to Windows firewall - the latter lacks outbound filtering at default settings and is clumsy software compared to Outpost Firewall Free. Lastly, it has many advanced features that can surpass even commercial offerings, namely, proactive protection that defends against unknown malware by controlling installed applications' activity; illegal termination prevention capabilities; usability aid tools that automatically assign correct policies for most widely-used applications; and a real-time network statistics monitor. Outpost Firewall Free is based on the award-winning technology utilized in more advanced Agnitum products and is a good starting point to explore the Internet in a safe manner.
