Secure Your PC with Outpost Security Suite Pro

Yaara Lancet 16-01-2012

There’s nothing more important than our PC’s security. When it’s all said and done, if we don’t protect our computer properly, it soon fills up with all kinds of junk, not to mention the privacy concerns. There are many anti-virus applications, firewalls, ad blockers and spam filters around; and then there are complete security suites that do all that, and more, in one, big, happy package.


One of these security suites, which contains almost every possibly security aspect you can think of, is Outpost Security Suite Pro 7.5 (Windows). This comprehensive security software by Agnitum aims to take over your computer’s security, and do it all. It’s an anti-virus and a firewall, offers web control (site and ad blocking), a file and folder lock feature and an anti-spam filter (for several email clients). And that’s not even half of it.

This week, we are giving away 25 licenses for Outpost Security Suite Pro 7.5. Read on to find out more about Outpost Security Suite and for your own chance to win a copy!

For such an expansive suite, Outpost Security Suite is fairly easy to install and configure. The installation itself includes only several things you need to decide about. The first one, as with a lot of other installations, is whether to go for Simple mode or Expert mode.



Expert mode will give you more control over the components you’re installing, so if there’s a component you already know you don’t need (for example, the anti-spam feature is not very helpful for people who use Gmail in their browsers), go for Expert mode and choose your components.


Before installation begins, you can choose whether you want to automatically download the latest update along with installation, or do it later.


After installation, you’ll get to set some configurations. For example, in “Rule Autocreation“, you can specify if you want Outpost to automatically create rules for you about applications it knows, or whether you wish to create all the rules yourself.


Outpost will then enter quite a lengthy “configuring” process, but you can do other things while it’s at it.



Setting Up Scans, Updates & Rules

After restarting your computer, Outpost will start popping up questions about several applications it’s not sure about. It might pop these a lot more if you did not choose to have some automatic rules set.


These warnings will alert you of anything from “trying to modify a critical object” and “requesting an outbound connection” to “attempting to submit a DNS request”. You can use the checkmark at the bottom to try to minimize the number of alerts you get when you first load the program.

This is your main control screen. From here you can have a glimpse at how everything’s going, or look at specific aspects. Click the “Setting” button to start changing some basic configurations.



To set up scheduled scans, go to Anti-Malware->Schedule and Profiles. Here you can define what each scan does, create new scan profiles, and schedule each of them as you wish.

Go to General->Update to schedule regular updates. You can also choose to run them manually.


Almost every feature is Outpost is configurable, and you can choose a different security level for each. Here you can see the e-mail scanner. You can choose one of the pre-set protection levels, and customize the scanner’s behavior.


This is just the tip of the iceberg of what you can do with Outpost Security Suite Pro 7.5. A one-year license for 1 PC currently goes for $39.95, and is usually $64.95.
