Emsisoft Online Armor / 188.8.131.526 / 10-17-2013

Firewall with choice of 3 modes:
Online Armor initially starts in standard mode, which is easy for anyone to manage. Standard mode doesn't focus on technical details, but rather on the simple question: Is a certain program allowed to access the Internet or not? Safe programs on our centrally maintained whitelist are automatically allowed access by the firewall. In advanced mode there are numerous options for experienced users. For example, it is possible to restrict access to only selected networks or to prevent access to websites from specific countries which are known for spreading malicious software. Online Armor's third mode is banking mode which stands for secure online banking.
Keyloggers are a type of malware that lurk invisibly in the background, waiting to capture keystrokes. Usually these keystrokes are then sent to a hacker - for example when entering a Paypal login, or the PIN of an online banking website. Online Armor protects the user by reporting any suspicious programs that try to record keyboard sequences. Our centrally maintained whitelist also includes programs that are known to be safe despite displaying keylogger-like behaviour and Online Armor will not bother the user with alerts for such programs.

NEW!Firewall with 3 operation modes:
Online Armor at first starts in standard mode, which is easy to handle for every user. It is not about technical intricacies, but simply about the question: Is a certain program allowed to access the Internet or not? A white list collects programs where our software ensures that they are secure, in which case the firewall automatically permits access. In expert mode there are many more options for experienced users. For example, it is possible to restrict access to a few chosen networks only and to prevent websites from specific countries which are known for spreading malicious software, from loading unwanted content. The third mode is banking mode which stands for secure online banking.
Keyloggers are a sort of malware waiting for key strokes invisibly in the background. Those keystrokes then are usually sent to a hacker - for example when entering a Paypal login, or the PIN of an online banking website. Online Armor works reliably here and reports all suspicious programs recording keyboard sequences. A permanently controlled whitelist collects the names of programs, which are assumed as safe despite such routines. Where programs are on the whitelist, Online Armor will not bother the user.
One silent method of sending users to faked Online banking pages is called DNS-Poisoning. Your own Internet Service Provider offers a DNS-Server, that will convert a text address entered in a browser to a numerical IP address. Clever cyber-criminals may redirect such requests to their computers where their own DNS-server is installed, which then leads the user to a phishing website. Online Armor Personal Firewall prevents that by rechecking all DNS requests with our own secure server. There will be an immediate alert, if the DNS-server used emits a different IP.
A lot of programs automatically start together with Windows - whether this is desirable or not. Online Armor lists all autostarters and allocates them a security status (secure, not secure, unknown). The user may then decide on his/her own whether these programs are allowed to start in the future or not. Online Armor again offers a whitelist containing many secure programs the user can safely trust.
The most important improvements in Emsisoft Online Armor 6.0:
Suitable for Windows 8: Emsisoft Online Armor now supports Microsoft's latest OS.
Easier installation: The lengthy initial scan launched by default after installation has been removed, as programs are analysed in real-time when they are started. Online Armor is therefore up and running quicker and you save valuable time.
Optimized performance: Efficient rules make Online Armor run noticeably faster. Ideal for use with Emsisoft Anti-Malware!
Fewer alerts: Due to the redesigned certificate check you will hardly receive any alerts despite HIPS technology, allowing you to work without being disturbed.
