Outpost Security Suite Pro 9.3
Keep malware locked out of your PC

Outpost Security Suite Pro is a comprehensive collection of tools with everything you need to keep your PC and data safe from attack.

Protection starts with the suite's antivirus engine, which keeps a close eye on every file you access, detecting and removing potential threats before they have a chance to cause and harm.

You also get in-depth behavioural analysis, as the suite monitors your applications looking for malware-like activity. If something tries to modify your Windows logon settings, your shell extensions, Internet Explorer plugins, Windows startup programs or other key system areas then you'll be alerted immediately. And that means Outpost Security Suite Pro is able to block even brand new, previously undiscovered malware.

Browsing protection is less noticeable than in some of the competition: there's no extra browser toolbar, no warning icons attached to search engine results. Outpost Security Suite Pro will prevent you accessing known phishing or malware sites, though, and useful browser-based extras include a very effective ad-blocker.

Elsewhere a powerful, flexible firewall blocks hacker attacks, and monitors your programs for attempts to make unauthorised internet connections. Known safe programs like Internet Explorer are allowed online without question, but others may raise alerts, and these can be a little complicated to understand.

Other features include a competent spam filter, which monitors POP3, SMTP and IMAP traffic for incoming junk. An ID Blocker prevents personal information like addresses or phone numbers from leaving your PC. And the File and Folder Lock protects confidential data from unauthorised access by malware, or other users.

What's new in v9.3? See the changelog for more info.

Verdict:

Outpost Security Suite Pro doesn't have quite as many features as some of the competition, and it can occasionally seem a little intimidating to novice users. The core functionality is good, though, and its current low price looks like good value for money to us

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
