Outpost Security Suite Pro 9.1
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.

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

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
