Re: F-Secure 2014 Internet Security Beta Test Firewall

I'm going to have to give up with this Comodo test.  For some reason, DeepGuard keeps popping up upon launching, and during the test, even though I allow the application each time, and the tests won't complete.  I wonder if this is a bug in itself, DeepGuard not 'remembering' to allow an application?  I seem to recall, there used to be a tick box for it to remember the answer given (Allow / Deny), but this doesn't seem to be there now.

 

I did the Shields Up! tests the other day, and FSIS passed all with flying colours.  Are there any other firewall tests I can do, instead of the Comodo one?

Simon,

 

Do me a favour, just submit the reports to F-secure.

 

Regardless what results you get while Beta Testing the F-Secure Internet Security 2014 with Comodo Leaktest.

 

So that they know what to do.

Well... 

 

At least I already give you all the steps and tricks to do BETA TESTING  the F-Secure 2014 Internet Security.

 

You can google search and do the Malware Domain List.

 

And test their software protection.

 

See if this antivirus software detects every thing.

Well,

 

You've got BETA TEST the browsers. See if they crashes. Or having Compatibility issues.

 

You've got to test Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, IE and Opera.

 

Be sure that testing all browsers must be using the latest up to date version.

 

 

Did anyone here BETA TESTING with Windows 8.1 Preview????

I have indeed submitted the reports to the Beta team, and have had a response, in relation to the Comodo test:

"How reviewers do these tests is that if the product prompts, they always click "Deny". So to have comparable results, that's what you should do for the DeepGuard prompts."

So, that seems to suggest that one should indeed Deny the Comodo app with DeepGuard.

Re: F-Secure 2014 Internet Security Beta Test Firewall

can we trust windows inbuilt firewall. does microsoft update there in built firewall. Also configuring it is not that easy.

It would be better if F-secure provide there own firewall.

Re: F-Secure 2014 Internet Security Beta Test Firewall

It has been argued to me that since the advent of broadband, and modern routers, a software firewall is less essential than before, as the router itself contains a firewall. Personally, I've always preferred to have both, but certainly the Windows Firewall in XP isn't brilliant, as it only monitors incoming connections. I guess that's where DeepGuard comes in. Not sure if later versions of Windows have a better firewall.

F secure must bring up there own firewall together with an intrusion detection prevention system.
