ULAV fresh news(Banking Protection)

Hi all!

 

This afternoon we released an update to Ultralight that enables a new feature: Banking Protection.

 

This is how it works. Our product will display a dialog when you arrive at an online banking site. Presence of this dialog indicates that a secure session has been activated. While active, this session prevents network connections from your computer to sites other than the online banking site. Once you are done with your banking activities you can end the session by interacting with the dialog.

 

You can disable the feature from the main UI by clicking the "Disable Banking Protection" button in any banking protection related event.

 

This update also fixes a few minor UI bugs. We plan to make more UI changes down the road.

 

Please let us know what you think of this new feature!

 

Thanks!

Re: ULAV fresh news(Banking Protection)

Hello,

 

With second update... Banking Protection start be work with my experience too.

But a little be strange design around "allow URL'. Or it's not work, or it's not work "right now"... or it's work just partly about something.

Also a little be strange about "another PID" for browser. Or it's ignored (for statistics) or it's normally goes to blocked connection (for statistics-informaiton too).

 

Also...

"from your computer to sites other than the online banking site"

 

Does it include "connections" under browser? Or there same design with F-Secure IS/FS Protection, where allowed connection for safe sites (with browser-use or maybe with any design of connection).

Such as.. not sure.. that something as example / ff .fi / will be page.. which related about online banking.

Hello,

 

I think it is impotant to allow printing during the e-banking session, even if the printer is Wifi or ethernet connected.

 

It should also be possible to work with 2 or 3 e-banking sites simultaneously. I mean user moves a part of his/her funds from High Hidden Costs Bank to Minimal Interests Paid Bank, online. He / she should be able to see the money depart, then arrive without having to shuffle the Banking Protection off and on.

Re: ULAV fresh news(Banking Protection)

I got a bunch of websites in banking protection and they were from the bank. I allowed them all but still unable to connect. Something about a certificate problem. Also windows security is telling me no AV is installed. Is this normal?

Re: ULAV fresh news(Banking Protection)

Could somebody who runs Windows 10 build 10074 confirm that ULAV makes spartan crash or it is just on my pc?

Hi!

 

Sorry for the radio silence. We have been working on a bunch of under-the-hood changes in ULAV, and just pushed out a largeish update. The update included bug fixes and compatibility for Windows 10.

 

Right now, we're working on getting a 32-bit version of the product ready, and this has been taking up a lot of our time.

 

Given that summer is almost upon us, things might slow down a bit, but rest assured, we're still hard at work on ULAV. We have a fairly long backlog of features we're planning on adding and hope to get to them in the autumn. A lot of what we'll be doing is working on the cloud scanning end-to-end service in order to improve performance and detection capabilities in ULAV.

 

Part of the point of ULAV is to provide protection to the user's system as invisibly as possible, and hence most of our updates deal with protection improvements which are not visible as UI changes.

 

Bottom line: ULAV is far from dead :)
