It's not dead, just breathing very slowly. We just accepted the last batch of users to this program. We are not going to accept any more users after this, as we are deciding the fate of this program this spring based on the feedback we receive.
That's rather disappointing to hear considering F-Secure promised not to kill the original Little Flocker when they bought it and rebranded it as XFENCE. We've all been very patient waiting for our favorite and most powerful security tool to finally come out of beta despite the fact that we will probably have to buy it again. To hear that it's "fate" is now being decided does not bode well for us, and I personally would not trust F-Secure if the first product experience I have with them is as a beta user receiving broken promises.
As some of you may have already noticed, we have released our first version of SAFE MAC beta product with a fully integrated XFENCE. This is the place where XFENCE will continue to grow, so if you want to be part of it's continuous development, subscribe to the SAFE beta program and try it out.
We did some extra work to support your existing XFENCE rule sets that you can import to the SAFE MAC, but please uninstall the standalone XFENCE before you install the SAFE MAC product. Those two cannot coexist in the same device.
Do you have a direct link to sign up for the SAFE MAC beta? What additional functionality does SAFE MAC have over just XFENCE? Does it phone home at all? If so is there a way to disable that? Can we just use the XFENCE portion of it?
