On Mar. 1 the Agnitum website and support close down.
Agnitum quit business and development. Outpost support and updates ended on January 9. You still got a chance to migrate
to Kaspersky Internet Security for free! The migration deadline has been extended up to Feb. 28, 2017. This is the last call!
Visit the migration page now to ensure continuous protection!

Tomorrow, Feb 28, Agnitum is closing its web site, email and this forum.

We, the staff of the forum, wish everyone who participated here very best. Thank you for playing a part. It's been fun while it lasted.

Thanks, good bye and see you around the internet!

Another decent firewall went down.

Comodo is the only survivor of the top 3 standalone FWs : Online Armor, Comodo FW and Outpost

Maybe it was right that they'd added more than the firewall to it. Sometimes we can only adapt even simply because many are not willing to.

I don't know the reasons of that but I can imagine.
A technology that gains a reference position of a sector such as IT security, tends to acquiring the competitors (you see Avast and AVG). And, in fact, it is difficult to prevent this happens, business is business.

You're forgetting that they have been abandoned / Discontinued other firewall/hips perhaps better than those cited: Malware Defender, System Safety Monitor, ProSecurity and EQSecure.

Bad news:(
I used it never
But i know people that were using outspot and they should migrate now
Now the best Firewall in the market is Comodo Firewall (in my opinion)

Yes I have used it in the past, I had a lifetime license. I loved it. Using CF (tweaked) at the moment.

I'm sorry that another referent disappears. :(

On the other hand, I do not agree with you, boring or not, we have ZoneAlarm, as well @kev216 said and we are not remembering PrivateFirewall, IMO, other great firewall that has said goodbye.

I have had those firewalls on many computers, since my XP years and whenever I installed an OS, I installed one of those options. My favorite was Online Armor Free, but I used Agnitum on numerous occasions.

Now, i feel old and sad as when I saw that in my neighborhood, the building of the billiards, where I played in my childhood and adolescence, now has become a restaurant of a well-known multinational. :(

Three excellent firewalls have fallen and there is no relay for them

Edit: Now i see @Av Gurus also spoke of PrivateFirewall

I will tell honestly , home users using computers at home won't need a FW. You have your NAT router to protect you. You need a software based FW if you are doing sensitive operations in a public network...which i don't recommend.
FWs were made originally to block unwanted inbound connections. With time outbound connections were added (since the rises of keyloggers, RAT, etc...).

Windows FW on Wn10 is good to protect you if are using the advanced settings, however it can be a real pain to beginners for creating rules. It is why you have GUI replacement made for it (Binisoft WFC, etc...) to detect & block outbound connections.

On the usefulness of a FW I agree with you, but on the part of Hips outpost must say it was really a very good product. I honestly do not understand the utility of acquiring it to make it disappear.
