Level 1
  • Removed Comodo. Cylance, OSA and SH can handle themselves just fine. Not to mention, Comodo is so buggy it's more likely to increase the attack vector.
  • More rules for AppLocker and Windows Firewall to reduce the attack vector.

I've tried out Forticlient(web filter only) with this config and I've had nothing but issues. It regularly broke my connection entirely, messed with my vpn, blocked Cylance web access and caused ridiculous amounts of cpu usage. Same issues upon reinstall. Must be something from a recent update because I've used it in the past just fine.
I really enjoyed Heimdal last time I used the trial so I'll probably pick up a license for it and use that.


Level 1
  • Removed OsArmor and Cylance. I really did like this pairing but I could never feel fully protected knowing the consumer version of Cylance is missing critically important features.
  • Added Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud(With Firewall at Only Outbound & Trusted App). Very light and very strong.

Black Wings

Level 3
Arch is a great distro, but I, who am not an expert, started with Manjaro. When I have removed a partition, either Windows or Linux, I always end up missing the deleted system. I think a Dual Boot is a great option
