Computer security has become a major issue for today's computer user. Malware (malicious software, such as viruses, Trojans, spyware, and more) is spreading at ever increasing rates, and has created a "cat and mouse" game between criminals and security experts.

Online Armor's innovative Firewall is made to require an absolute minimum of user input, and will be automatically configured to allow normal internet traffic. The firewall has been extensively tested and proven to thwart all known methods of bypassing, to protect your private data. Spyware won't be able to slip by unnoticed.

Program protection allows you to control what programs may run or install on your computer and restrict potentially malicious behavior. Users will appreciate Online Armor's ability to recognize and allow programs known to be safe, while advanced users will enjoy the additional control that Online Armor allows. This feature also combines with the firewall by default so you don't have to authorize the same program twice.

Enhanced protection helps to ensure that Online Armor continues to protect your computer and your privacy, even if something malicious is not caught in time and attempts to bypass your computer's security.

Our RunSafer feature utilizes additional security built in to Windows that is not normally used. This restricts programs from accessing sensitive areas of the operating system.
