Comodos FREE firewall at 1st place on Matousec !

hi !

Comodoīs FREE firewall at 1st place on Matousecīs firewalltest, with a 100% score !:

Results and comments - www.matousec.com

Comodoīs firewall works with Windows 7, but the test was done on Windows XP Service Pack 3, so i donīt know how good it will be on Windows 7.

Word around Comodo's forums is that the 100% score was achieved using both the Firewall and Defense+ (Comodo's HIPS component).

Does Defense+ require setting up or does it run in the background during normal running?

hi !

both the firewall & defence+ can be used in "Training mode".

Comodo suggests that you run it for a few days / 1 week in "Training-mode" so it learns what you "normal" programs are.

then you can switch to fx. "Safe-mode", then every time some "new" program starts you have to answer if it should be allowed or blocked.

take a look at Comodoīs website, there is a lot of info there.

That's weird, there was another round up not long ago at all that put Comodo at 3 or 4, behind Online Armor and PCTools.

hi !

"weird" ?

Comodo released a new updated (better) version...

take a look at Matousecīs archived (older) tests,
fx. kaspersky is a long way down, but now with KIS 2010 they got better.

Is there any other company that performs tests on firewalls?

COMODO Internet security offers more protection than ANY other security suit EVER created:
Firewall: Amazing firewall. Blows away every other firewall out their. 100% product score is just simply amazing.
Defense+. Learn to use it and it will be non-annoying, rock-solid protection from EVERY KNOWN AND UNKNOWN VIRUS and its NOT annoying if configured right!
AntiVirus: Great, detected tones of stuff avast! dident on my aunt's computer. Fast, simple easy. 3-5 updates a day. Scanning 69Gb's of data takes 20 minutes.

RAM usage: 7-15MB

I'm not at ALL surprised that COMODO has achieved this. May switch from ESET to COMODO.

COMODO Supports windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit, along with vista and XP

While comodo is well known you have to be careful about the source.

This quote was at comodo's request so it would make sense that they would come out on top.

Per its vendor's request, we have tested the latest version of Comodo Internet Security in Proactive Security Challenge. As the first product, Comodo Internet Security reached the perfect score against all 84 tests in the testing suite. Congratulations!

Hummmm... I don't read it the same way. It looked to me like Comodo requested their product be tested, it was, and it passed.

I'm not clear on how their request to be tested could be interpreted as influencing the results.
