is this a joke ?
not the post, but the article in PcMag...
"Best Security suite", and they havenīt tested ALL ("big" names), just a few ?

anyway, most of them have useless firewalls, so itīs actually a good idea NOT to use a "Suite",
instead compose your own "Suite" by combining good Antivirus / Antimalware -programs with a good firewall.

take a look: http://www.matousec.com/projects/pro...ge/results.php

i have also tested firewalls myself, when i tested ESET it performed so bad that i couldnīt believe the results,
so i had to run the test a second time just to be sure, and oh yes, i got the same result the second time....

EDIT: i noticed that Online Armor is missing on Matousecīs list, which is most probably because there is now a new version of Online Armor that havenīt been tested yet with the new "148-test".

Online Armor had 99% last time i saw it on the list, so Comodo & Online Armor are a good choice,
and both are FREE....

Yes it is very interesting. I also notice many I have tried through the years. You never know from year to year who is the top dog. At the present I use Windows 7 firewall and I'm completely happy, all ports are stealth. Webroot with Spy Sweeper is my choice of anti virus at this time, once again I'm happy. I would like to see MSE with Windows 7 firewall amoung those tested.

@andsome...I don't know why PC Mag doesn't mention Eset products in their Anti-Virus articles. Probably because they did review version 4 of the security suite early last year but rated it pretty poorly. I don't use the suite but have used NOD32 for over 10 years and have never been infected (that's why I have refused to switch products) NOD32 has won more VB100 awards than any other product and consistently gets an A+ rating at AV Comparatives.

well the real reason Online Armor is missing is a bit murky... Online Armor temporarily disqualified

i say murky because emsisoft the current owners of OA has this to say

This listed Comodo Internet Security 5.0 as the best AV, but I have never heard of it and other AV test sites also don't list it.
Is Comodo AV a newcomer to the market, or is it just that no one ever uses it?

Also, anyone who hasn't read this I strongly recommend doing so as it is a very good report.

Seems we discussed this before.
Matoustec is not a firewall test though is it?
Its a HIPS test if I recall.


Comodo is pretty good, although has a downside.
Its probably most horrible firewall ever if the user isn't knowledgeable in security.

What I mean is, Since it actually doesnt make any smart decisions on its own, it leaves it up to the user to decide on everything.
Rather than just prompt on unknowns, or possible threats.

This obviously has advantages, as it locks everything down and the only way in or out is via user permission.
But, if the user is not that informed, they will often make the wrong desicion blocking even legitamate apps. and then wondering why things arent working properly.


Many will disagree, I know. But my view is simply this:
A Firewall should not only be able stealth all ports, but know the difference between whats good and possibly bad.
It should smart enough to allow legitamate things such as Microsoft apps and other well know,trusted vendors through without bothering me.

As well as know the difference between malicious Activities, and when to ask about things that seem suspicious or should not be accessing the internet.

Not just throw every single action (legitamate & suspicious) on me, the user, to make the decision.
