Windows 7: Online Armor sold to Emsisoft

Online Armor sold to Emsisoft

Mike Nash confirmed in his blog post today that he sold the popular software firewall, Online Armor, to Emsisoft.

On behalf of Emsisoft CEO, Christian Mairoll, Mike provided the following information for Online Armor customers:
Which kind of benefits does Emsisoft expect from the deal then? As part of a much larger development team (8 at Emsisoft so far), OA development can progress faster. Sharing knowledge internally is a very important factor for speed and quality of the produced software.
  • With the existing marketing and sales force at Emsisoft, we want to spread the name about OA much more. It's a great product, winning tests, but we need to tell everybody about it to make it grow.
  • On the long run, we have plans to create some kind of a suite product. It's gonna be a completely new product most likely. But things are not finally decided yet."
I wish Mike and Tall Emu success in the flexible CRM system, developed for corporate customers.

@Hackerman1 -- does this mean you'll switch to Online Armor?

hi !

i have already switched to OA !

i did it 32 days ago, after i discovered the security-problems with Comodo:
Security-problem with Comodo´s firewall & Defence+ !

i already had a license for OA, so it didnt´cost me anything...

btw. Tallemu & Emsisoft has cooperated long before Tallemu sold OA to Emsisoft.
OA++ is actually OA-premium & a-squared combined as a suite.

so this means that i have a very good combination, as i already had a-squared, i´m actually running OA++ now.
