Apart from having a good Antivirus solution on your system, you need a good firewall solution too on your system to make the protection almost perfect. Online Armor Premium is a great firewall solution if you are looking for a commercial firewall to complement your existing Antivirus solution.
If you use online banking, buy things online, send and receive emails or just browse the internet then you’re open to serious threats that your Antivirus Software just wasn’t designed to stop. That’s where Online Armor’s Personal Firewall comes in.
As many of you may be aware that Online Armor Firewall offers a free version too with some limited features. The additional features that are being offered in paid version apart from the technical support, are:
- Online Banking Mode
- Advanced Mode
- Import/Export Settings
- DNS Spoofing Protection
When you are using the Banking mode feature, then your system can only access self-authorized online banking pages, while no other homepages, including phishing pages, can be accessed. Also, it provides three types of operational modes i.e Standard, Expert and Bank Mode. Standard mode is suitable for majority of the users and very few geeky guys will need to play with Expert Mode. Bank Mode as we said earlier can be used while you are doing Banking transactions online and you want to be safe fully.
We had reviewed Online Armor last year too and one of the issues was too many popups asking the user to provide permission or block the applications which even included most common applications. Looks like OA guys had worked on this aspect and hence with the latest version, there were almost negligible popups and popups only came if the application which we are running are not the common ones. It can be a big difference for novice users as majority of users are not aware of every application that is running on your Windows Operating system.
