Outpost Firewall Pro Review
One positive thing about the program is that it is easy on computer resources. This means that it does not eat up much of your RAM, which slows down the computer’s performance. Many security programs often negatively affect every day computing because they require too much RAM and resources while they run in the background. Even if the computer has less than 1GB of RAM, Outpost Firewall Pro is barely noticeable while it runs in the background.
Outpost Firewall Pro checks viruses and other threats real time, which means that it effectively monitors the computer by checking even the sensitive system areas. It also checks any process that asks for network access. You have the option to do a quick, full or custom scan any time you need to. A quick scan takes only 15 minutes while a full scan takes a full 20 minutes. Compared to other similar software, however, it relatively performs better because full scans usually take more than 20 minutes to complete.
