DefenseWall wins when your anti-virus fails. Isolate good from evil!

DefenseWall Personal Firewall - the world's first sandboxing-style personal firewall solution
  • No learning modes (as seen with firewall and HIPS programs).
  • Mininimal popups.
  • Compatible with third-party security software and programs.
  • No need to configure ports and sockets.
  • No application checksum re-calculations.
Average users find it difficult to setup and use your typical firewall and security program. For most average users, program popups and questions are confusing. There is always the chance a user will make the wrong choice and allow malware to cause damage to their system.

DefenseWall Personal Firewall is a different kind of security program. You won't even notice it's installed and providing the highest firewall and system protection.

DefenseWall HIPS (Host-based Intrusion Prevention System) is based on a sandboxing approach that uses rights restrictions and partial virtualization. It now comes with an integrated firewall. What this means in simple terms is that malicious files will not have the 'rights' to perform any unwanted changes to your system or be able to make any unwanted connections.

Malware stems from various sources such as internet browsers, usb flash drives, e-mail, multimedia clients, IM, IRC, P2P, and VoIP. All of these programs are automatically marked by DefenseWall HIPS as "untrusted". If malware attempts to install on your system via an "untrusted" program, DefenseWall's inbuilt restrictions (HIPS) will prevent your system from becoming infected. And if malware tries to steal your information such as financial and banking passwords through an "untrusted" program, the Personal Firewall component will stop malware cold from calling home.

And the best part is, DefenseWall protects you right out of the box. For more detailed information, see technical part below.

Technical section:
In the "trusted/untrusted" terms, Inbound Firewall protection of DefenseWall works as follows: it considers a listening port of a trusted process as a potential source of attack and therefore blocks it. Only "untrusted" processes are allowed to get connected outside. In case of an inbound attack, an attacker is routed to the sandbox. In the corporate environment, DefenseWall automatically opens ports 445, 136, 137, 138, and 139. However, the untrusted processes can't connect to these ports. All of this minimizes potential harm from the malicous code being spread by exploits. If you have a HTTP/FTP/SMTP/proxy server, they should be added to the untrusted applications list as a potential source for vulnerability exploitation and thus a source of infection.

Testimonials:
"Although I'm not overly thrilled with "limited emulation" products in general, yours did better than the average and I was impressed"- Roger A. Grimes, Security Adviser, InfoWorld.


"DefenseWall HIPS is truly an engineering genius. I am particularly pleased that it includes removable media network resources. I just purchased a copy after testing it for a day, and have so much confidence in it that I removed the real-time AV and now only use an on-demand malware scanner. This is the way of future. Michael J. Sharp, France."
"Excellent software. Very simple, easy to use, and elegant. I forget it's even there, yet it offers greater protection than any anti-virus and anti-spyware scanner can provide on their own. A must-have for anyone that wants or needs something to set-and-forget. - A.B. USA"

"I have been using DefenseWall almost since its conception and the protection it affords is great. Easy to install, setup and use and support is very responsive as well. Chris W., USA"

"DefenseWall is a very powerful and unobtrusive approach to protecting your computer from malware. Todd, USA"

DefenseWall HIPS (Host Intrusion Prevention System) is the simplest and easiest way to protect yourself from malicious software (spyware, botnets, adware, keyloggers, rootkits, etc.) and identification theft, that can not be stopped by your anti-virus and anti-spyware programs, when you surf the Internet! Using the next generation proactive protection technologies, sandboxing and virtualization, DefenseWall HIPS helps you achieve a maximum level of protection against malicious software, while not demanding any special knowledge or ongoing online signature updates. No signatures, no popup windows, no false positives. It is just reliable and transparent protection, easy to use and strong.

DefenseWall HIPS divides all applications into 'Trusted' and 'Untrusted' groups. Untrusted applications are launched with limited rights to modification of critical system parameters, and only in the virtual zone that is specially allocated for them, thus separating them from trusted applications. In the case of penetration by malicious software via one of the untrusted applications (web browsers etc), it cannot harm your system and may be closed with just one click! With DefenseWall HIPS, Internet surfing has never been so simple, safe and easy.

With new innovative "resource protection" functionality, DefenseWall HIPS will allow you to protect your sensitive data (e-mails, passwords, IM chat logs, games accounts, etc) against identity theft malware in a simple and intuitive way. Most known applications are already within the pre-defined list. I have taken the liberty to make some changes and corrections.

Why do I need HIPS if I already have an anti-virus and firewall?
Firewalls control your network activity, antivirus protects you only from known malicious modules. But their writers modify those modules so quickly, that anti-viruses are unable to detect them untill you will be infected with it. That is why you need a HIPS solution- it protects you from all types of malicious software (malware), known and unknown, with no signatures need, proactive way.

Do I need DefenseWall HIPS if I work under limited-user account?
Yes, you do! It is not enough to work under limited-user account to be really protected from malware/virus threats. It won't protect you against passwords and game accounts hijack, ransomware, screen capturing, keyloggers, autorun registry keys modification, privilege escalation and keyboard/mouse input emulation attacks. Also, if you need to run some software under full-rights (administrator) user account, you will have to enter your administrator account password that could be intercepted by keyloggers and used by hackers to penetrate your defense.
What kind of applications have to be put under the DefenseWall HIPS sandbox protection?
You have to sandbox your browser, e-mail, multimedia, P2P (like Bittorrent, for instance), instant messaging and IRC clients as they can be used by the intruders to infect your computer.
Google Chrome has a sandbox defense. Do I need an additional one?
Yes, because this browser's sandbox is relying on internal Windows security mechanisms. One sucessfull privilege escalation vulnerability exploitation- and your defense is broken
