New cloud scan, new license system and cheaper renewals.
The version change may appear rather small, but the innovations are rather impressive: even more security and fewer annoying alerts thanks to double cloud support, improved update and license system as well as nice discounts for loyal customers are the most important innovations in Emsisoft Online Armor 5.5.
Emsisoft Online Armor is a highly modern firewall with powerful HIPS (Host Intrusion Protection System) for Windows. It permanently monitors all network connections and system-related activities, which makes your PC even more secure against hacker attacks. The following innovations make Online Armor 5.5 our best firewall ever:
- Integration of Anti-Malware Network:
Unknown programs are immediately cross-checked against the cloud. The Online Databasecontains around 4 million entries and relies on the intelligence of the cloud. Programs considered harmless are automatically permitted, while annoying pop-up windows and alerts are omitted. So you can totally focus on your work!
- New cloud-based scan:
Our cloud scan, already used in Emsisoft MalAware, has been included in Online Armor. Even if there is no record of a file in the Anti-Malware Network, more than 7 million signatures mean that malware can be recognized reliably to keep your PC safe.
- Improved license and update system:
Software updates are downloaded and installed way quicker. Moreover, Online Armor relies on the license system used for other Emsisoft products. Access our Customer Center to find and manage the licenses for all your Emsisoft products in one place. Your Online Armor license key will be automatically transferred to the new system as soon as you use version 5.5 for the first time. Unnecessary key resets when reinstalling your OS are a thing of the past.
- New pricing system rewards your loyalty:
The 1-year license is 25 % cheaper if renewed once the initial 1-year period has expired and will be a further 5 % cheaper for every additional year you renew it. Long-term customers can thus benefit from discounts of up to 50 %.
