OutPost vs Glasswire comparison

A firewall is a piece of hardware or software that protects your computer or personal network from hackers and unauthorized traffic. Although combining hardware and software firewalls is the best way to protect your computer and network, most of the users prefer to use only software firewalls to protect their networks and PCs. Because in most cases, software firewalls can address the user's general security needs. On the other hand, these firewalls cost much less than hardware firewalls.

There are several software firewalls on the market, so you need to pay attention to the features of each firewall and select the right one according to your priorities. In this article, we are going to compare two popular firewalls, OutPost vs Glasswire.

GlassWire basically is a network monitor and security tool. It also has a built-in firewall. You can use some of its features for free or could pay for one of the full protection versions.

You can also install Glasswire on multiple servers and monitor their network activity on your local computer via its remote access feature.

 

Note: The free version of the Glasswire includes no firewall.

Note: You should always use a separate primary antivirus alongside with the Glasswire firewall because it does not include antivirus by itself.

 

Outpost Firewall is also completely free. It can run on all windows versions. Note that the latest version of the Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro is version 9.3. It is discontinued and is not updated or supported from 2015.
