Online Armor Premium Firewall Editor's Review

When the concept of using firewall software became popular, standalone firewall solutions were abundant. However, you can find a majority of PC security suites shipping with a firewall component nowadays and Windows also ships with its own firewall module. Security conscious users still opt for dedicated firewall applications. Online Armor Premium Firewall will cater to needs of these people over casual users. There is a free version available as well.

The installation procedure of Online Armor Premium Firewall is simple except a few prompts that you will get from the OS. Its adapter and network service installation triggers those prompts. It runs on Windows XP and later releases.

After the installation gets over,Online Armor launches its safety check wizard. You can choose the option, "Trust everything on this computer" or opt for the "Step-by-step wizard." The Wizard checks for dangerous processes start up items, system files thoroughly. After this, rebooting the computer is required.

The UI of Online Armor Premium Firewall resembles that of a fully-fledged PC Security suite and it is quite intuitive. It can work along your regular antivirus suite. The highest end Online Armor ++ has a bundled antivirus though. It has three working modes- standard, advanced and banking. In the last mode, the application accepts only a list of user provided accepted domains. Anything else will be blocked by it. Its DNS checker protects users from phishing sites.

The core Firewall module in Online Armor suite is replete with features. You may define rules for each program listed by the application and add your own too. Creating specification is not very complicated as it is. It makes use of bundled OASISdatabase to determine validity of an application that seeks web access. Its Program Guard protection checks each application for any malicious behavior.
In real world usage, the firewall resists Web-based attacks and port attacks well. It also successfully defends any attempts to terminate the core processes. The application has Host Intrusion Prevention System and it reportedly defends against intrusion attempts. However, it does not identify such attacks by name, as does rivals like Norton 360.

Online Armor does a nice job of identifying rogue programs that try to access web by manipulating trusted programs. It also lets you run a suspicious application in a simulated, safer environment. However, it is not exactly like Sandbox protection offered by competing products. So, you need to define rules for virtual keyboard applications installed in the PC. It can sometimes identify valid applications as rogue. In most cases, it leaves the choice to users when installing third party applications. The application offers protection for registry entries and core OS files too. Programs trusted by OASIS can access system files or registry entries. It is a little unusual that its Registry Shield and File Shield features are deactivated by default. Unless you switch to ‘Advanced’ mode, they are inaccessible.

Positive Points:
- E
xcellent protection from port and stealth attacks.
- Unique Banking mode.
- Protection for Registry and OS core files.
- Plenty of customizations.

Negative Points:
- Can catch valid applications as rogue.
- Registry Shield disabled by default.

Conclusion:
Online Armor Premium Firewall is catered to tech savvy or advanced users but a few glitches prevent it from getting the crown in its segment. The application offers you fairly comprehensive firewall protection with some useful add-ons. The banking mode is useful though it is not like sandbox environment. However, the application can sometimes flag valid applications as malware and bombard users with popups. The default deactivated status of Registry Shield is another downer.

Rating: 3.5/5
