Sandboxie VS Dell KACE

Post by Rico on 23/10/2010, 07:37

A challenger appears; Dell kace claims to be a security initiative that gives the users a the opportunity to use a virtualized firefox (that includes flash and adobe reader plugins) that is isolated from the host.

I have some significant questions about this "alternative":

1-How effective is this in terms of protection against malware on x64 platform compared to sandboxie?
2-Is this more robust than sandboxie overall?
3-How does resource usage fare?
4-Would you use consider this a viable replacement od sandboxie, why or why not?

When I read Buster's comment (as above), I didn't even bother trying it out. However, I may give it a go if I get bored enough haha.

By the way, it sounds like it only sandboxes the web-browser? What about other online applications (chat messenger programs, online games etc), and CD/DVD/USB drives?

Pff it doesn't isolate anyother apps... After more research it turns out that it was Application virtualization rather than Hardware level virtualization (liek vmware virtual apps) as wrongly assumed on wilders by Kees. Since it works at the same level as sandboxie -- well there could only be one clear winner SANDBOXIE!! Very Happy

KACE doesnt even work on 64 bit, seems that they cant figure out a way for it like tzuk Laughing
It pretty remarkable how all the competitors over the years have run into walls in this niche and how tzuk keeps on elevating the status and excellence of his product.
Many have fallen; greenborder, safespace, bufferzone (seems abandoned with no support and no x64)
