The reason that made me create this poll is the following.
As you all may be aware of, COMODO with the new release of COMODO Internet Security suite, brought to users the technology provided by COMODO Memory Firewall.
Those are great news, for those users who use all COMODO security products… But, there’s always a catch. COMODO completely killed COMODO Memory Firewall, as a stand alone product.
That’s bad news, because, although someone may not use their firewall, they could use their memory firewall, so that they could prevent buffer overflow attacks.
Now, according to this https://forums.comodo.com/comodo_boclean_antimalware/boclean_to_be_discontinued-t34653.0.html;msg249080#msg249080, it seems that COMODO BOClean, after being implemented into COMODO Internet Security suite, will also vanish in the horizon. That means, that it also won’t be available as a stand alone tool.
One more bad news, I must say.
I totally dislike this COMODO attitude, and the reason is very simple.
First, there was COMODO Firewall Pro. Then, COMODO brought their antivirus into life and implemented into a security suite, along side COMODO Firewall Pro.
Many of you, like me, whether you’re users of this forum, or just visit it to check on something, had to download COMODO Internet Security, just to use the firewall + hips module. This meant and still means, that everyone with limited monthly traffic is wasting traffic they can’t afford to waste, just to get a part of the bundle.
And, according to some people, it seems that even if you choose not to install COMODO Antivirus, it will still occupie space?
With the next release of COMODO Internet Security suite, we will see COMODO BOClean. More extras, that some of us may or may not be using. More monthly traffic wasted.
Why doesn’t COMODO make it possible for everyone be able to use what they wish? Why would anyone have to download a bundle, just to get a part of it?
So, I ask here to everyone to give their opinion about it.
Please note, this is not a thread to complaint about COMODO implementing COMODO Memory Firewall and COMODO BOClean into COMODO Internet Security, rather to complaint why COMODO won’t still make those products available as stand alone versions?
Also, why not, also make a stand alone version of the antivirus and COMODO Firewall Pro?
The way this is going, I’ll have no other choice than to stop using COMODO Firewall Pro, which is the only tool I use from COMODO. And as me, there are many others out there.
Should we be forced to download a bundle, just to get the firewall?
What’s better? Having users to download just COMODO Firewall Pro, or start losing them?
Consider this suggestion by eXPerience
If so, I think they should rethink their installer. They have to make something like the “windows live installer”.
It’s a downloader, you chose what programs you want and what not. It downloads and installs them… Simple and straightforward. There should also be a choice of downloading everything immediately.
Also considering an option to actually safeguard the download would be welcome.
Ultimately, this nothing more than my suggestion is. The ultimate decision lies within COMODO. I truly hope the right decision is done. I truly do.
P.S: Those saying No, say why not. Those saying Yes, I already know why.
