    We @ are very pleased to announce our second
    AppGuard Pro – 5x Lifetime Licenses Giveaway!


    First I would like to thank Blue Ridge Networks for their kind generosity for donating the licenses for this giveaway.

    Overview of AppGuard

    Blue Ridge Network’s AppGuard uses an approach that is dissimilar to traditional antivirus methods protecting systems and networks against attacks from malware, viruses, zero-day attacks, phishing, and ransomware. Traditional antivirus solutions focuses more on detection, scanning, signature creation, and updating, AppGuard keenly focuses on isolation and containment, memory protection, malware execution prevention, and application control.

    AppGuard is the only true multi-layer defense that stops all variants of ransomware. Even if the ransomware is signed with stolen certificates keys, AppGuard protects the endpoint, preventing the potential damage and cost of extortion. With pre-execute control, even the most sophisticated drive-by-download-initiated ransomware will not be allowed to start. The attack is halted at the earliest stages. If the ransomware is signed with digitally stolen certificate keys, AppGuard’s post-run application controls contain the ransomware, preventing it from altering user’s critical files on the system or spreading to other computers. AppGuard provides protection from attacks, regardless of the method of distribution. Security choices are never made by end users, so even opening a link containing malware will do no harm and allow the user continued use of the application. These types of attacks are stoppable – by AppGuard.


    AppGuard enforces three (3) settings. The first is the "Locked Down". This is the most secure level, and the one recommended for browsing untrusted sites, preventing any installations or updates from the internet. Any applications, signed or unsigned, are blocked from running in this setting. The next level is "Medium" (Recommended for most everyday use.), which allows for automatic updates on programs/applications which you enter in the “Guarded Applications” list. The most widely deployed and commonly used applications, such as Microsoft Office and Adobe Reader, are added to this list by AppGuard during install. All programs and applications inside the list that you create in “Guarded Applications” are MemoryGuarded, which means they cannot access another application or process’s memory.

    The last and final setting is called "Install". As the word implies "Install level" is the setting/config required to install or update most applications on the system or network. MemoryGuard feature is disabled here (in contrast with Medium level) to allow installation or update programs to work and modify file system, registry, and memory settings needed at installation time. If you select this level there is a default setting that will automatically resume medium level after a specific period of time.

    There are advanced settings/customizations beyond the default levels of Locked Down, Medium, and Install. These allow the user to add new guarded applications, edit existing settings on currently guarded applications, and add applications of specific publishers so they can run unguarded (similar to white listing), among other options.

    AppGuard is fully compatible with all Windows versions (Windows XP to Windows 10) and popular browsers, and greatly compliments common antivirus software and intrusion detection systems (IDS) that may already be installed in the user’s environment. Blue Ridge Networks advocates the use of antivirus software to scan systems at certain time intervals as a normal maintenance routine, as well as the usage of firewalls. Both are good overall security practices.

    For this type of layer security approach, AppGuard provides options for these applications to be set as a “Power Application” via the customization settings. Placing any application in the “Power Application” list will effectively disable AppGuard from controlling or monitoring them. This is a sort of an "exclude application" so these application will continue to perform their pre-defined function of protecting you whilst running aside AppGuard.

    New AppGuard Licensing Schemes
    For those who are using or have been using AppGuard, they know that it is a lifetime license and perpetual. There are some changes to that effect. This information is directly from the Blue Ridge Networks Product Management.

    The current version is AppGuard version 5.2 and it is now an annual subscription license. All future AppGuard consumer releases will now be subscription-based AppGuard Personal. AppGuard Professional ver4.4.6.1 which carries a lifetime license usage but not perpetual. Meaning there will be no free planned free-upgrades to this ver4.4.6.1. Minor/Major updates may or may not be considered at this time.

    I personally love how AppGuard works and i want to replace my current anti-exe who is not even close as good as AG......and not to mention its certifications, which are strong in the field of security.

    Appguard policy to prevent any type of process execution which can block any unknown threat makes it the best. They don't have any free version with at least basic protection and I want to keep monitoring my executables from harming my pc in any way.
    Thanks for the contest..

    AppGuard is the best software to protect our system from the new rising threats basically what we call now a days are ransomware which are attacking our systems a lot.

That's All...

    Thanks jasonX for the giveaway.

    "WHY do you want to win an AppGuard Pro lifetime license?"
    I want to win AppGuard Professional because of these features - memory protection, malware execution prevention, and application control. I can install this on my mother's laptop and configure it for no installs at all. This will help prevent any accidental installs done by my mother, given that she is not tech savvy. Also as this is a lifetime license, it's gonna be a install and forget case.

    Followed AppGuard on Twitter

    PS: I have a question below for you, as I wasn't able to find an answer myself.
    Is there a change log available for AppGuard version 5.2?

    Thanks, Grr

    Thanks for the Giveaway!
    AppGuard developed by Blue Ridge Networks uses a set of policy restriction providing advanced security without scanning and updates. It isolates and contains malicious code, allowing users to go online without concern about exposure to viruses and it will block any malicious code from executing itself. With this specific feature, I would like to equip with this software and hope to win this license to have a trial on it.
