Advanced Persistent Security

F-Secure XFENCE is a utility for keeping your personal data safe from malware, trojans, back doors, misbehaving applications, and other threats to your computer’s security, by preventing any application from accessing your files without explicit permission.

It also requires applications to get your permission before they can use your webcam, install new start-up programs, take control of other programs, eavesdrop on your internet connection, and more. F-Secure XFENCE actively monitors for keyboard eavesdropping, microphone use and other activities that can affect your privacy.
