There are constant threats that emerge in the world of technology and these malicious files and programs often find their way to our computers too. in a bid to tackle threats that are yet unknown and may not be detected by even the most renowned antivirus software, Sandboxie Holdings LLC developed the software Sandboxie that isolates unknown files and applications, thereby reducing the risk of infection to your computer.
Sandboxie supports and runs very well in windows 7, 8. However, the program doesn’t seem to be perfectly compatible with windows 8, for it keeps popping up errors suggesting seeking assistance online or running the program without online help. The latest version supports windows 9 and windows 10 well.
It supports versions like Windows XP and Windows Vista which are available in both 32 and 64 bit versions. It also supports web browsers like Firefox, Chrome, Cyber Fox, Opera, etc. Softwares like Microsoft office Suite, PDF and Multimedia files will be updated automatically and continuously with the free version updates.
Sandboxie was recognised and appreciated by a number of lists from prestigious leading security solutions companies such as the Brothersoft 2010 Editors Pick. Gizmos Freeware gave it an impressive rating of nine stars out of ten and included it into their editor’s choice list as the best free browser protection program. Softonic rated it eight out of ten stars.
How does Sandboxie Work?
When you have downloaded the software, and after setting all the programs to first go into the sandbox, the program will trigger an alarm for malicious threats while the user is surfing the internet or running the programs. Once it shows a pop up, all you have to do is delete the contents from the sandbox. Even if you forget or do not wish to manually delete them, they do not break out from the sandbox into your underlying system and remain in the sandbox only.
Sandboxie is an outstanding security software for the Windows Operating System. However, we have to realize that it is not a replacement for security software. Hence, it should be used along with your existing security software to further enhance the overall security of your system.
