The new build brings smarter sandboxing with a new default “auto-sandboxing policy”, keeping unknown programs isolated from your system.
As usual with Comodo, if you’re not happy with something then it’s all very configurable. In this case you can build your own automatic sandboxing policy based on the file reputation, origin and more.
However it’s set up, new support for hardware virtualisation (Intel VT-x or AMD SVM) ensures your target processes are locked in their own virtual machines.
Smarter logging sees Comodo 8 send events to the Windows Event logs, which could simplify any troubleshooting.
An extended Viruscope delivers better performance, tracks more activities, and now works on all applications, whether they’re in the sandbox or not.
Of course this all comes with the usual interface revamp, which this time involves the obligatory “Flat Tile” theme (“updated icons and colors for better look and feel”) and a redesigned “Advanced Settings” window.
