Zone Alarm Free Firewall

Posted by cotojo on May 10, 2007


Get Into the Zone

Malware. An odd sounding word created to lump all malicious software programs, including viruses, worms, trojans, spyware, adware, and other malevolent codes into one cause-your-computer-serious-hurt category.

In 2005, Computer Economics released a report on malware. The good news was that for the first time since 2002, the total worldwide financial losses from malware actually declined to a mere $14.2 billion. The bad news was that the nature of malware was changing from overt threats to more focused, covert attacks. This definitely is not great news for the average computer user just trying to keep up with the hundreds of malware programs that bombard us daily.

It’s not an easy task keeping malware out of your computer system. In order to accomplish this, you need a strong antivirus program. I have covered that with AVG Anti-Virus.

Now you need a good firewall to complement it. One such program that can deliver the goods is ZoneAlarm Free Firewall from Zone Labs. Zone Labs is one of the most trusted brands in Internet Security for good reason. Their product, simply put, kicks serious malware gluteus maximus.

ZoneAlarm has received more review recommendations that any other Internet-security software suite because of its superb firewall protection. It blocks pop-up ads, protects against identify theft and provides adequate spam filters that are flexible. It even beats the market leader, Norton Internet Security, which is often criticized for excessive system drag.

The bonus for the average user who cringes at the idea of setting-up one of these systems is that the interface is easier to understand and use in comparison to most if its competitors. If you choose to venture beyond the out-of-the-box default settings, and install a more elaborate filtering, know that this will require some additional time to set up on your part.

Overall, ZoneAlarm is a user-friendly, solution that will have your computer safe from Internet hazards and cyber criminals within minutes of installation and it also has an auto-update feature, very useful.

ZoneAlarm makes it easy. Unlike other personal firewalls, ZoneAlarm protects automatically from the moment it’s installed – no programming required. ZoneAlarm barricades your PC with immediate and complete port blocking. And then runs in Stealth Mode to make your PC invisible on the
Internet – if you can’t be seen, you can’t be attacked.

ZoneAlarm is a simple to use Firewall without compromising your security. A getting started tutorial explains controls and alerts to get you up and running quickly. And, to keep you confident that you’re always protected, intuitive color-coded alerts rate security risks – in real time. For basic, “no frills” firewall protection, ZoneAlarm® is the popular first step for many home PC users. And it’s still FREE for individual & non-profit use.

Install it and forget it. ZoneAlarm comes configured to deliver “out-of the-box” safety and security. As you use your computer and applications that access the Internet, a bubble will open on the lower left of your screen and ZoneAlarm asks you whether you want applications to access the Internet. It quietly protects you while logging unauthorized repelled attempts to access your computer.

Security Levels make ZoneAlarm easy to use. In just a few seconds you can decide how secure you want your system to be. In contrast to other security solutions, ZoneAlarm does not require you to learn about ports, protocols and firewall programming. Security Levels automatically configure the Firewall and eliminate the risk of improper use that comes with other products. With ZoneAlarm’s Security Levels, you get peace of mind, not confusion. ZoneAlarm makes Internet safety and security hassle-free.

Remember……either back-up your system or create a Restore Point BEFORE making any changes.

So what are you waiting for?

    Podge – Thank you for your comment, however if it is too slow to download, I would suggest that you have a problem with your PC as the download is only 205kb, which downloads in under 30 seconds on cable and other broadband connections. I timed it at less than 1 second on Blueyonder!!

    John – can you be more specific with ‘re associates with a antivirus program’ please.

    Comments are moderated due to spam.

    If necessary, uninstallation is a simple process, got to Start > Contol Panel > Add/Remove Programs and select ‘Remove’.
