ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall Software Update

 

ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall is an aggressive move by Check Point Software to combine two of the nearly everyone sought after security features every PC should have.

Features:

ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+Firewall includes many powerful features for both their antivirus and firewall. There is real-time protection against virus, as well as auto updating definitions and scheduling. ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall will only check for new definitions once every 24
hours, while its paid version will update as soon as new definitions are available. ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall's firewall features a log of the different programs that are accessing the internet. The firewall will also provide users a list of program and their "Trust Level," which is a good way to quickly glance at disbelieving applications. There is also phishing and spyware protection build here. One shocking facet of ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall is "Game method," which allows you to temporarily suspend ZoneAlarm's popup notifications for uninterrupted gaming. Users can also set it to allow all firewall requests, which is obviously less secure.

Conclusion:

While other programs have more advanced features, ZoneAlarm has successfully combined two of the most important security features for the average user and all for free. This makes it a very useful program for virtually anyone needing this type of protection.

Performance:

Performance of ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall is very good. Quick scans take only a few minutes. Full scans will take some time but are still an development over older ZoneAlarm programs. The speed increase is a result of a redesigned scanning engine. Still, we found ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall to be resource intensive on our system and slow our boot times down. Competition antivirus applications were quicker and fewer resource serious.
