Editors' review

Along with its effective and easy-to-use firewall and additional security features, this new version of ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite brings mostly solid antispyware protection to the table. ZoneAlarm's wizard makes configuring a firewall incredibly easy. The application's stylish interface and simple slider controls make maintaining and updating settings a snap. The app now boasts an ultrasecure triple-layer firewall, which safeguards your machine's OS and Registry. Experts will appreciate options that let them set up custom rules. The program's Zones feature also allows you to assign different security levels for local networks and the Internet. We found ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite to be very good at recognizing and automatically including settings for our local network, and it also can automatically detect wireless machines. In all our tests, the firewall guarded against all external and internal threats it encountered.

Beyond the firewall function, ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite includes an antivirus scanner based on Computer Associates' Vet Anti-Virus. You also get a cookie cleaner, an ad blocker, a pop-up stopper, and new antispwyare tools. Happily, the app offers both real-time protection against malware as well as a scanning engine. In our tests, spyware scans were blisteringly fast and almost always accurate, though ZoneAlarm Pro did leave a few minor traces that some dedicated utilities removed. The real-time module also fared pretty well, but we wish it offered more information on potential threats from directly within the program. Elsewhere, we like the privacy-protection features, which let you apply settings individually to different Web sites. The ID Lock feature stores personal information, such as social security and credit card numbers. Internet Security Suite is the only version of ZoneAlarm to incorporate a basic filter that blocks sites according to various types of content; you can configure it to block various types of naughtiness or just one category, such as racist material. Security Suite also incorporates the company's IMSecurity program, which protects instant-messenging programs from spam and encrypts messages (so long as the person on the other end also is using IMSecurity). Users looking for one solution to almost all their Internet-security concerns can turn to ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite.
