ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

CNET 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.

    "A fine program once you are familiar with it"

    December 18, 2005  |   By Reviewer_Matt

    Version: ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 6.0.667.000

    Pros

    First of all, too many people complain that all these error messages come up and the program INVADES their computer, I don't seem to find any problem once you become familiar with it. I have the full version but the problem with the trial of 15 days is this: ZA first needs to 'learn' your computer, it does so by letting you decide if you trust programs that access the internet. This is where people blow the situation way out of control whereby they deny all programs to access the internet (no wonder they have problems), ZA provides all details of the program to let you decide and you can change it easily once you have realised you chose to deny the wrong program. Because of the ZA learning curve the first week may seem like this program needs all your attention. You will find that after a couple of weeks (at most) you will not need to assist ZA anymore, just let it monitor in the background. After the 2 week period you can set ZA to make its own decisions from the information you gave it.

    FEATURE: ANTIVIRUS/SPYWARE.

    Antivirus is above average

    Antispyware average (suggest spyware doctor to sweep up what ZA doesn't pick up) I'm comparing ZA Quick Scan to Spyware Doctor not ZA Deep Inspection Scan which is far more comprehensive than Spyware Doctor but costly on time.

    FEATURE: PRIVICY.

    Very strong privicy, if you set it to high no popup/redirection/unknown file download file will ever enter your computer without you knowing.

    FEATURE: IMSECURITY

    Scans all messages for harmful content, encrypts if other person(s) have the program aswell.

    FEATURE: EMAIL PROTECTION

    Redirects all junk mail into a new folder. Blocks harmful links.

    FEATURE:ZONE ALARM MAP

    You are able to pinpoint the IP of a potential hacker. Provides their company/home/number and you can tip them off to Zone Labs corporation!

    Cons

    The only cons I can come up with is that the true vector file is a little large, I only have 256MB of memory to waste (takes about 10 seconds to load). ZA Antispyware doesn't pick up everything with Quick Scan but you can set it to deep inspection which takes about 1h but gets everything. If you don't want to wait the hour and but want a thorough scan I suggest Spyware doctor. The pro to antispyware though is that it provides extensive information on the spyware unlike Spyware doctor (whereby I don't know which spyware I have and why it is a problem). I hope you learnt something from me, a person that has used ZA Security Suite for 1+ years, and not completely put your trust in those people who have tried the program for 2h before complaining about it!

    "AMAZING!!!"

    December 11, 2005  |   By blondevixon

    Version: ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 6.0.667.000

    Pros

    I really like this program better than Norton for lots of reasons, but mainly because it seems to keep my computer safe from harmful attacks, also it alerts me when a program is trying to obtain internet access so since my internet is through a cable/modem, it's always on and ZOne Alarm is still protecting whether it's on or not.

    Cons

    I really don't have anything bad to say about the program, but when you log onto MSN it takes it a while to connect.

    "Great program, a MUST have"

    December 9, 2005  |   By narnold83

    Version: ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 6.0.667.000

    Pros

    I have been a long time user of Zone Labs software (5 years). This program is an all-in-one solution for internet security. It's frequently updated, and when configured/used properly, you will notice that you don't have any spam/pop-ups/spyware/trojans/worms/viruses etc...

    Cons

    It does requires a small chunk of system resources. Not recommended for the older cpu's.

    "good product but it greatly slows down our PC to a crawl."

    December 6, 2005  |   By koopmansteve

    Version: ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 6.0.667.000

    Pros

    I like many of the functions it offers, but...

    Cons

    this software grealy slows down our PC to a crawl.. It was first discovered on our win98 PC and the other installed software were slowed down quite a bit and this was verified by our winXP PC thus forcing me to uninstall and go for another firewall software. Nice product but no go....
