Editors' Review

+

Along with its effective and easy-to-use firewall and additional security features, this new version of ZoneAlarm Pro revamps the mostly solid antispyware protection introduced in the last release.

ZoneAlarm's wizard makes firewall configuration and maintanence incredibly easy, with a stylish interface and simple slider controls. The app boasts an ultrasecure triple-layer firewall and experts will appreciate the customizing options. The Zones feature allows you to assign different security levels for local networks and the Internet. The program was very good at automatically including our local network settings and auto-detected wireless machines. In all our tests, the firewall held strong against all threats it encountered.

The suite also includes an antivirus scanner, a cookie cleaner, ad and pop-up blockers 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 some minor traces were left behind. The real-time module could have offered more information from directly within the program on potential threats. Other features include Web site-specific protections, an ID Lock for personal information and a configurable site-blocking content filter. With a tougher firewall and the antispyware tool strengthening, this excellent program just keeps improving.

"Still...The Best when it comes to (True) security."

October 16, 2009  |  By nighttracker

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Pro 2010 9.0.083

Pros

This is about the only Firewall that provides total port(s) protection and,it ain't just "here-say" 'Test it youself (If) you know how to do it and,that says it all.

Cons

Dislike the (15-Day) trial,..Should be 30-day trial, It takes some learning involved with this product and 15-days is not sufficient for most.This is why most people have said they either have never tried or by-pass the download.ZA could do better.

Summary

port 113 is probally the most dangerous port on any PC....most firewall leave this open for things such as e-mail etc.so a PC is never truly in a full stealth mode.there are very few programs that close this port and when you find one that does the work such as ZA,you are alot better-off .Go to www.grc.com and take some True test for a firewall.you will be alot better off with the Truth.Semper-Fi

"Total Disappointment"

October 14, 2009  |  By -tab

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Pro 2010 9.0.083

Pros

Froze while installing.

Cons

Have serious incompatibility issues, try at your own risk.
Subscription based.

Summary

Decided to give it one more try and hopefully the issues it had before will have been solved, but no. Program was a waste of my bandwidth and time due to restoring my computer as it freezes everytime at startup with it partially installed. I'm done with the softwares from this company.

"Not sure about the system requirements ?"

October 13, 2009  |  By warp8x

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Pro 2010 9.0.083

Pros

Not sure yet

Cons

Does it support Windows 2000 anymore?

Summary

Has your specs been verified with Zone Alarm? I had an old ZoneAlarm Pro v7 using Windows2000. When it expired, I was not able to upgrade to v8 because Zone Alarm no longer supports Windows2000. So with this version, ZoneAlarm Pro 2010 9.0.083, has ZoneAlarm went back to supporting Windows2000 OS ???

"Note! ZAP 9.0.114.000 - Simplified to a pure Firewall !"

October 08, 2009  |  By sweidre7

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Pro 2010 9.0.083

Pros

1.) This version is a pure firewall
2.) Spyware handling is removed
2.) Easy to configure
3.) Best Firewall to get ports "stealthy"

Cons

1.) Difficulty to save changes! Tips: After changes, go to Firewall -> Zones -> make a minor "fake" change, ZAP will save settings automatically!
2.) Spyware scanning is removed!
3.) No Email support
4.) Blue is the only option for background

Summary

I am looking for a pure Firewall, and this version of ZAP is the best one!

"The "New" Old product."

September 04, 2009  |  By aries_toomany

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Pro 2010 9.0.083

Pros

Good security, protection, and runs smoothly.

Cons

Subscription always needs renewal after every reboot or startup.

Summary

I liked the previous versions of ZA Pro, along with Internet Security versions too; but this is not what I want to deal with. First of all, I have this problem with subscription renewal every time I start up the computer... even if I already entered numerous serial keys for the session. Then I restart the computer, and it says it expires when I load up ZA Pro. This only happens with versions 8.0 and newer. I had no problems with version 7.1.248, as it kept the subscription perfectly. I give this a two-star rating.
