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.

    "Does whomever designed this still have the job?"

    January 28, 2013   |   By winn23

    Version: ZoneAlarm Pro Firewall 110.000.038

    Pros

    I can't think of anything.

    Cons

    This is the worst interface design I have ever seen. With all the wasted space and scrolling and multiclicking required to manage this
    mess, it appears designed by some amatuer.WHY DON'T they put the information on the screen instead of forcing you to SCROLL or drop down context menus for it. The lack of gridlines causes lots of wasted time scrolling back and forth to verify that you are tick/unticking the correct thing. The design is bland and uninteresting, like someone sucked the life out of it==which is exactly what trying to use this version will do to you.

    Summary

    So disappointing! What are they thinking??
    If the top managers of Checkpoint were forced to use this, heads would roll...then again, maybe they are the designers.
