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.

April 29, 2010  |  By iluv2cd

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Pro 2010 9.1.008

Pros

So far to date it has been easy to use and get along with

Cons

I don't like the fact that after installing the full program that for some reason my laptop is so slow sometimes I feel like taking a nap waiting for Internet Explorer to load up and then once it does the commands by mouse tak even longer

Summary

I dont dislike the program it does seem to work ,I bought it because of the high rating given by you folks , Trust me I do not have a top of the line laptop ,I have one that works, And it's sad that because of People that feel they need to steal what they want we need programs like these I do like the product I dont like the people that I need it for.

"Excellent Firewall, Highly recommend"

April 23, 2010  |  By Shezman

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Pro 2010 9.1.008

Pros

Zone Alarm has always been one of the best Firewalls available, it has constantly passed all the tests, including the leak test, while some versions have had problems, Version 9.1.507 has improved greatly

Cons

Not sure why CNET is not offering the new version of Zone Alarm Pro, but it has definetly improved over the version that CNET does have available here.

I

Summary

Zone Alarm, has been and continues to be the Best firewall available.

Granted, they have had problems with recent releases, but the new release of zone Alarm Pro 9.1.507 seems to have fixed all the quirky bugs that are in version 9.1.008.

"Love it. Works great."

March 21, 2010  |  By starduststorm

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Pro 2010 9.1.008

Pros

I have had no problems. It runs in the background alerting me when events occur. I am somewhat amazed @ the things going on that I cannot not see that it picks up, I feel very safe and consider it essential. Its there, but not intrusive.

Cons

Occasionally I cannot download things (adobe flash) unless I disable it, but I cannot think of anything else.

Summary

Zone Alarm is made by a trusted and good solid security software company w/many great products. I have found few firewalls that are as thorough and light 'as 'Pro'. I prefer the 'Suite' (older versions-newer one is missing a thing or two).

I was out of work for 10 mo and had to search pretty far and wide to replace all the features of 'Suite' for little or nothing. 'PRO'(firewall only) was offered by the 'Cheapskate' for free so I grabbed it and got rid of whatever I was using for firewall. It sure felt good to be home again.

Though have had a love-hate relationship w/Zone Alarm for many years, their products are exceptional and diifficult to replace, however not a fan of 'Force Field' or 'Extreme Security'. Honest forthright ppl to do business with.

"Tried it and tested it on some well known websites"

March 10, 2010  |  By fabulousity

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Pro 2010 9.1.008

Pros

I am impressed with this version's user interface and claims and used an older Zone Alarm Pro for 2 years before this.

Cons

I tested this version on some test websites and although the pc seem reasonably protected and also the computer name, etc, the computer was never stealth or really invisible!!!

Summary

The test websites was able to reveal my full IP, location, time difference, isp provider and many other system details despite the settings being fully set to invisible mode. My guess is what kind of stealth level are we talking about?

"Quitting ZoneAlarm"

January 23, 2010  |  By jbmlaw

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Pro 2010 9.1.008

Pros

I've had ZA Pro for three years, It makes the computer totally invisible to the outside, better than any other firewall.

Cons

Has a built in computer destroyer - tvdebug.log. The file grows like a cancer. I have to turn off the ZoneAlarm, to manually delete it every two weeks, when it grows to 10 GB (that's gigabytes, not megabytes.) Too high maintenance; others exist.

Summary

ZA has known about the tvdebug problem for more than five years, and does nothing except keep taking my money. Time to change.
