ZoneAlarm

CNET Editors' review

An effective and easy-to-use firewall program, ZoneAlarm does a great job of keeping your PC safe from a variety of threats. ZoneAlarm makes configuring a firewall, which sounds like a daunting task to the majority of computer users, incredibly easy with a wizard. Maintaining and updating settings also is a snap when you're using the stylish interface and its simple slider controls. The program's Zones feature also allows you to assign different security levels for a local network and for the Internet. We found ZoneAlarm very good at recognizing and automatically including settings for our local network. In all our tests, the firewall guarded against all external and internal threats it encountered. Therefore, we think ZoneAlarm is an excellent firewall choice for just about any average user.

    "Decent Firewall, seen better though"

    April 30, 2006  |   By kywildcatfan

    Version: ZoneAlarm 6.1.737

    Pros

    Installs well, uninstalls ok, does what it is designed to do to an extent, it doesn't have a learning feature like Norton, which is very dangerous.

    Cons

    Resource hog, needs to be more user friendly, still haven't figured out how to make it work with Xbox Live through ICS. I heard there was a hole in the firewall that Zonelabs refuses to fix on the free version.

    "its good to keep those peasts away"

    April 27, 2006  |   By dsjwallace

    Version: ZoneAlarm 6.1.737

    Pros

    This program includes four interlocking security services: a firewall, an application control, an Internet lock, and Zones. The firewall controls the door to your computer and allows only traffic you understand and initiate. The application control allows you to decide which applications can and cannot use the Internet. The Internet lock blocks Internet traffic while your computer is unattended or while you're not using the Internet, and it can be activated automatically with your computer's screensaver or after a set period of inactivity. Zones monitor all activity on your computer and alert you when a new application attempts to access the Internet. Version 6.1.737 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.All that for free it's great

    "*reliable* and helpful. you must try this one!!"

    April 23, 2006  |   By jomar the great

    Version: ZoneAlarm 6.1.737

    Pros

    my computer: PIV 2.6 Ghz 512Mb(RAM) XP

    1)it protects you from intrusions just like other commercial firewalls.

    2)it detects programs trying to access the net and asks you if you the program is trustworthy, then it will allow the said program.

    3)the controls are adjustable. you can set which program can access/can't access the net. (just like other expensive firewall)

    4)gives mail protection. (basic)

    5)monitors your anti-virus program

    6)free

    7)unlike Norton i-net security/firewall, this one is a speed bird. it doesn't hog your resources that much. far from comparison with the junky Norton.

    Cons

    1) some say it slows down their PC, but my computer(defined above) didn't slowed down too much. Okay, it is normal for any firewall program to load quite a minute and thats fast enough. the startup speed has decreased--but hey, a 30 second decrease is very,very decent.

    2) the only major downside I guess would be the incompatibility issue with AVAST! anti-virus free edition. zonealarm doesn't detect my AVAST!. AVAST! makes up by informing that they are on the negotiations with zonelabs to fix this. this firewall *may* interupt with the "Webshield" function of AVAST! so you must reconfigure AVAST! if you are using it with this firewall.

    that is all that I have noticed using this product for about 12 days. FINAL WORD: HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE AND PRACTICAL against other expensive junky firewalls.

    "Once I solved the problem of losing internet connection I have no complaints wit"

    April 20, 2006  |   By imearly4u

    Version: ZoneAlarm 6.1.737

    Pros

    Product worked fine once I fixed the problem of losing internet connection all the time.

    Cons

    Upon reading all the revues the biggest problem was losing internet connection all the time. After 6 months of same problem I solved the problem. To solve this open Zone Alarm and open firewall, in there you will find two settings. Internet zone and trust zone. Leave trust zone on medium. Go ahead and change internet zone from high to medium. Once you do this your connection problems should be solved. If this works for any of you please reply and let me know. GOOD LUCK
