Free Antivirus and Firewall From ZoneAlarm

Check Point : 03 May, 2012  (New Product)
Check Point is now producing its combined firewall and antivirus package available as a free download
Free Antivirus and Firewall From ZoneAlarm
Check Point has announced the availability of ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall 2013 - the most complete free Internet security solution for consumers, available for download from May 1st.

ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall combines the world’s No.1 firewall with award-winning antivirus into one easy-to-use product that protects consumers against hackers, viruses, spyware, and malware that attacks consumers’ PCs.

ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall offers a multi-layered defence, protecting consumers against already-identified and new threats.  The product’s firewall and antivirus work seamlessly and efficiently together, eliminating compatibility problems and simplifying the entire security experience for consumers.

“Most consumers are unwittingly making themselves an easy target for cyber criminals,” said Bari Abdul, Vice President and Head of ZoneAlarm, Check Point Software Technologies’ consumer business. “They lack a strong 2-way firewall, are unwilling or unable to pay for security, or they have just left their security on the back burner.  People are putting themselves at serious risk by not having minimum security, which at least includes a firewall and antivirus software.  It’s basically like leaving your home without locking the doors.

“With ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall, we hope to spur a widespread security movement that will help consumers better protect themselves from dangerous predators lurking online. This will in turn help provide a more secure experience for all PC users.”

ZoneAlarm’s robust two-way firewall operates quietly in the background, monitoring incoming and outgoing traffic to and from a PC and the Internet.  It blocks hackers from getting into a PC and stops them from launching attacks, stealing information, and sending data back to their home servers to conduct malicious activities.  This functionality is powered by ZoneAlarm DefenseNet™, a proven third generation cloud-based service.  ZoneAlarm DefenseNet automatically verifies the safety of a program by analysing data from more than 60 million users through the cloud, eliminating overwhelming alerts and interruptions.

Meanwhile, ZoneAlarm’s powerful antivirus engine scans, detects, and removes any malicious programs from a user’s PC.  To further insulate a user’s system, ZoneAlarm’s OSFirewall adds an additional layer of protection by spotting and stopping any suspicious behaviour and new attacks.

ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall Features:

* Antivirus/Spyware Scan Engine – Scans, detects, and removes, known and unknown malware, such as viruses, spyware, Trojan horses, worms, bots, and rootkits.
* 2-Way Firewall – Stops inbound and outbound attacks.
* OS Firewall - Monitors behaviours within a PC to spot and stop sophisticated new attacks that bypass traditional antivirus software and security suites.
* Advanced Download Protection - Analyzes downloads and warns you if a download is malicious - stopping it from infecting a user’s PC.
* Identity Theft Protection – Delivers data encryption and offers offline identity protection.
* Anti-Phishing/Site Status Toolbar – Blocks spyware distribution sites and fraudulent phishing websites.
* Online Backup - Protect your files in the event of loss, theft, accidental deletion, or disk failure.
* Compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP – Enables protection across all of the latest operating systems.

ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall 2013 is available now in English, German, French, and Spanish. The product is completely free for individuals and not-for-profit charitable entities.
