ZoneAlarm Extreme Security incorporates browser virtualisation technology

Check Point : 24 February, 2009  (New Product)
The ultimate protection suite for home users combines ZoneAlarm security suite with other tools including browser virtualisation, maintenance tools and on-line backup capability
Check Point Software Technologies has announced the release of ZoneAlarm Extreme Security, a new all-in-one premium software suite that combines core technologies with comprehensive browser security to give consumers unrivaled protection against sophisticated computer and Web attacks. ZoneAlarm Extreme Security also includes secure online backup and system maintenance tools, providing online consumers with the ultimate protection for their home computers. Check Point also released today updated versions of ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite, ZoneAlarm Pro and ZoneAlarm Antivirus that are compatible with Vista 64 bit as well as XP and Vista 32 bit operating systems.

"There has been a dramatic rise in attacks that target vulnerabilities in the Web browser," said Jon Crotty, security research analyst at IDC. "To help stay safe online while shopping and even browsing, consumers should utilize a strong, robust software security package that not only secures their computer but also their Web browser."

The multiple security layers included in the new ZoneAlarm Extreme Security suite provide critical protection against computer and Web-based attacks that by-pass traditional security suites. First introduced with ZoneAlarm ForceField, the virtualized browser technology offers consumers unparalleled protection against new and constantly evolving online threats. The Internet Explorer 7 browser flaw, for example, enabled hackers to infect existing Web sites or set-up rogue ones, which then exposed users to identity-stealing malware. Similarly, the Waledac Botnet recently ran a targeted "campaign" around Valentine's Day, soliciting people with phony holiday themed emails and greeting cards. When users clicked through to a Web site to receive their message, malicious software was silently and automatically downloaded to their computer enabling hackers to steal credit card numbers or online passwords. In both of these examples and many others, only Check Point's ZoneAlarm security product line successfully defended these attacks the first moment they occurred.

"Check Point focuses on creating technologies that help consumers stay ahead of online threats, earning us an unparalleled record for stopping Web attacks," said Juliette Sultan, head of global marketing for Check Point. "With the new ZoneAlarm offering we have taken PC security beyond its traditional level by integrating the most advanced browser security available today with system tools and secure online backup to provide the protection necessary to keep consumers safe in today's sophisticated threat environment."

Built on the award-winning technologies found in ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite and ZoneAlarm ForceField, ZoneAlarm Extreme Security includes:

* The most advanced firewall along with antivirus, anti-spam, anti-spyware and a comprehensive set of additional top-rated PC defenses
* ZoneAlarm ForceField, the state-of-the-art virtualized browser security solution, enabling users to bank, shop and surf safely online
* Online backup tools provide data security by safeguarding the files and data consumers care about most, protecting them from loss, theft, accidental deletion or disk failure
* Optional private-key encryption further strengthens data security by protecting important documents should the storage server ever be compromised
* PC tune-up and system maintenance tools that automatically clean, organize and streamline the system
* Support for Windows XP and Windows Vista 64-bit and 32-bit platforms

"ZoneAlarm Extreme Security was created to give consumers the peace of mind that their daily online activities and stored personal information are constantly protected from existing and future Web attacks," concluded Sultan.
