Undiscovered threat protection in latest anti-malware release

Check Point : 04 April, 2014  (New Product)
ZoneAlarm gains an upgrade for 2015 with a redesign aimed at fighting web-based malware and protecting from undiscovered threats
Undiscovered threat protection in latest anti-malware release

Check Point has announced the launch of its new ZoneAlarm 2015 security product line, redesigned to thwart a new generation of online threats and advanced Web-based malware.

ZoneAlarm 2015 has new features to protect consumers. For the first time, advanced sandboxing technology is being offered for consumers through the Threat Emulation feature.  Undiscovered threats are often hidden in email attachments and downloads;  in fact, nearly one in 25 email attachments are malicious.  Threat Emulation checks email attachment files such as Microsoft Office and PDF files in a virtual cloud sandbox, and if a file is malicious, the user is alerted to delete it.

The new 2015 product line also includes Enhanced Browser Protection, which scans websites for threats before malware can even reach a users' browser.  Recent independent tests through AV-TEST showed that ZoneAlarm 2015 Extreme Security protected against 100% of threats in real-world testing. Previously tested competitive products protected against an average of 94% of threats.

"Attackers are targeting people by hiding threats everywhere from emails to malicious web links," said Bari Abdul, head of consumer business at Check Point Software Technologies. "ZoneAlarm 2015 packs the best security performance and protections for consumers' online activities. Important features like Threat Emulation can prevent attacks even if they have not been identified by traditional antivirus, while Enhanced Browser Protection offers users maximum protection against destructive malicious links."

In addition to defending against online threats, ZoneAlarm 2015 also protects against the physical threats to consumer devices through the new Find My Laptop feature.  With Find My Laptop, users will be able to track down their lost or stolen laptops utilising maps and tracking technologies.  The feature can also retrieve files, lock down access, send a message to the thief or finder, and even take photos from the webcam.

"Information on your PC is another extension of your identity. From personal photos and documents, to professional files and applications, your physical PC must be protected against loss or theft. ZoneAlarm 2015 provides the security protections needed in this age of growing offline crime and online threats," concluded Abdul.
