22: ZoneAlarm Security Suite 2010

posted in : ZoneAlarm | comment : 0

ZoneAlarm Security Suite 2010 is one of the leading anti-virus solutions on the market. While there are products available that say that they can remove viruses from your computer, none do it like ZoneAlarm Security Suite 2010.

The ZoneAlarm series of products has been known for providing excellent protection against viruses, spyware and other infections. However, one of the biggest problems with ZoneAlarm is installation on systems already infected with malware. While few security programs work well on a virus infested system, ZoneAlarm is particularly poor when it comes to dealing with the problem.

One of the things that ZoneAlarm is great at preventing is spam. There is almost no spam that is received when using Outlook thanks to ZoneAlarm’s excellent spam filtering technology. This technology determines which messages are spam and flags them for you to review.

Should the system mistakenly flag a message that is non-spam, it will send it to a folder where you can recover. It will also learn from what messages is spam and which messages are not to ensure the incident does not happen again.

ZoneAlarm is also an effective program when it comes to traditional Trojans, root keys and other virus infections. Any viruses that try to penetrate the system are stopped short and prevented from accessing the key files which would allow them to cause major damage to your system. While there is a lot that can go on within your computer, ZoneAlarm makes sure that only the bare minimum can actually proceed past its high levels of filtering.

Updates:

ZoneAlarm provides updates as needed, even within an hour for new threats. You can also start an update anytime you wish. ZoneAlarm Security Suite 2010 provides 0 hour root kit protection and new definition updates automatically.

  • Anti-phishing and Site Status

To sum up: ZoneAlarm Security Suite 2010 is a program that will work well to protect your computer from the traditional standpoint of security threats. However, it is resource intensive and can slow the performance of even the fastest computers. Also, the program does not do a great job of blocking malware based infections. This is a so-so program to purchase. Check your other options before purchasing it.
