All-in-One Software: Checkpoint
Check Point continues to bring innovation to the anti-virus industry with their ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 7. No longer affiliated with it's longtime partner CA, ZoneAlarm has now teamed up with Kaspersky and the award winning anti-spam vendor MailFrontier to create a security suite that goes far behind many competing brands. Out of all the quality anti-virus solutions on the market, few of them match-up to overall balance and ease of use that comes along with ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 7.
Installation and Setup
With an installation file of only 32 MB, this ZoneAlarm product installs without any problems. After restarting the system, a wizard will guide you through a series of questions in order to set up the program. Here you will be able to make adjustments to the control security settings and configure an Auto-Learn option to receive real-time training. You can also enable ZoneAlarm protection that enables you to manage all security settings from the program interface.
The ZoneAlarm interface consists of a high positioned status bar that communicates program details without the annoying clutter of too many icons. The main features remain visible along the left side of the interface. To the right, you will find helpful tabs that provide additional information on the features. The interface is easily customized, allowing you to configure the firewall to automatically block content or question the identity of each program. This is a huge advantage over rival software that gives the user trouble by assigning a complex set of rules for granting access.
Overview of Features
ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 7 provides you with all the tools needed to keep your computer safe. This extraordinary program is also designed to keep your personal information and identity secure when surfing the web. The brand new Auto-Learn system helps you to configure your firewall much faster to prompt better results. There is also a new feature that allows you to configure security settings on applications previously installed.
There are many new improved features that come included with ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 7. The software is equipped with a better defense against spyware and real-world protection against various types of identity theft. These key features alone are enough to justify the price of Checkpoint's latest security suite.
Checkpoint provides much improved virus protection by using technology based on Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6. The scanner is efficient at blocking infections and is able to scan files in a very short amount of time.
While many programs are abandoning the feature, ZoneAlarm Internet Security includes a Parental Control setting that is easily recognizable to the left of the program interface. The only features that appear to be missing from this software is a handy file shredder and backup utility. Though it also lacks a printable help tutorial, Checkpoint makes up for it with flash manuals that show vast improvement over past editions.
ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite offers some of the best system protection available today. The program combines high-quality features and ease of use. This software is always functioning while allowing you to work without interruption.
