Check Point launches free ZoneAlarm Antivirus + Firewall
Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. has announced the availability of ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall 2013, a complete free Internet security solution for consumers, which is now available for download.

ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall combines the well known ZoneAlarm firewall with antivirus into one easy-to-use product that protects consumers against hackers, viruses, spyware, and other malware.

The ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall offers a multi-layered defense when it comes to protecting consumers against already identified and new threats. The productís firewall and antivirus protection are designed and road-tested to work seamlessly and efficiently together, eliminating any compatibility problems and simplifying the entire security experience for consumers.

ďMost consumers are unwittingly making themselves an easy target for cyber criminals,Ē said Bari Abdul, Vice President and Head of ZoneAlarm, Check Point Software Technologies consumer business. ďThey lack a strong 2way firewall, are unwilling or unable to pay for security, or they just have left their security on the backburner. People are putting themselves at serious risk by not having minimum security, which at least includes a
firewall and antivirus software. Itís basically like leaving your home with the doors unlocked.Ē

ZoneAlarmís 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 malevolent activities that threaten web security. This functionality is powered by ZoneAlarm DefenseNet, a 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, ZoneAlarmís antivirus engine scans, detects, and removes any malicious programs from a userís PC. To further insulate a userís system, ZoneAlarmís OSFirewall adds an additional layer of protection by spotting and stopping any suspicious behavior and new attacks.

ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall features include an Advanced Download Protection that analyses downloads and warns if a download is malicious, stopping it from infecting a userís PC. It also provides Identity Theft Protection, Anti-Phishing/Site Status Toolbar and Online Backup.
