Internet Security Antivirus Program and Firewall Protection

Malware. An odd sounding word created to lump all malicious software programs, including viruses, worms, trojans, spyware, adware, and other malevolent codes into one cause-your-computer-serious-hurt category.

Malware causes financial losses

In 2005, Computer Economics released a report on malware. The good news was that for the first time since 2002, the total worldwide financial losses from malware actually declined to a mere $14.2 billion. The bad news was that the nature of malware was changing from overt threats to more focused, covert attacks. This definitely is not great news for the average computer user just trying to keep up with the hundreds of malware programs that bombard us daily.

Zone Alarm protection

It’s not an easy task keeping malware out of your computer system. In order to accomplish this, you need a strong antivirus program. One such program that can deliver the goods is Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite 6 from Zone Labs. Zone Labs is one of the most trusted brands in Internet Security for good reason. Their product, simply put, kicks serious malware gluteus maximus.

Zone Alarm has received more review recommendations that any other Internet-security software suite because of its superb firewall and antivirus protection. It blocks pop-up ads, protects against identify theft and provides adequate spam filters that are flexible. It even beats the market leader, Norton Internet Security, which is often criticized for excessive system drag.

ZoneAlarm features

Its newest version includes these additional features:

» Triple Defense Firewall

This defense firewall is to prevent spyware from sending your information across the Internet. It also makes your computer invisible to anyone on the Net.

» Smart Defense Advisor

The Smart Defense Advisor can automatically adjust your security settings for maximum protection against the latest virus and spyware outbreaks.

» Advanced Identify and Privacy Protection

This identity and privacy protection feature is there to prevent your personal data from leaving your computer without your approval.

Easy to understand interface

The bonus for the average user who cringes at the idea of setting-up one of these systems is that Zone Alarm interface is easier to understand and use in comparison to most if its competitors. If you choose to venture beyond the out-of-the-box default settings, and install a more elaborate filtering, know that this will require some additional time to set up on your part.

Overall, Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite is a user-friendly, comprehensive security solution that will have your computer safe from Internet hazards and cyber criminals within minutes of installation.
