Protection against Drive by ZoneAlarm Free


Hi Abbigailantonia,

ZoneAlarm is one of the most shining names as a firewall software. The program comes in three versions which you can get from the website, Free Firewall, Pro Firewall, and Internet Security Suite .

Both the Free and the pro firewall versions doesn't offer an antivirus/antispyware functionality and the only version that offers such protection is the Internet Security Suite which you can buy from the website.

Another features are present in the Internet security suite version such as Parental control which Filters and blocks inappropriate websites.  and Advanced Download Protection which Warns you if you try to download a dangerous program. Not to mention a 24/7 live chat support and free latest version upgrades.
