Zonealarm Free Fixed

Protects against tricks that malicious software can use to bypass personal firewall as it loads potentially malicious DLLs into a trusted application, bypassing application control and accessing the network freely.

Zonealarm Free

Download Zip:

The free edition leaves out a lot of 'premium protections', including web and email monitoring, network file scanning, mailbox file scanning, and real-time cloud protection to keep you safe from the very latest threats. This isn't quite as bad as it seems, because even if the program doesn't check for threats in an email attachment or a download, it should pick them up when you access them as files. It's still a concern, though, and these aren't restrictions we've often seen in other free antivirus apps.

The commercial ZoneAlarm Pro Antivirus & Firewall restores these protections and adds others, including anti-phishing and free online support, including 24/7 live chat. It's relatively cheap, too at an initial $24.95 for a one-year, one PC license, $39.95 on renewal.

ZoneAlarm's identity theft protection feature is actually a free one-year subscription to Identity Guard's Good Start plan, a simple service which enables daily monitoring of your credit bureau file, raises alerts about any significant changes and gives you unlimited toll-free support. It's only available to US users, unfortunately, but if you don't have any similar service it could justify installing ZoneAlarm Free all on its own.

An odd mix of tools which doesn't really need to exist. You want Kaspersky antivirus, install Kaspersky Free - it's more up-to-date and complete, and you can add ZoneAlarm's free firewall if necessary.

Enlisting ZoneAlarm to protect your PC is a simple matter of downloading and running the free installer, which in turn downloads the latest application code. Like Norton and others, ZoneAlarm downloads the most recent antivirus signatures as part of the installation process.

Tested with the same set of samples, Norton earned a perfect 100% detection rating and scored 9.9 points. Emsisoft Anti-Malware, Malwarebytes, and Sophos detected 100% of the previous sample set. It's worth noting that ZoneAlarm PRO NextGen Antivirus + Firewall fared much better than the free edition, coming in just behind Norton with 9.8 points.

The firewall built into Windows 10 does a fine job of foiling port scans and other web-based attacks. It doesn't include the companion program control found in the few remaining third-party personal firewalls, but that's not important to everyone. We're left unconvinced that you actually need a personal firewall. But when it comes free with your free antivirus, it's a nice addition.

Since this is the next generation of free ZoneAlarm protection, you might expect some new and different features. However, the reverse is true. As noted, Application Control is on hiatus until the fall. The identity and data protection features have also fallen by the wayside.

You used to get a free year of simple identity protection with ZoneAlarm, supplied by partner Identity Guard. This included daily credit monitoring with one bureau, ID verification alerts, and account takeover alerts. Identity Guard has evolved, and ZoneAlarm no longer offers its services.

Check Point ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus NextGen has evolved since my last review, but not entirely in a good way. It now uses homegrown antivirus code instead of licensing from Kaspersky, but tests suggest Kaspersky is a better choice. The firewall's robust self-protection capabilities are back, but its Application Control system remains absent for now. And this free edition still lacks protection against malware-hosting websites. The new, bright user interface is a definite improvement, but not enough to save this fading product.

Identity and Data Protection In ZoneAlarm's Identity & Data page, you'll find a number of additional ways to protect your security. For starters, you can activate 5GB of online backup hosted by ZoneAlarm partner IDrive. Of course, you could get the same free 5GB directly from IDrive. Note that the commercial IDrive($15.90 For First Year at IDrive)(Opens in a new window) is a PCMag Editors' Choice for online backup.

Identity Guard, another ZoneAlarm partner, provides a year of free, simple identity protection. Once you sign up and enter your details, it alerts you to events like identity verification and possible account takeover. You also get access to identity theft assistance.

On September 2, 2010, the free version of ZoneAlarm started showing a "Global Virus Alert" popup as a scareware tactic to get users to switch to their paid security suite.[9] The popup was turned off by ZoneAlarm marketing team after an uproar from disgruntled users, many of whom uninstalled the software.[10][11]

One thing you have to understand before continuing is that there is a big difference between the ZoneAlarm Free Firewall and the ZoneAlarm Pro or Extreme version. The free version does not come with public network protection or wireless network protection. The free version also does not give you real-time security updates. According to the ZoneAlarm website ZoneAlarm Free Version gives you is the ability to hide your open ports using "Full Stealth Mode" and it will alert you and block suspicious traffic. ZoneAlarm Free will also receive updates when new security threats are found and disable all malware it detects.

Once you have decided to download the free version of ZoneAlarm you are shown a screen similar to the one below. You have the choice to use a Quick Install or a Custom Install. I found out while playing around with this firewall that there is a big difference between these two installation methods.

By clicking the Set up button to the right of Identity Protection you are taken to another page where you have the ability to Activate/Manage the Identity Protection Service. Doing this takes you to the ZoneAlarm web page. Then when you click the get protected now button it takes you to a third-party site titled Identity Guard. This is not a review of Identity Guard, however the very little research I did revealed nothing sketchy. Depending on how much of a conspiracy theorist you are you may or may not want to set up this part of the firewall. I would have to really be convinced before giving out my social security number and bank information to an unknown entity on the Internet. It is also noteworthy that ZoneAlarm advertises free credit monitoring but it's only for one year. If you want to continue you have to pay.

Finally, the last feature of ZoneAlarm we are covering is the Online Backup feature. For ZoneAlarm Free Firewall you receive 5GB of free online backup space. If you require more it is, of course, going to cost you extra.

Depending on what you want out of a firewall, ZoneAlarm may be exactly what you are looking for. ZoneAlarm can be an extremely quiet firewall. The Pro and Extreme series have a lot of perks you don't get with the free version of ZoneAlarm. That said, trying the free version is a great way to find out if you like it before you decide to buy the Pro or Extreme series for nearly $60 /year.

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP) has today announced the launch of its ZoneAlarm Web Secure Free solution, giving users 100% free protection against phishing attacks, malicious downloads and dangerous websites.

ZoneAlarm (, a world leader in consumer cyber security solutions, is the consumer product line of Check Point Software Technologies, Inc. With more than 100 million downloads, ZoneAlarm protects PCs and mobile devices from viruses, spyware, hackers and identity theft. The award-winning cybersecurity product line is installed in consumer and small business PCs and mobile devices worldwide, protecting them from cyber threats. Check Point Software Technologies, Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.

Pro Antivirus and Firewall is available for one and two years (with options to cover 1 or 5 PCs) while Extreme Security is also available for 3 months. Both products are available for free 30-day trials and the company accepts major credit cards in addition to PayPal.

ZoneAlarm is the oldest, the most popular, and the most downloaded free firewall software available for Windows. ZoneAlarm displays five banners in its installer while it is downloading and installing the product on your computer. These five images tell you everything that you need to know about this wonderful program.

Zone Labs offers a free and paid version of the firewall that can be bought separately from the main packages. It is excellent at blocking unwanted traffic, turning you into a digital shadow, and protecting sensitive data. Plus, it allows the user to control access of various apps to the Internet. By monitoring all traffic (both incoming and outgoing), the ZoneAlarm Firewall guards you against malware and thieves that are trying to steal personal data.

ZoneAlarm is an old and trusted name in the field of computer security. Its free personal firewall has been popular for years, and now, it has decided to step up its game: Its latest product takes the solid foundation of the free firewall, and adds a free antivirus on top. With this move, ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall competes directly against Microsoft Security Essentials and the built-in Windows firewall. PCWorld has not yet tested this product's effectiveness, but I sat down with the software to evaluate its features.
