The Internet is plagued with a magnitude of threats that can cause serious damage to your PC. Simply surfing the web and visiting websites make you vulnerable and put you at risk of an attack. While having an antivirus is a good step towards protecting your PC, having security that can stop threats cold in their tracks, even before they reach your browser, is a huge advantage.
Introducing ZoneAlarm Enhanced Browser Protection!*
ZoneAlarm Enhanced Browser Protection protects you from web threats and drive-by-downloads before they ever reach your browser. This is thanks to two core features: Web Scanning and URL Filtering. We’ll explain a little more about what each feature does to ensure your protection.
Web Scanning protects you at the browser level by scanning for malware in the scripts, files, and packed executables transferred to your computer over HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol). Files are scanned for malware directly within the network and eliminates threats before they reach your local drive, a user-specified location, or a temporary file.
Example of Web Scanning at work:
URL Filtering prevents you from accessing dangerous websites by checking to see if the URL you’ve requested is listed in a continuously updated database of malicious URLs. If an exact or similar match is found, URL Filtering alerts you and stops malware from ever reaching your browser. In addition, any downloads initiated by you or an external program are immediately stopped.
Example of URL Filtering at work:
The additional layer of security you get when you combine ZoneAlarm Enhanced Browser Protection with a powerful antivirus and the World’s #1 Firewall makes you a force to be reckoned with in the fight against evolving threats!
*= Enhanced Browser Protection is only available in ZoneAlarm Pro Antivirus + Firewall, ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite, and ZoneAlarm Extreme Security.
