Antivirus is not enough
Many consumers today rely solely on antivirus software, and that’s just not enough to keep your PC safe. Did you know antivirus software misses almost 30% of viruses? And it does not provide any protection against hackers.
According to Rob Ayoub, CISSP and Global Director for Frost & Sullivan’s Information Security Practice, the use of free security software has exploded in the past few of years, and Frost & Sullivan has seen a dangerous shift towards only free antivirus software.
“More than 200 million people today use free antivirus software without a strong 2-way firewall, which leaves the majority of users more vulnerable than when they used a premium security suite,” said Ayoub.
At a “minimum”, consumers need to strengthen their security by adding a strong, two-way firewall on top of their antivirus software. Because if you don’t have a firewall, it’s basically like leaving your home with the doors unlocked and the windows open, according to Michael Calce, the hacker once known as “Mafiaboy”.
We are providing a free and effective solution!
Our 2012 firewall has a new user interface, making it very easy to use. Once installed, it works automatically and quietly in the background. It monitors both incoming and outgoing traffic to and from a PC and the Internet – blocking hackers from getting into a PC and stopping them from sending out information and attacks.
How it works: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall renders a PC invisible to hackers, preventing them from gaining access to a user’s computer and stealing information. And when malware, such as spyware or bots, bypasses AV software and infects a user’s PC, our firewall’s unique “outbound” protection kicks in. Outbound protection stops thieves from sending stolen information back to its host servers and distributing attacks or spam to the PC owner’s contacts.
While other firewalls create too many confusing alerts or, like the default Windows firewall, provide only partial protection, our new firewall simplifies the experience for all users. It is powered by ZoneAlarm DefenseNet™, a proven 3rd generation cloud-based service. ZoneAlarm DefenseNet automatically verifies the safety of a program by analyzing data from more than 60 million users through the cloud, eliminating overwhelming alerts and interruptions.
