FirewallBy default, Windows® 7 includes an Inbound Firewall. Their system supports an Outbound firewall that will not work by default. ZoneAlarm's #1 Firewall has taken Firewall technology a step further by automatically including Inbound, Outbound and the highly specialized OSFirewall™. The OSFirewall™ is crucial since it guards suspicious behavior all the way down to the operating system level. This technology is what sets our Firewall apart from the rest.
BrowserWindows 7 IE8 only blocks known dangerous websites and downloads. It will not block new sites and downloads, or prevent drive-by downloads and browser exploits from harming your PC. All of these important browser security features plus more are included in our award-winning ZoneAlarm® Extreme Security or ZoneAlarm® ForceField™.
AntivirusAn independent study by av-test.org found that even the best antivirus engines miss over 30% of 'dynamic' (new) virus threats. This is true for any standalone antivirus solution, from Microsoft or anyone else. The ZoneAlarm OS Firewal™ was built to combat this threat - it catches suspicious and unauthorized activity on your PC, thus protecting you from dynamic virus threats.
SummaryMicrosoft has made a much anticipated new operating system. However, the hackers will continue to find ways to bypass whatever security measures the operating system puts in place. Operating systems, by their nature, do not evolve as quickly as threats do.
Your best bet at maintaining complete PC protection is to invest in an advanced security solution.
