Modern medicine is overwhelmingly reactive rather than proactive. How expensive that model is! If everyone only got sick and then sought medical assistance, we could not afford the bill. The reasoning here is similar to why you change the oil in your car rather than wait to fix a blown engine. This is also why we try to vaccinate or inoculate against as many diseases as possible. Everyone knows the motto: “Prevention is better than cure.”
PC security follows the same rule. Prevention is everything. Intruders must be barricaded before they succeed to access your computer. That’s exactly where firewall protection steps in. No single product or service will provide you with unconditional security, but a firewall is one of the cornerstones of any network security strategy.
Think of it as the electronic equivalent of a sentry at the gate. It inspects all the data passing in or out of the network, ensuring that the traffic is legitimate. When properly configured, a firewall should allow your users access to all the resources they need while still keeping out any malicious users or programs.
ZoneAlarm is proud to be a global reference in firewall protection. As the very first personal firewall ever created for home PCs, its award-winning technology is one of the most powerful applications of its kind in the market.
ZoneAlarm’s firewall uses the same technology of Check Point’s iconic firewall, which is the foundation for most network security technology today. Developed by its CEO Gil Shwed, who is considered the founding father of the modern firewall, it provides the industry’s strongest level of gateway security and identity awareness.
So… do you still think that PC users like you cannot count on the same powerful technology to protect big companies’ computers? This is past. ZoneAlarm protects you and another 100 million home PC users and small businesses with the same technology that it protects all Fortune 500 companies with.
Speaking of which, let’s take companies as an example. Educating employees towards prevention means transforming than into “human firewalls.” All it takes is just one human element in the system to compromise everything. This is valid for both corporate and home environments. ZoneAlarm Pro Firewall is a powerful first line of defense to block hackers and intruders from accessing your PC by monitoring programs for suspicious behavior stopping new attacks that bypass traditional antivirus.
Antiviruses help to protect you against unwanted programs. Firewalls help to keep external threats from getting access to your system in the first place. There are worms traveling through email and worms traveling from computer to computer without the knowledge of the user. The user will never know that their system has been compromised because the threat enters their computer quietly.
This is where a firewall can help protect you, by monitoring all network traffic, identifying, and blocking unwanted traffic to prevent attackers from easily inserting themselves into your computer.
Does it look scary? Frightening? The best way to be safe is to stand as a human firewall and take all the security procedures. But a strong, pioneering and globally acknowledged champion firewall software needs to be part of your overall plan for computer security.
Block intruders in real time with the world’s #1 personal firewall. ZoneAlarm Pro Firewall also protects you against phishing attacks, when cyber criminals try to steal your credentials by pretending to be trustworthy websites. Additionally, your identity is shielded with exclusive data encryption.
With ZoneAlarm Pro Firewall, you can get make yourself invisible to hackers and enjoy the peace of mind you deserve.
