Comodo / Zone Alarm (XP/Vista)

September 7, 2008

Another major component of securing your new computer is a decent firewall, which tracks incoming and outgoing data when you’re online. Windows has a built-in firewall, but it doesn’t go as far to protect your computer as a dedicated firewall application. It also doesn’t allow you the same level of control that you’ll get from the third party options. If you’re going to be out connecting to open Wi-Fi networks with your new laptop, then upgrading to a stronger firewall is a necessity.

Both Comodo and Zone Alarm offer free, top notch firewall products for personal use and we honestly couldn’t choose one over the other. So try one out. Or try them both, but just promise us that you won’t even think about logging on at your local coffee shop with out installing one of these.

Comodo Firewall Pro is aimed to secure your system against internal attacks such as Trojan viruses / malicious software and external attacks by hackers. Safeguard your personal data through a simple user friendly single click interface offering full immunity to attack. Comodo Firewall Pro helps you connect in a
secure way to the internet and global networks.

ZoneAlarm is designed to protect your DSL- or cable-connected PC from hackers. This program includes four interlocking security services: a firewall, an application control, an Internet lock, and Zones. The firewall controls the door to your computer and allows only traffic you understand and initiate. The Internet lock blocks Internet traffic while your computer is unattended or while you’re not using the Internet, and it can be activated automatically with your computer’s screensaver or after a set period of inactivity. Zones monitor all activity on your computer and alert you when a new application attempts to access the Internet. Version 7.0.483 is a bug fixing release.

Note:ZoneAlarm is free for individual and not-for-profit charitable entity use (excluding governmental entities and educational institutions). Advanced features are available.
