"It does what it says on the tin!"

What do you like best?

We don't have a very complicated computer system, it is essentially a regular laptop hooked up to a desktop monitor (small business in it's early stages) so this keeps the viruses out, warns us when something is a potential threat. This is SO important for us as we store vital statistics info on here.

What do you dislike?

Not much I dislike. Pop up warnings can be annoying but that's a necessary evil with a firewall.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Worthwhile product, very reasonable price. I know free software is great, but it's worth spending a few dollars to cover all your bases, especially if you'll be using this on a computer where you store personal information.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We store extremely sensitive personal information on our computer, and again where it's just a regular computer it's SO easy to get viruses and this works really well to prevent that from happening. It keeps our clients personal information safe, which is essential!

"Reliable Firewall Services From a Trusted Leader in the Industry"

What do you like best?

With its easy-to-understand at a glance user interface and feature rich services, Zone Alarm provides reliable services that compliment their antivirus product seamlessly so you can keep your computer safe from malware, bots, viruses, keyloggers, script injectors, and worms.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, the interface is a bit dated for an enterprise product. UX and navigation needs to be brought farther into the 21st Century, design-wise as at first glance it looks a bit unprofessional.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helps keeps my and my associates computers safe from a large variety of router injected and web based malware, in addition to viruses, worms, etc.

What Mobile Data Security solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"ZoneAlarm is one of the best Firewalls available"

What do you like best?

There is a free version which allows you to really test the software, and has all the features you need to be protected. The paid version is very affordable and includes updates and protection from viruses like WannaCry and other exploits.

What do you dislike?

The application on older/slower computers is a bit heavy and runs slowly, but for newer computers or server installations it is great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are lots of options, make sure this one implements well with other software and test it using the free trial first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping the sevrers/ users safe and allowing monitoring of small groups.

"ZoneAlarm Firewall and Antivirus Program"

What do you like best?

I really like the configurability of the software. I found that it gave me ample features, and the opportunity to easily suit my needs.

What do you dislike?

I found the software to be overly cautious, and sometimes bogged my system down. It is definitely intended for more advanced users (basic knowledge can still use basic features), which is valuable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'm not sure why, but they made a move to a different solutions. Perhaps IT department preferred the functionalities of another tool in contrast to this one...

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's security and safety. There's really not much more to the purpose.

"Works like advertised!"

What do you like best?

It works better than any other firewall we have used so far. A lot of the programs we use, are given false positives on other programs, but Zone Alarm doesn't have this problem. Keeps our computers safe from the real threats

What do you dislike?

Often we still get a lot of pop ups which can be slightly annoying, but better to have them then have viruses.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You won't be disappointed with this great firewall and its many features!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It keeps our databases safe which contain countless information, and it does this at a very reasonable price.
