ZoneAlarm Pro includes five interconnected protection services that form an easy-to-use all-round protection.

Unlike any other security utility, ZoneAlarm includes a network security system (firewall), Internet blocking, application control and dynamically assigned security levels and zones.

Combining these elements gives you the strongest protection against threats.

- easy-to-use firewall blocks hackers and other unknown threats. Invisibility mode automatically makes your PC invisible to anyone on the Internet;

- keeps personal data safe, deletes adware cookies, blocks pop-ups, advertisements, and more;

- Quarantine for suspicious email attachments and blocking of virus messages.

Supported mail protocols:

- POP3 (inbound only) - available in ZoneAlarm products;

- SMTP (outgoing only) - not available in free ZoneAlarm;

- HTTP (Junk email filtering in conjunction with Outlook or Outlook Express) - only available in ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite;

- IMAP4 (inbound only) - IMAP4 is not available for virus scan. - Only ZoneAlarm Antivirus and ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite are supported.

Supported browsers:

- Internet Explorer 5.5, 6.0 SP1, 6.0 SP2 7.0 SP2;

- Netscape Navigator 7.2, 8.0 Beta;

- FireFox 1.00 and higher;

Looks to be a great security option, however, my preferred internet browsers are not supported by this product. I would consider permanently switching to firefox from chrome for this product after I experiment with it for about a week or so.
