Default Check Point Rolls New ZoneAlarm Antivirus and Firewall Protection into a Pro Bono Package

Check Point appears to be on a mission to prove you don't need to pay for full-fledged PC security, a motto that sits well with Maximum PC readers and enthusiasts in general. Starting today, you can download Check Point's ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall 2013, purportedly "the most complete free Internet security solution for consumers," at absolutely no charge. You can't beat the price, but can you beat the security?

That's something we look forward to testing. In the meantime, some key features include a robust antivirus and spyware scan engine that scans, detects, and removes both known and unknown malware, including nasty rootkits; two-way firewall that monitors both inbound and outbound traffic; an 'OSFirewall' that monitors behaviors within a PC to root out sophisticated attacks that typically evade AV scanners; identity theft protection; anti-phishing protection; and online backups.

"Most consumers are unwittingly making themselves an easy target for cyber criminals," said Bari Abdul, Vice President and Head of ZoneAlarm, Check Point Software Technologies consumer business. "They lack a strong 2-way firewall, are unwilling or unable to pay for security, or they just have left their security on the backburner. People are putting themselves at serious risk by not having minimum security, which at least includes a firewall and antivirus software. Itís basically like leaving your home with the doors unlocked."

"By making ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall free and convenient, we hope to spur a widespread Internet security movement that will help consumers better protect themselves from dangerous predators lurking online," continued Abdul. "This movement will in-turn help provide a more secure experience for all PC users."

ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall 2013 is free for individuals and not-for-profit charitable organizations. It's available to download here.
