There are two distinct systems that an antivirus program usually targets, which include the Operating System and the Internet. In cases where the level of vulnerability is high, one might go ahead and acquire a personal firewall that performs advanced blocking of phishing infiltrators. It also denies programs permission from linking to the web, if the latter platform is suspicious. The leading such program available now is ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus +. It is best for monitoring the system against stealthy malware and also creating zones in a system. These zones are for commanding inward or outward access from or to other programs.
The following specifications make this antivirus unquestionably effective in its monitoring work:
• Divisions of monitoring. These include Trusted Zone/Server and Internet Zone/Server. The latter two need special authorization from the software to download from, or launch an existing computer application onto, the web.
• Trust Vector Internet Monitor carries out the function of securing the entire network system of the computer, as far as accessing the web is concerned. It perpetually quarantines traffic from the Internet, creates firewalls where necessary and notifies on hacking attempts.
• OSFirewall, on the other hand, is a specification that one can obtain through an upgraded version of this security software. It offers core surveillance against malware inside the system. It is also a great notification medium on any stealthy occurrence on a running or offline program.
• One can also go for an extra appendage to the above features, by the name of SmartDefense. It provides prompts just like Windows alerts function on a Personal Computer. In short, it offers counsel on the trustworthiness of various applications.
Comodo is another personal firewall that can get on the same platform as the one under consideration because they both work on Windows OS. Here is the major difference: While both can work side by side and also supplement the level of security that Windows’ existing firewall already provides, Comodo creates a greater number of warnings that can sometimes annoy or bring down processing power of the machine. The one under review, on the other hand, pops up an alert when necessary.
Just like its appellation suggests, this program is a plus for anyone who not only wants to protect data but needs perpetual advice from artificial intelligence on the latest threats. This is why this program deserves a 5 out of 5 rating. Secondly, though the program has complex functions, it makes things easy by having a simple interface. This includes the segmentation of the various ‘zones’ of command that derive from either being trustworthy or suspicious.
