ZoneAlarm Pro 3
.0"> ZoneAlarm Pro 3.0
Those wanting a state-of-the-art firewall will find just that in ZoneAlarm Pro. However, it lacks anti-virus and intrusion detection features and so isnt a complete solution.
LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // A firewall alone is inadequate client protection, and companies need to plan on how to combine firewall, anti-virus, intrusion detection and privacy features into an integrated security management strategy. PROS // Detailed traffic rules for both inbound and outbound traffic; checks for binary tampering for programs and program components; strong ad-blocking and other privacy features. CONS // No intrusion detection or anti-virus features; program-based firewall rules can only be specified by port number, not by destination IP address; ad blocking sometimes results in invalid HTML and misses some ads.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Ad-blocking features (especially pop-up window blocking) reduce user frustration when using the Web.
