ZoneAlarm is a product developed by Zone Labs L.L.C and Checkpoint Software Technologies Inc., a subsidiary of Checkpoint Software Technologies Ltd. With over 80 million users worldwide, ZoneAlarm is known as one of the most secure antivirus providers on the market, protecting against all forms of malware, spyware, and identity theft. Their latest all-inclusive product, Extreme Security, has all of the features any internet user would need and more.
Plans & Pricing
The ZoneAlarm Extreme Security suite can fit up to 3 PCs, with pricing depending on the number of subscription plan years in question.
There are a number of features that make ZoneAlarm 2016 Extreme Security unique and more appealing than other antivirus products.
With over 300,000 new threats launched by cybercriminals every day, it’s almost impossible for antivirus programs to detect and stop every new virus that reaches your computer. Threat Emulation changes that by allowing you to check files before you open them. Once you download a file from an email or website, simply scan it by Extreme Security. The Threat Emulation feature will open your file on a cloud PC and see how it behaves there, warning you immediately if anything suspicious is detected.
Find My Laptop
The name says it all. Once activated, users can locate their laptop if it is ever stolen or lost and even lock strangers out remotely. To make things even more convenient, you can access your stolen laptop remotely to recover important files.
PC Tune Up
Optimizes your PC’s performance by removing unused and unneeded files in your registry and cleaning out temporary files to free up disk space.
Additional features include parental control, advanced firewall, online backup, and a privacy toolbar.
Ease of use
The ZoneAlarm Extreme Security suite has a very simple and easy to understand design. The 3 main categories are on the home screen: Antivirus & Firewall, Web & Privacy, and Mobility & Data. Users can click any one of these to see all of the features in each category and turn them on or off, or edit the advanced settings. Navigation is very intuitive and simple and users aren’t required to have a technical background to use the more advanced features and settings. That being said, they don’t have to. Extreme Security already has all of its important features turned on when installed for maximum protection. When installing, users can choose between two modes: Max Security Mode for manual control of all of the features and settings, or Auto Learn, which configures settings based on the user’s behavior.
