In a recent edition of the Ottawa PC
News, I wrote a review of BlackICE
Defender. Since that review, a new product has come
onto the market from ZoneLabs called Zone Alarm 2.0. I
guess they took a page from the dBase book that debuted
with dBase II.
Steve Gibson, of SpinRite fame, says,
"My fingers are crossed, the dust is still settling
and the paint is still wet. It's too early to tell for sure, but
it looks like Zone Alarm 2.0 (ZA) will be the perfect and
ultimate personal firewall for the typical Internet user!
And it's 100% free for the individual user!
He goes on to say; "I am using it
right now - and nothing else! - on my personal system,
and so far I love it! I think ZA combines the best of all
worlds and eclipses every other firewall ever created."
You can read more about what Steve thinks
and you can download the program from the ZoneLabs site (http://www.zonelabs.com)
or PUB II (ZONALM20.EXE in the Miscellaneous Applications
Zone Alarm (Freeware)
