ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 6.5.
With the launch, the award-winning all-in-one ZoneAlarm Interact Security Suite 6.5 becomes the first suite to address the three most common forms of identity theft facing consumers: PC attacks such as viruses, keyloggers and other forms of spyware; sophisticated Internet hacking of major corporations storing customer data; and traditional real-world identity theft such as dumpster diving. Other new features included Spy Site Blocking, a new Game Mode, and strengthened anti-spyware and OSFirewall features to protect consumers against the widest spectrum of security, threats.
"Internet security is no longer only about protecting your PC, it's about protecting you," said Laura Yecies, Check Point vice president and general manager of the consumer and small business division. "Identity theft is a real-world danger that has mushroomed with the proliferation of the Internet. But repairing the damage to your finances and credit is not as easy as cleaning your hard drive. By adding proactive identity theft prevention to our suite, we're making it easy and convenient for our customers to avoid becoming a victim."
New ZoneAlarm Security, Suite 6.5 Features: Identity Theft Protection: proactively defends consumers through an innovative combination of new technologies, easy access to online tools and consumer education. Users receive an alert if their credit card number appears on the Internet's black market or other black lists, can opt-out of the pre-approved credit offers that are a major source of real-world identity theft, and have access to a credit counseling service. Users may also visit the new ZoneAlarm Identity Protection Center, a Web site full of educational tips and links to government and industry resources directly from their ZoneAlarm user interface.
The service complements ZoneAlarm's desktop features that prevent identity theft including its world renowned firewall that prevents unauthorized access to your PC, anti-spyware that protects your private information, OSFirewall that blocks even the sneakiest of spyware, anti-span technology that protects against phishing and pharming attacks, and the suite's advanced privacy features. Also included is ZoneAlarm's IDLock technology which allows a user to prevent credit card and social security numbers or other private data from being sent off their PC without their consent.
Customers may also choose to sign-up for regular credit monitoring, ID theft insurance and more for an additional charge. ID Theft Protection is also included in ZoneAlarm Pro 6.5, the company's advanced firewall-plus-anti-spyware-plus-privacy software aimed at consumers with an existing antivirus solution.
