» Norton Internet Security 2006
Norton Internet Security 2006 incorporates Symantec's firewall, antivirus, antispyware, and antispam solutions along with parental control and personal-data protection. The new Norton Protection Center (NPC) reports on the health of all Norton Internet Security (NIS) modules and several Norton System Works (NSW) modules. To clear up problems reported by NPC, you simply click on a Fix Now selection. A powerful antivirus and tough firewall are just the start of this package's many features. But this heaping load of features does come at a price—it's slow to install and scan, and it's occasionally unresponsive. Norton Protection Center monitors status. Firewall blocks hackers and leak tests, resists direct attack, handles multiple networks. Parental Control can link to Windows accounts or not. Blocked installation of all test spyware; removed most test spyware. Installation and scan are slow; product unresponsive at times. Problems installing on infested systems. May require manual spyware removal. Antispam accuracy has declined. Parental Control can erroneously lock out all users.

» ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 2006
Along with its effective and easy-to-use firewall and additional security features, this new version of ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite brings mostly solid antispyware protection to the table. ZoneAlarm's wizard makes configuring a firewall incredibly easy. The application's stylish interface and simple slider controls make maintaining and updating settings a snap. The app now boasts an ultra secure triple-layer firewall, which safeguards your machine's OS and Registry. Experts will appreciate options that let them set up custom rules. The program's Zones feature also allows you to assign different security levels for local networks and the Internet. We found ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite to be very good at recognizing and automatically including settings for our local network, and it also can automatically detect wireless machines. In all our tests, the firewall guarded against all external and internal threats it encountered.
Beyond the firewall function, ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite includes an antivirus scanner based on Computer Associates' Vet Anti-Virus. You also get a cookie cleaner, an ad blocker, a pop-up stopper, and new antispwyare tools. Happily, the app offers both real-time protection against malware as well as a scanning engine. In our tests, spyware scans were blisteringly fast and almost always accurate, though ZoneAlarm Pro did leave a few minor traces that some dedicated utilities removed. The real-time module also fared pretty well, but we wish it offered more information on potential threats from directly within the program. Elsewhere, we like the privacy-protection features, which let you apply settings individually to different Web sites. The ID Lock feature stores personal information, such as social security and credit card numbers. Internet Security Suite is the only version of ZoneAlarm to incorporate a basic filter that blocks sites according to various types of content; you can configure it to block various types of naughtiness or just one category, such as racist material. Security Suite also incorporates the company's IMSecurity program, which protects instant-messenging programs from spam and encrypts messages (so long as the person on the other end also is using IMSecurity). Users looking for one solution to almost all their Internet-security concerns can turn to ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite.

Elsewhere, we like the configuration options for the privacy-protection features, which let you individually apply settings to different Web sites. The ID Lock feature, which lets users specify what information the firewall should prevent from being sent out via the Web or e-mail, also is a nice touch. With a tougher firewall and the addition of antispyware tools, this excellent program just keeps improving.

» ZoneAlarm Antivirus 2006
Along with its effective and easy-to-use firewall protection, ZoneAlarm with Antivirus adds virus features and security controls. The most notable improvement in this latest release is an enhanced triple-layer firewall, which now safeguards your machine's OS and Registry. ZoneAlarm's wizard makes configuring a firewall incredibly easy. Maintaining and updating settings also is a snap when using the application's stylish interface and its simple slider controls. Experts will appreciate options that let them set up custom rules. The program's Zones feature also allows you to assign different security levels for a local network and for the Internet. We found ZoneAlarm with Antivirus very good at recognizing and automatically including settings for our local network. In all our tests, the firewall guarded against all external and internal threats it encountered.
Beyond the firewall function, ZoneAlarm with Antivirus includes an antivirus scanner, based on Computer Associates' Vet Anti-Virus, that blocks both incoming and outgoing viruses. The most intriguing aspect of this feature is its Advanced Heuristic Detection algorithm, which uses behavior analysis to detect suspicious actions caused by brand-new viruses that haven't yet made it into the virus-definitions database. Though this version of ZoneAlarm lacks the privacy and identity features of the Pro version, users who are satisfied with their existing privacy-protection tools may find ZoneAlarm with Antivirus fits their needs.
