    Hello everyone,

    My subscription to Zone Alarm Pro is about to expire, I'm unsure as to whether to renew it for anohter year. Would you recommend this or is there a better firewall out there, either free or subscription?

    Thanks,

    Martin

    Hi Martin,

    Only Jetico scored higher than ZA Pro in the March 2006 test results from:
    http://www.firewallleaktester.com

    Click on the Tests link in the left-hand panel which takes you to an explanation of the scoreboard details, and at the bottom click on the View Results button to go to the scoreboard comparison of the different firewalls.

    Jetico, by and large, is an advanced firewall with a steep learning curve. There is a solid group of users and some threads on Jetico at the Wilders Security Forums, in particular, the Other Firewalls subforum at: http://www.wilderssecurity.com
    Jetico's new firewall, I believe it is version 2.0 is no longer free. You can get Jetico at: http://www.jetico.com

    If you are not willing to learn, my advice would be to stay with ZA Pro.
