             Editor's Review

Nowadays, using computer security software has become compulsory for every user, whether he manages a network or uses a single desktop at home. With time, malware and hackers have become much more advanced than what they used to be a few years back. They have devised newer ways to sneak past the security barrier of computer networks and single users also face the same risk. The fact, computer security solutions have also multiplied in numbers does not make things easier for the average user! Nowadays, you get a plethora of options when it comes to selecting PC security software. The various famous and newer vendors are there and you get three types of apps- standalone antivirus, Internet security suite and mega security suites that extend beyond malware protection. ZoneAlarm Extreme Security belongs to the last category.

As it is, ZoneAlarm became famous for its feature rich and effective firewalls and now the company has joined the fully fledged PC security bandwagon. The app offers comprehensive security from various offline and online threats and bundles in other features for 3 computers. The additional features include PC tune-up, data back-up, parental controls, encryption etc. You can pick from one and 2 year subscriptions. ZoneAlarm Extreme Security will disappoint users with relatively older PCs. It requires PCs with 2 GB RAM, irrespective of the OS. It supports Windows XP with SP2 and later versions. Its install-time scanner is adequate to fix issues in malware affected systems during installation. However, in some such infected systems completing the installation can be tedious.

This version of ZoneAlarm Extreme Security is quite different from the predecessor as far as interface design is concerned. The interface is segregated in 3 sections- Identity & Data, Internet and Computer. There are graphical switches and sliders for changing protection levels and settings. The app comes with many additional features which will appear promising to users but when you dig the surface, there are some hiccups. For instance, it has a Tune-Up feature, thus eliminating the need to buy a third party PC tweaking tool. However, it is annoying that you are required to download it separately. It would have been better had the company included it in main installation. It actually comes at an additional price, which can irk some users. Besides, ZoneAlarm's PC Tune-Up focuses mainly on Windows registry and lags behind dedicated PC tune up apps.

ZoneAlarm Extreme Security’s earlier version received applauds for its excellent keyloggers protection. It is a pity that this version performs worse in this department. ZoneAlarm toolbar has compatibility with some versions of Firefox which can compromise your online transactions as well.

ZoneAlarm's spam filter uses SonicWall technology and hence is more powerful than spam protection offered by rival suites. You can use it with supported email clients like Windows Mail or Microsoft Outlook. It fares nicely in spam filtering and very few spam email can make it to your inbox when you use this suite. While it’s anti spam performance is impressive a few contenders like Norton 360 and Bitdefender Total Security 2013 perform slightly better in false positives.

Nowadays, nearly all PC security apps bundle one parental control section and ZoneAlarm Extreme Security has one too. It actually has a Net Nanny 6.5 licensed edition, very effective parental control software. It has all parental control features one needs barring remote management. This suite is quite extensive and customizable. Its activities are not limited to filtering out unsuitable websites and restricting the time kids can stay online. The app also looks for crude content in instant messaging apps.

There is no denying the core strength of any PC security suite lies in its malware detection and removal performance. This app uses antivirus technology originally deployed by Kaspersky Labs. However, the suits malware removal performance is a notch below what you get from most contenders.

ZoneAlarm was among the frontrunners in PC firewall technology and you can still rely on the company for robust firewall protection at software level. It can thwart all forms of direct and stealth attacks on a PC it is installed in. It fares exceptionally well in tracing rogue programs that try to sneak in your system under guise of legitimate apps. However, the app sores just average in phishing protection. Internet Explorer’s much touted SmartScreen Filter beats it hands down in this segment.

While ZoneAlarm Extreme Security tries to bundle in all features in one suite, there is a price that users have to pay for inclusion of so many technology and provisions. Using components by various vendors take a hit on system performance eventually. If you enable all components of the app, boot time is likely to be perceptibly longer. It may slow down PC boot time by 40 percent or more which is not acceptable for a majority of users. Rivals like Kaspersky and Norton fare much better in this aspect. Even web browsing speed gets affected with Parental control activated. Performance slowdown is also evident in copying large amounts of data and multitasking.

Positive Points:
-Plenty of features, ease of use.
-Robust Firewall protection.
-Very good anti -spam performance.
-Third party tools for Parental Control, backup etc.
 
Negative Points:
-Average performance in malware detection and removal.
-Dismal Anti phishing performance.
-Slows down system speed, lengthens boot timing.
-PC tune up tool costs extra, performs average.

Conclusion:
The saying- ‘All that glitters is not gold’ is quite applicable for ZoneAlarm Extreme Security. The security software, coming from a reputed vendor in PC firewall protection offers average overall performance and performs miserably on some grounds. The intuitive and visually appealing interface is a welcome change but the fact it performs worse than earlier version on some grounds cannot be accepted. Excess payment for PC Tune up tool is another irksome aspect. The only redeeming aspect of the suite is its strong anti spam and firewall performance. Overall, it remains a difficult option to be recommended, with many other competing suites offering better performance at similar and lower price. Rating: 3/5
