This article provides information on an integrated security solution from Zone Labs. The system integrates the Zone Labs firewall technology with antivirus technology from Computer Associates. The antivirus technology of Computer Associates has received the VB100 award for the past four consecutive years from Virus Bulletin, one of the foremost antivirus testing authorities worldwide. It protects at the earliest possible opportunity, providing no window of opportunity for malicious programs to communicate. The Message Encryption protects IM from eavesdropping while other IM security features defend personal computer against IM Spam, risks posed by IM vulnerabilities including common attacks like buffer overflows, invalid messages, unsafe scripts, and executable URL. One can also add a personal stealth mode firewall to shield the PC from unauthorized entry, program control to prevent Trojan horses and spyware from stealing users' information via unauthorized communications with the Internet, as well as simple set-up for networks, including wireless networks.
