SAN CARLOS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 -- Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today introduced its new ZoneAlarm 2013 security product line, which is Windows 8 compatible and first to integrate a new Facebook Privacy Scan and Do Not Track. The new 2013 products also offer improved performance and security through advanced antivirus and firewall capabilities. In addition, features like identity protection and parental controls protect consumers and their families across multiple layers, making ZoneAlarm the most comprehensive security solution available.
ZoneAlarm's Facebook Privacy Scan flags privacy concerns in timeline posts and gives users tips and instructions for improving their privacy. This includes exposing Likes and comments that may reveal private and sensitive information about the user. Along with the Facebook privacy enhancement comes the new ZoneAlarm Do Not Track feature that blocks users' information from being tracked, offering added privacy protection that is stronger than what is available from web browsers.
"Companies are paying big money to collect consumer information, from what we share via social media to our search terms, and they can even see what we read, buy and send through our email accounts," said Bari Abdul, Head of Consumer Business at Check Point Software Technologies. "This environment makes us even more susceptible to online attacks -- not to mention spam and data overload. With ZoneAlarm 2013 products, you get maximum protection from the latest online threats while managing information that is shared with others -- this gives control back to the consumer."
ZoneAlarm's Facebook privacy scan evaluates users' posts, identifying and protecting content that could compromise a person's privacy. While they are on Facebook, users can easily launch the privacy scan from the ZoneAlarm toolbar. The privacy scan then reviews recent timeline posts and gives users control of what others see by:
ZoneAlarm's Do Not Track feature, powered by privacy expert, Abine, allows people to turn-off aggressive tracking, letting them decide if their information is shared with advertisers and, ultimately, whether or not they receive unsolicited advertising -- online or offline. Do Not Track Feature:
"It's always a good idea to exercise cautious Facebook and Internet security habits -- at ZoneAlarm, we're taking it a step further by providing solutions that protect your PC and the privacy of information that could put your safety, identity and financial well-being at risk," concluded Abdul.
ZoneAlarm offers complete security that combines multiple layers of defense for unbeatable protection. The 2013 security products feature advanced antivirus capabilities that utilize ZoneAlarm DefenseNet, a cloud-based service that detects over 50,000 new applications and threats daily, to silently stop existing and emerging attacks.
