ZoneAlarm Extreme Security 2013 Review

When it comes to Internet security, one thing is certain – it pays to protect yourself. Don’t let malware lurking online freeze your computer and your life.

Last years ZoneAlarm Extreme Security 2012 made radical upgrades from the 2-year old edition it replaced, and the 2013 release continues down that path of improvement. I recently picked used a ZoneAlarm Extreme Security coupon to check out the latest edition. Here's a quick look at what to expect from the 2013 edition of this premier antivirus software. 

Antivirus Protection

Oddly enough, ZoneAlarm does not develop its own antivirus detection technology. This software utilizes Kasperksy’s award-winning cloud-based detection platform to power Extreme Security. For this reason, you won’t see ZoneAlarm in many of the independent test results, but if you examine Kaspersky’s rankings you’ll find that it has one of the best engines available.

ZoneAlarm Extreme Security 2013 delivers Kernel-Level virus prevention to keep your operating system safe. Even the latest threats get picked up due to ZoneAlarm’s regular automated virus Signature List updates keeping protection up-to-date.


ZoneAlarm has made a reputation for itself with incredible firewall protection, and Extreme Security keeps it up with an advanced two-way firewall. You can also enter Full Stealth mode and become invisible to hackers and use Kill Controls to stop dangerous programs before they run amuck. Extreme Security 2013 implements proprietary OSFirewall Monitors to spot suspicious behavior and stop advanced attacks that other antivirus programs don’t detect like timing, raw data access, and SCM and COM attacks. All this makes ZoneAlarm’s firewall technology one of the best available today.

Additional Threat Prevention and Privacy

To keep you from putting your computer at risk, ZoneAlarm examines your downloads before they make it to your computer to make sure malicious files don’t have a chance to infect your system. It even stops drive-by-downloads from sneaking onto your drive. Additionally, you can set antispam filters to monitor your email and keep your inbox problem free. PCMag has praised it for catching upwards of 97% of all spam!

ZoneAlarm really has the users privacy and safety in mind. With a few clicks you can turn on keylogger, stop websites from collecting personal information about you with all new Do Not Track technology, clear your history, and wipe out your recent cache files.

New Facebook Protection

ZoneAlarm has long delivered some of the best parental controls available, and Extreme Security 2013 improves upon that already terrific reputation. To keep families safe, ZoneAlarm has released the all-new Facebook Privacy Scan that keeps you from sharing sensitive information with the wrong people. This advanced feature alerts you to posts that expose yourself to strangers and scans for updates and posts that can cause you harm. It will even walk you through the steps necessary to tighten up those every-changing Facebook settings for increased privacy.

When it comes to Internet security – ZoneAlarm Extreme Security 2013 stands up to the competition. It’s easy-to-use interface and advanced parental controls make it the perfect antivirus choice for families.
