Practice safe browsing with ZoneAlarm ForceField, and get it free (today only)
Normally $29.95, ForceField is being offered free of charge--but only for today. It promises safe Web access by creating a virtual browser.
ZoneAlarm ForceField is a new security utility that promises bulletproof protection against browser-related threats. It normally sells for $29.95, but Check Point Software is offering it absolutely free, today only, as part of a Patch Tuesday promotion.
The software relies on a technique called "virtual browsing" to protect your PC against unauthorized downloads, malware installations, phishers, keyloggers, and the like. It also promises total privacy by erasing the (virtual) browser's cache, cookies, history, and passwords. According to Check Point, the program won't interfere with any existing security software you might already have.
I haven't tried ForceField yet, and I tend to think my browser (Firefox 3) already provides pretty solid protection from Web threats. But, hey, it's a one-day-only freebie, and you know me: I'm all about the freebies.
Note: The above promo video is fairly amusing, but it has segments that are NSFW.
