Has a good pedigree, but I've found the latest builds to be a little heavy on the system resources (I was running it on older workstations), and opted for either the OS default firewall or a lighter product.

Previous versions were good, these days ZoneAlarm seems way too bloated... I'd pass.

I still use this, gets the job done, but I've yet to find a better alternative. The site shows a few but not many likes on them or enough info for me to switch yet.

Just a note: Antiviruses, like AVG are not alternatives to firewalls like Zone Alarm. They're two different things. However, it doesn't seem to be any way to remove AVG from Zone Alarm's alternatives-list...?
