    Hi, all:

    Currently using it, after having some surfing slowdown (IE7) with Sandboxie/ DefenseWall.

    I found ZAFF did not slowdown surfing speed, and apparently is an app of "
    more than a sandbox " .

    ZAFF may not have a lot of functionalities, but it just requires a little, or virtually none users interactions. Therefore, it is very quite and resource-light. And working harmony with GeSWall 2.38.

    So far so good.

    I am surprised. It was a memory sucking nightmare for me, which kept crashing IE. I sent them dump 4 times even with video. No solution yet.

    Very much improved from initial release and relatively light...
    Latest version added detection of forged SSL certificate.

    No crashes here on IE7 or FF... may be some conflicts with installed add-on.

    Perman,

    Why add ZAFF when using GeSWall?

    Hi, Kees:

    Good question indeed.
    Be honest with you, I do not know why. I guess it is the the same reason when I added Sandboxie to DefenseWall.--my own discretion.

    You are the Expert in this field, perhaps you can help us to solve this question.

    One thing for sure is that after these two put together, the whole system performs (Win XP sp3, Intel dual core processor) much more smoothly, I do not have to use Shadow Defender any more, and feel safe.

    I last provided feedback to Checkpoint for ZAFF 1.2.131 beta. They acknowledged a memory leak and I haven't got a response on the ticket/bug report status yet.
    So no idea, as to whats the situation on that front.

    Re: A Quite and Light ZA ForceField

    No. As I said, I expected some feedback from Checkpoint stating that my bug report/ ticket has been solved before trying. But after the initial fury of requests for logs and videos. They have been quiet for a long time.

    Anyways, in the meantime I got myself a DW license. At I haven't looked back at ZAFF. Sorry !!

    ZAFF is sort of hybrid thing. Good thing is it is a black list. Nice for ordinary user. Not sure if it has a white list as well.

    They don't usually come back, or at least they never in my case.

    No need to be sorry... I don't sell FF :)

    Nope, internally developed scanner (spyware oriented).
    In fact, it is recommended to run it with your current security tools.
