Which Firewall has the best antispyware? Outpost PRO 3 or ZoneAlarm PRO 6?
Anyone? Please, I need some advices, I need a Firewall with good antispyware...
Between those two I'd pick Outpost any day but I'm sure
you'll get others saying ZoneAlarm is better
Check the Outpost forum for the anti-spyware comparison
thread. Seems there was a review of anti-spyware on
PCPro but you need to register there to view it
p80 of the Nov issue
the results were
In this, Outpost 3.0 achieved a detection rate of 81 percent, removal of 72
percent and blocking of 53 percent. In comparison, PC Tools Spware Doctor -
the winner - surprise surprise - achieved 94/88/66
detection/removal/blocking), Sunbelt CounterSpy 88/84/54, WebRoot
SpySweeper 82/80/48, Microsoft AntiSpyware 61/72/41, Lavasoft AdAware
48/62/24 and Spybot Search and Destroy 56/52/36. Outpost would have
gained 4th position in this test (3 other products were also tested).
But they didn´t test Zonealarm Anti-spyware
Choose the firewall you like best, treat the AS pugin as something extra.
OP does seem to add quite a bit of signatures, in the three weeks i've use 3.0 they have added 5000 new signatures.
ZA`s anti spyware hasn`t updated since to 20th of this month...that`s why I don`t use it.
