    ZoneAlarm does not make a firewall for the MAC.

    DoorStop X lets you restrict internet access for services but not applications.

    Theres also Norton Personal Firewall for Mac, but again it only controls services.

    There's a built in firewall in the Mac. It's under the blue Apple Icon (top, left- hand corner)>System Preferences>Sharing. For outbound control, you could try Little Snitch.

    Oh, BTW, the firewall in Mac is not enabled by default; you have to turn it on yourself.
