    Hello,

    I am currently using Comodo along with A2 Squared (paid version of A2).

    I am looking to perhaps move up into a complete suite of components. My two choices, at least so far, are:

    NIS 2009 or Zone Alarm Security Suite.

    Both run between $29 and $49 and both will cover up to 3 computers.

    Will either of these be considerably better than the Comodo/A2 combo? Or should I stay with what I have?

    Thanks

    Both would be better than what you are currently using. If I had to make a choice I'd go with NIS 2009.

    tbh, Comodo with D+ and A2 runnign real-time. no neither of those suites can compete with that, first of all because neither of those suites have a HIPS or at least one as good as comodo's and A2 does have FP's but it is very good at prevention. i would not get rid of those 2 apps for either of the suites mentioned.

    Also Avira could be a very good solution, but the Suite costs 39€, that means 56$..

    The AV of Comodo isn't good, so I suggest you to change at least the AV, with KAV/NAV/Avira or another one. If you want a free AV, the best one imho is Avira ;)

    Avira suite is good, as long as you dont mind having a firewall that isnt the best, but good enough, basically if you want a firewall that can do its job good enough without annoying you and slowing you down.

    I edited the post ;)

    Imho the best thing'd probably be to leave Comodo on the PC, and change only the AV.

    Suites have usually a good AV, but a bad firewall and no HIPS

    Hi;

    I have paid subscriptions to both and prefer NIS 2009.
    It's my opinion that as of now, NIS 2009 offers better overall protection and uses less system resources although I find negligible slow down with either.

    My first choice of any security suite that I have actually used would be Avira's which for about $58.00 offers a year of protection for three computers.
    While this is more than your stated maximum, I believe it might be worth considering.

    My second choice; NIS 2009.

    Third; Kaspersky.

    -Just a thought;
    Why not consider NAV or Avira Premium AV with the free Comodo FW ?

    IMO I would not giveup comodo w D+ for NIS or ZA but perhaps add Norton antivirus.No comments on A2 have No experience with it.

    Norton has friendly firewall.In fact i'll go beyond and say i consider it a tech masterpiece.At least when i tried the suite 1 month ago i could play games ,use strong dc ,utorrent ,share printers all on auto mode without a single pop-up.Other vendors will learn from this i hope.
    If u want to harden the rules you can configure them manually,or enable advanced program control or something like that :) ,kind of a limited HIPS.
