    It is both. It is not a matter of double protection, but more of how much it can be configured. Rule based firewalls is packet filtering that allows users more defined control over what will be permitted and denied.

    example:

    ZA Free:
    When you permit your browser outbound access it is to any remote port.

    ZA Pro or rule based firewall:
    When you permit your browser outbound access you can define remote port 80(HTTP), 443(HTTPS)

    Both are packet filtering, just not to the same degree.
