ZoneAlarm ForceField provides essential browser security that protects users and their PCs from the latest browser attacks. Delivering protection not found in traditional security suites, ZoneAlarm ForceField complements whatever security you already have. It creates a shield around your browser that blocks drive by downloads, browser exploits, phishing attempts, spyware and keyloggers. User's passwords, confidential information and financial data remain protected. Now users can surf the Internet, without compromising their computer, information, or identity.
Why it matters.
Browser attacks are real. New web technologies make hacking into computers easier, and for the victim more dangerous. Hackers are using web technologies and browser vulnerabilities to bypass traditional security to infiltrate, control, and command user PCs through their browser. Just by visiting a single website, a user can fall victim to a drive-by download that silently delivers over 1000 attacks. One out of 10 websites is booby-trapped, often installing viruses and spyware that capture key financial data and passwords. Phishing attacks are growing increasingly sophisticated and trick even careful surfers into revealing confidential information. These attacks take over your PC, damage your credit rating and steal your money.
How it works.
ZoneAlarm ForceField protects users from browser-based exploits and other web threats by stopping attacks before they can reach the operating system. Each time a user surfs the web with ZoneAlarm ForceField, it automatically creates a clone of the user's browser. Every time a user hits a website or opens a new page, any malware that potentially could attack goes straight to the ZoneAlarm ForceField clone. That way if any threats do penetrate a user's defenses, they affect only the temporary clone - not you or your PC.
By creating a virtual user and providing additional defenses, ZoneAlarm ForceField secures users' real identity, protects their computer, maintains their confidential information, and lets users surf privately leaving no trace of their activity in their browser or on any computer. Continuously updated to block the latest wave of web-based attacks, ZoneAlarm ForceField works in the background to block spyware, prevent malicious downloads, and jam keyword and screengrabber attacks. It's a technique we call "Virtual Browsing." We believe it is an absolutely essential piece of Internet security software, and only ZoneAlarm has it.
