Check Point updates ZoneAlarm for Vista

New security suite to take advantage of built-in security of Vista.

Check Point has launched an updated version of its ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite for Windows Vista.

The company also announced availability of its ZoneAlarm Antivirus and the free ZoneAlarm firewall for the latest Microsoft OS.

According to the company, the release marked the first time that ZoneAlarm's exclusive Operating System Firewall protection has been made available for Microsoft Vista. It claimed that it was the first major security vendor to use the next generation Windows Filtering Platform application programming interface (API) for Microsoft Vista.

"By using Vista's new API and providing a deeper OS-layer firewall, ZoneAlarm can provide consumers with greater protection and stability on the Vista operating system," said Charles Kolodgy, research director at IDC. "As hackers innovate, security vendors can not rely purely on old methods and old technologies."
