ZoneAlarm Pro 24-Hour Giveaway

Check Point Software Technologies is celebrating its 15th anniversary tomorrow by giving away free copies of its vaunted firewall software ZoneAlarm Pro 2009. The promotion runs for 24 hours, from 6 a.m. PST Tuesday, November 18 to 6 a.m. Wednesday, November 19.

The ZoneAlarm Pro package features a firewall, anti-spyware, and identity-theft protection that includes daily monitoring of your credit history. The program normally costs $39.95 for a one-year subscription. The offer, limited to one download per customer, is available here.

“By offering Check Point ZoneAlarm Pro free for 24 hours,” said Laura Yecies, vice president and general manager for Check Point’s ZoneAlarm consumer division, “we are allowing consumers to witness first hand the value and improved protection that comes from our powerful yet easy-to-use firewall.”

This isn’t the first time that Check Point has given away free copies of Zone Alarm Pro. The company made a similar offer last August 12, in observance of one of Microsoft’s “Patch Tuesdays.”

Check Point’s motivations aren’t entirely altruistic, of course; the product the company is giving away operates on a subscription basis and will need to be renewed in one year if it’s to continue delivering value. Assuming this is a subscription program you’re interesting in purchasing, however, that’s at least one year you won’t have to pay for.

    crosshares, while I will agree with you with your comment about ZA, I dont agree with you in terms of this article as I feel ZA Pro is better especially for FREE.

    Thanks Check Point, first time I will be using ZA Pro since you guys took over, especially since my Kaspersky Internet Security 2008 subscription just expired, thanks for saving me some cash, especially thankful in these dollar strapped times,

    sidenote, its been a good day free ZA Pro and gas is $2.05 out here in IL, finally I can afford to drive my 12.6 (avg) Truck again >:)

    Went to the link and it's NOT FREE. At least there's no indication that they are giving ZA Pro sh*t free. Only trials so SLAP>ZAP in da face! Everybody know's Avast or AVG kicks everybody's butt! I had Commodo for a long time but it only caught a few viruses. I mess around alot on the net and I'm constantly getting into sites that will infect you not to mention what I download. AVG or AVAST guys, it's the best I've seen so far with very low resource footprint.

    You're an idiot. Did you even read about exactly what times it would be available? I just received my download link for the free year of ZA pro. Think before you post, jackass.

    This is an example of when an offer is not an offer because it is a stripped down version of Zone Alarm Pro which means you have to pay anyway if you need what it offers because you aren't getting everything.

    Putting in a "/sarcasm" might help people know that you aren't serious.
