  • An optional "silent start" mode called auto-learn has been added that detunes the OSFirewall and parts of the network firewall for the first n days (n is variable, default 7) while ZoneAlarm learns the user's unique PC environment. After n days, security reverts to maximum. This dramatically quiets the user experience, while maintaining high security including full stealth mode, Trojan protection, and all signature protection layers.
  • Product set-up process has been redesigned and shortened.
  • A pre-scan has been added to the start wizard that scans the user's PC for program files, compares programs with ZoneAlarm's SmartDefense Advisor database, and applies policy to said programs, both legitimate and malicious.
  • Settings in the Program control panel, Programs tab (Maximum, Auto-learn, Low, Off) have been revamped.
  • The UI has been refreshed, with new ZoneAlarm/Check Point branding.
