Update: The promotion is over and there is currently no new promotion that is offering free access to Zonealarm products.
Remember last year? Zonealarm ran a promotion in November where users could grab a valid one year license for Zonealarm Pro Firewall.
Seems that the promotion was a success as the devs are readying their website for this year's promotion. The rules are simple.
You need to visit the Zonealarm website - to be precise the website with the promotion information - on October 13 at 6 a.m. PDT to get the free version of the commercial firewall.
A registration is required to receive the registration keys. Downloads were available for seven days the last time and servers were aching under the load. It is therefor good to be among the first or wait ten or so hours before attempting to register.
The Check Point ZoneAlarm Pro promotion represents a $40 value and includes a full year license for up to three PCs. It is limited to only one download per new customer.
Features of Zonealarm Pro Firewall 2010:
Additional information about the firewall are available at the Zonealarm website.
Update: Users need to add credit card information for "verification" purposes. Check Point is setting the subscription to automatically renew after a year which can be changed in the use profile on the website.
