Zone Alarm Personal Firewall Software
Information Technology recommends any home user install personal firewall software to provide protection from hackers. Zone Alarm is a decent personal firewall and is free for home use (it is not free if you wish to use it on-campus). Zone Alarm allows you to control which programs on your computer may send and recieve information on the Internet. If you wish to download this software, please do so from the Zone Labs website below. Unfortunately, our support technicians are not licensed to have copies of this or any other firewall software, so we are unable to provide support for this product.
