Having used Zonealarm on XP (old version with lock engage), is it worth using this (Checkpoint version) in conjunction with / as an alternative to Windows 10's firewall?


It's good to have the lock and know what programs (such as installed anti-virus etc) are trying to perform updates / call home.


What are people's thoughts?

I have been using ZA on W7 Ultimate for a year now and I like it. I also especially like that ease with which I can block outgoing sends from programs. It's always nice to know which programs are calling home when there is no need for it. Especially after I have blocked auto-updates in the program itself!
