Firewalls - do I need one with XP SP2?



ZoneAlarm is the only firewall product that I recommend. I is one of the fastest I have seen aswell as offering several features generally restricted to more expensive hardware firewalls. The following is information from ZoneAlarm regarding Windows XP Service Pack 2.

ZoneAlarm products have more robust and comprehensive security features than the Windows Firewall, including monitoring and controlling inbound and outbound Internet activity. Windows Firewall can only monitor and control inbound network traffic.

ZoneAlarm products also provide hijacking protection, expert controls, safe-sharing, spoofing protection, and program control features. Additionally, ZoneAlarm Pro and ZoneAlarm Security Suite offer extensive privacy features for added protection.
