ZoneAlarm Internet Security is developed by Zonelabs, and has a long history with firewalls, since ZoneAlarm was initially only a simple firewall. However, they’ve released other security products too, and ZoneAlarm Internet Security combines now a firewall, antispyware, antispam, antivirus and parental control software.
ZoneAlarm Internet Security 8 normally costs around $50 per year for one pc (yes, it’s an yearly subscription), but since it’s offered via TrialPay you can get it for free when you complete one of the offers from the listed advertisers. You can get it here: ZoneAlarm Internet Security 8 (free via Trialpay).
The "complete an offer" first sounds a bit tricky, but trust me that if you used Trialpay before there's always a chance you'd complete an offer that costs you way less then the full price of ZoneAlarm Internet Security or even find an offer that requires no money from you, just to sign-up. For instance if you need to buy flowers, stamps or anything else that crosses your mind, you can do that via Trialpay and still get ZoneAlarm Internet Security 8 free as a bonus when you complete that offer (Bestbuy, stamps.com, Sony, apple, and many others are available as advertisers you can complete an offer with).

My review of ZoneAlarm Internet Security: I’ll start with what I don’t like, I don’t like the fact that you pay yearly a subscription fee instead of paying a one-time fee and benefit from free upgrades. But then again, this happens with most security programs nowadays, and most likely will be expanded to other categories. ZoneAlarm was my first used firewall, and I’ve used it for a long time, not because I was afraid that some hacker might connect and control my computer, but because I could control all the outgoing traffic and allow/deny traffic requests on a per-case basis. Since I now use a router with its own firewall, I stopped using ZoneAlarm. However, if you want to use an all-in-one security suite, ZoneAlarm Internet Security is a very good choice for its price, considering that it has a firewall, antivirus, antispyware, antispam and parental control software.
ZoneAlarm Internet Security is only one of many other offers that Trialpay has, you can see a full list in one of my older (but updated) posts – “Free with Trialpay” list of offers.
Other ways to get ZoneAlarm Internet Security for free: The only solution I’m aware of for now is TrialPay. If you know any others, please share.
