    What do you mean?

    They bought Zonelabs, so technically they own Zone Alarm which is a personal firewall. But what exactly are you looking for?

    we have remote users that are using broadband and dial in to access their email so i would like to be able to install some firewall client to protect against viruses, keep anti-virus up to date etc etc

    There are plenty of personal Firewalls you can choose from, including Zone Alarm, but those are restricted to Firewall functions (not Anti Virus).

    If you're looking for something to include Antivirus as well you might want to check out Symantec's and McAfee's offerrings.

    Or get the Firewall and Antivirus seperately.

    Well Checkpoint doesn't handle Antivirus, and doesn't have a Personal Firewall (except Zone Alarm - which still isn't Anti Virus).

    Perhaps some other experts have better recommendations for products?
