Free License Giveaway for BufferZone Pro Virtualization Application

imageRegular reader John W, has once more pointed me to a free license giveaway – this time for BufferZone, a virtualization application which creates an isolated environment called the Virtual Zone, while you surf the Internet. The Virtual Zone “buffers” your PC from all forms of known or unknown attacks, that originate from the Internet and external devices.

I have not had an opportunity to test drive this application, but of the 6 or so reviews I did have a chance to read, most reported favorably on the program’s performance.

Virtualization provides a strong layer of protection against malware infection while surfing the Net, and this license giveaway will give you an opportunity to run with the Pro version of  BufferZone, and save $40.00 in the process.


From the developer’s site:

When you use the Internet, programs from the Web can enter your PC uninvited or invited (by downloading). In order to run, these programs make modifications to your hard drive and registry (operating system). Usually such modifications are harmless. However, when they’re not, infected programs or files can do serious damage to your computer.

BufferZone patented “Threat Virtualization” technology


With BufferZone, all programs or files that enter your computer through downloading, browsing or uploading with external media devices are redirected to a Virtual Zone (C:\Virtual). C:\Virtual is a special directory in your computer’s registry that keeps external programs and files in an isolated environment, separated from your trusted personal files and your PC’s operating system.

All files, personal information, drivers and system resources remain invisible to threats and therefore protected from costly or irreversible damage. Viruses, bots, worms, Trojan Horses, phishing, keyloggers, spyware and other malicious code are prevented from covertly installing on your PC.

Modifications from infected programs, files or problematic websites will run only inside C:\Virtual. Inside the Virtual Zone, infections are easily contained and changes can be reversed. The Virtual Zone keeps your computer and trusted files clean and safe.

    I currently running this co-exist with Avast on my desktop. A very strong setup. Just like you have Avast Internet Security.

    Thanks Sir Bill for the article.

    • Hey Vhick,

      Good to hear about your experience with this app. I’ve downloaded it but haven’t installed yet. Now that I have your advice, I’ll give it a try.



  2. Bill,

    I have not tried/tested this either and hoping for some additional reviews on this. I like the concept… Wonder if Wilder’s Security has forum topic on it. Will have to see…


    • Hey Rick,

      On the face of it it looks pretty good. But it will be weeks before I have a chance to test it. It would be cool if you took it for a spin and wrote it up, though. If you have the time, that is.


  3. Hey Bill,
    Is there any difference between Firewalls and browsing security apps like this and Geswall. It seems that apps like this are enough or better.

    • Hey Pochp,

      Yes indeed. GesWall is an intrusion prevention system that works by isolating selected applications. In my view, a vitualization application is slightly better.

    Good deal but can’t use it as it is not available in 64 bit
