Twice in the last year, Check Point Software, the developers of the popular ZoneAlarm Firewall has had free specials on offer.
ForceField and ZoneAlarm Pro, both of which are highly rated flagship products could be had on a free, one day only, download.
Now comes news that on April 14, 2009, Check Point will offer their highly regarded ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite for $9.95. This offer will only be available beginning at 6:00am PDT on April 14, and will run for 24 hours only.
In keeping with its “good corporate citizen image”, Check Point will donate half of the proceeds to TechSoup Global, “a nonprofit organization devoted to making technology and technology education available and affordable to other nonprofits and libraries all over the world.”
I recall the last free or reduced price offer from Check Point was extremely popular, so get there early and avoid getting caught in server overload.
