It seems like every year I need to go through this exersize over and over again. The Firewall landscape seems to be like a formicating pool changing goalposts and lanscape as you watch.
What was good is now deprecated and vice-versa.
I used to prefer AtGuard, but then new exploits came on the scene which it did not catch (Due to some Windows low-level flaws) and the product was discontinued (and later bought by another company and defiled)
Then I swote by Tiny Personal Firewall (version 2015a), and that also went the way of the dodo.
Then it was Zone Alarm 5 (version 55940).
Then it was Kerio Personal Firewall 18.104.22.1682.
And for the past year I was using Sygate Personal Firewall (which I bought)
To my great dismay I have now discovered that Symantec has bought Sygate and basically deprecated the product, and having no great love for Norton/Symantec or MacAfee I started to look for alternative.
These are my options now. (in order of preference) Core Force ZoneAlarm 55940Sygate 5.6Tiny Personal Fi…
