    Hi list,

    I just wanted to share a few observations about eTrust
    personal
    security package:

    Computer Associates (CA) recently released a bundle of

    personal firewall and antivirus software. The bundle
    is called
    eTrust EZ Armor and contains eTrust EZ Personal
    Firewall
    and eTrust EZ Antivirus.

    The bundle is free for one year, including AV and FW
    updates.
    Also, Microsoft has added the product to the list of
    personal
    firewalls on their security web page (with a free 12
    months remark)
    http://www.microsoft.com/security/protect/windows2000/firewall.asp

    More on that you can find here
    http://www.nwfusion.com/news/2003/1120comdeca.html?nl
    including a little bit nervous comment from Symantec's
    CEO
    John Thompson.

    What is the most interesting though, is that eTrust EZ
    Personal Firewall
    is rebranded ZoneLab's Zone Alarm Pro. They did not
    try to camouflage
    it much so the GUI is almost the same, they just
    replaced brand references.
    Still, some references to ZoneLabs can be found in log
    files, etc.

    Users who get eTrust EZ Armor will get the same
    personal
    firewall that it would otherwise cost them $39.95 if
    they bought
    it from Zone's web site.

    -Rob.
