ZoneAlarm ForceField sandboxes browser

September 24th, 2007

This sounds quite interesting:

Check Point Software Technologies has released a public beta of ZoneAlarm ForceField, a browser virtualization security tool that promises anti-phishing and spyware-blocking capabilities.

The software is available as a free download during the beta testing period. Check Point plans to slap a $29.95 price tag on the product once the final version ships in early 2008.

ZoneAlarm ForceField essentially puts the browser in a sandbox (Internet Explorer 6/7 and Firefox 2.0 are supported on Windows XP and Vista), allowing users to surf and shop online without fear of falling victim to drive-by exploits.

What surprises me is that the Firefox team haven't done this already.
