Not really.
Thanks @Trident
I asked you this question because I decided to try ZAESNG and I got 3 weird detectionso_O
Few minutes after its installation ZAESNG automatically quarantined HitmanPro application which I have been using for many years.o_O
Then during the complete analysis of my system, ZAESNG detected as malware an older HitmanPro installer as well as an anydesk installer.o_O
I'm wondering if it is possible to report false positives to ZoneAlarm support?:unsure:

My thought?? some security apps see a compatibility issue with other security apps, and either ask you to remove them or delete them. Could be a false+ or not if ZA considers it incompatible. (I now run Checkpoint Harmony instead of ZA). @Trident knows better than I do about this...

I will report it to Check Point and get their comment.
Thanks @Trident for your help(y)

But Checkpoint Harmony is for business users ? endpoints ?
Anydesk is not a security app.

well Harmony is not only for enterprises. The cost for Harmony is comparable to good paid home consumer AV. I thought we were talking about HitmanPro. I recently read something bad about Anydesk, but don't recall exactly what the_bad was since I don't use it. (that I know of)

Thanks @simmerskool (y)
For anydesk, it is possibly this info: AnyDesk says hackers breached its production servers, reset passwords
I'm interested about Harmony, is it a better software than ZoneAlarm ? , where can I find it ?

I have the same question can't they make this a simple buy and download???
No, as many business security vendors, Check Point is 100% channel oriented, meaning distribution, sales and management are offloaded to business partners. You can’t buy from Check Point directly.

I've no issues with the next gen. They do offer a nag to the paid version but the free AV/Firewall suite should be sufficient for home users.
