    The Sygate Personal Firewall and Sygate Personal Firewall Pro products will no longer be available effective November 30. The big difference is that Sygate Personal Firewall was free. Now consumers will receive special upgrade pricing when they buy a replacement product from Symantec’s Norton family of Internet security products.

    Would sygate customers have noticed? no. Sygate hasn't updated their Pro/pay firewall for over a year. :mad:

    It's still a shame. Now my hope for an update is crushed.

    Very sad, I've been using SPF many years now... And I won't spend my money to any firewall, free editions are enough for me. But now the best of them is gone... :(

    But luckily (for those who are looking for free firewall) SPF can still be found in the Internet.
