Little Snitch sits atop the built in firewalls, and programs the firewalls per your settings. It uses the firewall triggers to produce its reports.
That is a pretty sophisticated setup. Does Zone Alarm do that nowadays or does it just close off outbound ports you select? It would seem that a defense that verifies apps would be a pretty good defense against keyloggers.
