Protecting your PC and network against viruses
Perhaps the most common of all Internet security problems that the average PC user will experience are viruses spread through emails and other malicious files found online. However, unfortunately this is not a firewall Internet security problem, i.e. a firewall wont protect you from these security threats. In this scenario we strongly recommend all users take advantage of specialized, comprehensive antivirus andantispyware softwareÂ that will provide protection against everything your firewall will not. It’s necessary to ensure antivirus software is installed on every machine you have currently connected to the Internet or your home network.
Protecting your PC and network against worms
When it comes to common computer worms that are transmitted through your outgoing and incoming Internet traffic, your firewall will be your first line of defense. Unlike viruses spread through fraudulent emails and malicious files, your firewall software will be able to protect your system and network from all potential worms as well as preventing worms from spreading throughout your network. It’s important to make sure your firewall is installed and turned on every computer connected to your network.
Preventing unauthorized network access
Some PC users are under the impression that their firewall software will protect their wireless network. However, the truth of the matter is your firewall only secures your PC and cannot prevent unauthorized access to your home or business network. In order to prevent access to your network, we recommend taking advantage of either Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) or wired equivalent privacy (WEP) protocols in order to secure the network.
