Firewall security features
Firewall is a network system which blocks out unknown Internet processes and programs from entering into your computer system. As it aims at preventing any unknown program or user from reaching to your system, it is different from a simple antivirus software program. While an antivirus program identifies and removes any program that is infecting the computer, the Firewall security program blocks these programs from even accessing your system. This article will show what kind of security the Firewall program provides.
- Protection against viruses and other malicious programs
- Protection against hackers
- Protection to your computer data
- Protection against Trojan horses
- A complete security protection program
Protection against viruses and other malicious programs
Firewall defends your computer against not only viruses, but also adware, spyware, malware, ransomware and other malicious programs. In this way, your computer’s performance stays at its best even after several years of usage.
Protection against hackers
Because most of the malware programs aim at peeping into your computer system, you also get protection against hackers who are out there to steal your personal information, financial details, passwords and codes. Firewall security program works to filter out information which is entering into your network and allows only the known programs and users to pass through it.
Protection to your computer data
Latest Firewall security programs not only block unknown programs and users from your computer but also protect your computer data from being stolen by the hackers. If the hackers do manage to get through the Firewall, it will prevent him from accessing information stored on your computer or your network.
Protection against Trojan horses
Trojan horses are viruses that reach your screen in disguised form. These are executable files that need to be downloaded by you manually. That is why they are presented in attractive forms so that you feel convinced to click on them and unknowingly download them on your PC. By the time you know that you have downloaded a Trojan horse on your computer system, a large part of your PC gets damaged due to its effect. A Firewall program is able to detect these Trojan horses and warn you before and after you click on them.

This means that an advanced version of Firewall program is a complete PC security protection program for your computer.
