Firewall Software



How secure is your computer from hackers and data thieves?

Any computer connected to the Internet is a potential target. Hackers are constantly probing the Internet to find unprotected computers. Once found, a hacker can compromise your computer with spyware or viruses. 
 
Hackers can also access your computer to retrieve your personal information. 

A firewall can help prevent spyware programs from transmitting your personal information over the Internet by blocking outgoing network traffic. 

The most effective way to prevent hackers and data thieves from accessing your computer is by using a firewall. 

What Is A Firewall?

A firewall is a piece of software or hardware that filters all network traffic between your computer and the Internet. A firewall keeps your Internet connection as secure as possible by inspecting and then approving or rejecting each connection attempt made between your computer and the Internet based on the rules you have defined.
