Threats, viruses, worms and Trojans have often been spoken of everywhere, causing a real insecurity to the computers. Hackers and external sources have employed these threats for selfish means just say to steal the confidential information.
If caught in the trap, your system could result in a malfunctioning or its files may be destroyed. To play safe, we have to take the initiative of securing our devices from getting infected by the malicious codes hidden in the viruses sent. Usually, what comes to mind is protecting the system with anti-virus software. How about blocking access for these external threats? What is the best possible way to do it? Firewall solutions are the way to it.
How a firewall works?
A firewall can be either software or hardware intended to control the flow of data between the internet and the computer. As per the set of firewall rules, a firewall checks the data on the internet if it is authorized or not. By blocking the unauthorized one, it allows the authorized data forward to the computer.
Hardware and software firewalls
A software firewall is usually a program installed on the computer and is free of any hardware resources or wiring. You could just easily install your own firewall on the computer as there are many free firewall software programs available for you, but there is one danger in doing so. How do you judge if it is a trustworthy source or not? You might fall into a risk by putting faith in windows and programs that show up claiming to be legitimate sources. Rather, it is better staying safe by looking for reputable companies coming up with reliable firewall solutions.
On the other hand, among the hardware firewalls, there is the hardware with wiring or the wireless ones. The hardware with wiring is a box coming with a router, connecting a number of computers with multiple ports. The firewall can block access at the ports. The wireless router connects multiple devices and as evident needs no wiring. If you are deciding on a wireless router, it should be built with a firewall.
You cannot guarantee you are safe with a firewall alone, anti-virus and anti-spam programs are also necessary to ensure the computer is secured from spam sites and emails.
