Firewall is a software program or hardware that protects your computer from hackers, viruses, and worms.
If any of these bugs get into your computer, they will compromise your system.
A firewall is protection, designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network.
On your computer, all messages and actions entering or leaving the
intranet pass through the firewall. The messages are checked and if it
doesn’t meet the specified security criteria, it is blocked.
The firewall barrier keeps destructive forces away from your
property. Firewalls allow remote access to a private network through
secure authentication certificated and logins.
The infographic below gives detail on how a firewall will help protect your system.
