Software is a basic requirement for anyone using broadband to
prevent hacking, virus, and other security risks. Firewall
software is software designed to prevent unauthorized access to
a computer or network that is connected to the Internet.
Firewall software comes in a variety of forms, offering a wide
variety of features, protection capabilities, scalability and
cost. From personal firewall software that can be purchased for
$50, to corporate firewall software costing thousands, firewall
software is a necessary component of having any type of
broadband connection. Typically, firewall software works by
hiding your computer (via the ports that connect it to the
Internet) from unknown users. Firewall software basically 'stealths'
your computer of network, hiding it from hackers who scour the
Internet looking for vulnerable computers that they can gain
access to. When looking for firewall software, make sure to
research a variety of products to make sure you find the
software package that best fits your needs.
