Protoport Personal Firewall
Personal firewall ia a technology that helps prevent intruders from accessing data on your PC via
the Internet or another network, by keeping unauthorized data from entering or exiting your system.
Luckly, you can protect your data. Protoport Personal Firewall can block malicious attacks and
protect your PC from outside threats.
When you're connected to the Internet, you're sending and receiving information in small units
called packets. A packet contains the addresses of the sender and the recipient along with a piece
of data, a request, a command, or almost anything having to do with your connection to the Internet.
But just as with postal mail, not every package that arrives at your computer is one you want to open.
Protoport Personal Firewall examines each data packet sent to or from your computer to see if it meets
a set of criteria. The firewall then selectively passes or blocks the packet.
