A personal firewall plays a very important role in securing Windows 7 computers when they connect to the Internet. Windows 7
is a popular operating system, which is still being used despite Microsoft stopping support for the OS.
The Need for a Personal Firewall
- Windows 7 computers connect through cable modems or DSL to the Internet. These computers may have static IP address or a single stable IP address which increases risk.
- Many users use an 'always on' broadband connection internet at home, which also increases risk.
- Users may run a home network which has to be kept isolated from the internet.
- The computer/device is used to connect to the internet via public WiFi.
- Hackers try to stealthily enter the device through the computer/device ports.
Functions of a Personal Firewall
- Monitors and blocks unauthorized inbound or outbound connection attempts
- Allows specification of rules for allowing specific programs selective access the internet
- Stealths ports on computer/device to prevent hackers from locating and attacking the device
