Software Firewall


As the name suggests, a software firewall is a software-based solution installed as a virtual appliance or on individual computers on your network to safeguard them against vulnerabilities. It can control the behavior associated with certain applications.

For instance, you can use it to block certain websites or printers installed within your network.

What do they do?

Software firewalls act as a 2nd line of defense from online attacks. In a scenario when a malicious program tries to access your network, a software firewall can assess its legitimacy by consulting an updated database.

Using this information, the firewall allows or blocks the program. They are great at mitigating risks coming from a blacklisted address, suspicious applications, unknown malware, and more. These firewalls provide extended flexibility while assigning workstations and users with different permission levels.
