  • Features of high-end, business-class firewall appliances include:
    • VPN monitoring and control
    • Centralized management of multiple firewall devices
    • Reporting and alerting functions
    • Distributed security policies
    • Load balancing, fail-over, and other high-end router-related functions
    • Web caching, spam filtering, URL screening, and anti-virus features
  • An Application Firewall monitors any desktop application that attempts to access the Internet, and requests authorization for each application. This feature prevents spying software such as Trojans and backdoors from accessing the Internet from your PC. This makes these Trojans useless to hackers.
