Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall ver. 4.3 Build 246 | 5 Mb
The Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall helps you control how your computer exchanges data with other computers on the Internet or local network. Even if you have a router that has a built-in firewall, you will still benefit from using Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall on your PC(s). It's the principle of "belt-and-suspenders" (being double-safe) which is a strongly recommended strategy to deal with these 'Internet Bad Guys'. The Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall also protects your PC from attacks initiated by other PC's on your network that might have been compromised.
Kerio Personal Firewall is a necessity for all desktop computers connected to broadband Internet, using DSL, cable, ISDN, WiFi or satellite modems. Within an organization, Kerio Personal Firewall prevents a single computer from attacks initiated by internal users. Remote workstations and laptops running KPF are protected from Internet born attacks. And if you have a notebook PC, you definitely should use the Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall on that notebook as well. Notebooks are especially easy to compromise because of built-in wireless access.
*** F E A T U R E S of "Kerio Personal Firewall":
- Network security
Residing on each desktop computer, Kerio Personal Firewall allows advanced users or network administrators to create packet filter rules that block or limit traffic for specific ports, protocols, or IP addresses, adding a level of control and security found in sophisticated network firewalls. Rules are based on the needs of individual users and the overall security requirements of the organization.
- Privacy protection
Scanning for sensitive information, blocking pop-up windows, filtering out on-line banner ads, and restricting cookies and spyware programs that track browsing habits are functions of KPF that reduce the risk of identity theft and help make surfing the Internet much more pleasant.
- Intrusion detection
Potential intruders use various techniques to find out whether a targeted computer is vulnerable to attack. These techniques vary from simple port scanning to more elaborate exploits. Kerio Personal Firewall has a built-in intrusion detection system that identifies and blocks most known attacks.
- Application integrity
Besides upgrades or updates, there is usually no need to modify an application. Some modifications can make your programs report usage information. Kerio Personal Firewall can keep applications from launching independently, being modified for malicious purposes, or starting other applications.
Potential intruders use various techniques to find out if your PC is vulnerable to attacks.
