Sygate Personal Firewall Pro by Sygate Technologies, Inc. automatically protects your PC from hackers and other malicious attacks. It includes full-ICS support, protocol driver-level protection and enhanced logging. This firewall can stop intruders from hacking into your system, and that’s the point with a firewall. But Personal Firewall Pro doesn’t offer all the perks that our top ranked products do to block ads, popups and other undesirable content online. Sygate Personal Firewall is also a challenge for beginners.
Sygate Personal Firewall is more than an advanced, user-friendly personal firewall, it's a bi-directional intrusion defense system. It ensures your personal computer is completely protected from malicious hackers and other intruders while preventing unauthorized access from your computer to a network. In essence, it makes your protected machines invisible to the outside world. That makes it a must-have security measure for any PC that connects to a private network or the public Internet. Once you've been compromised, every other network you connect to is at risk; including your home, business and online bank accounts. No matter where you use your computer, whether remote or behind a corporate firewall, whether dial-up or an always-on broadband Internet connection, it gives you complete confidence that your precious business, personal, financial and other data is safe and secure.
Sygate Personal Firewall PRO covers all the bases covered by Personal Firewall, but adds new network layer protection measures, an application-based detection system (IDS), and operating system security protection. It can automatically terminate common attacks, such as known Trojans and Denial of Service Zombies. This firewall's defense mechanisms can also keep malicious code or users from disabling the firewall.
Sygate’s Personal Firewall control panel has an informative graph that details incoming and outgoing traffic as it is blocked. The program also offers an attack history graph, helpful for tracking intrusion trends. Sygate Personal Firewall Pro’s control panel allows you to view and manage running applications so you can instantly stop a data transmission if you want.
Sygate has some advanced firewall features, but these are best suited to experienced computer users since understanding them requires extra reading. For example, Sygate Personal Firewall Pro is one of the only software firewalls that will let you assign specific port rules and time restrictions, but doing so is challenging.
