In this day and age, we have hackers roaming the internet looking for any chance they can get at attacking somebody's computer. They may want to compromise your security, to steal your financial data, or to basically wreak havoc on your computer. Your first line of defense against these hackers is, quite simply, the firewall. Nowadays, more and more people are starting to use hardware firewalls. These hardware firewalls, which are mostly routers, are extremely good at detecting incoming attacks and blocking them promptly. With a hardware firewall, the computer user should not worry about acquiring extra software firewalls to protect themselves.

But many people are directly connected to the internet, they do not use any type of Hardware firewall. These people are the most vulnerable. If they wish to remain secure on the internet, they must get a software firewall. Software firewalls are quite similar to hardware firewalls, and in some cases, offer many more options. Windows Firewall, one of the many free firewalls available on the internet, comes bundled with a purchase of Windows XP and later versions. While the default firewall has a certain degree of protection, it cannot (and does not) compare to a highly polished and multi-layered firewall.

Outpost Firewall Pro is a prime example of a great firewall. It offers a great many deal of features all bundled into a nice, polished interface. It is not complicated to install and configure, and it can be up and running in just a few minutes. At it's core, it protects against all types of intrusions, which is highly essential. But it also has quite a few extra features that make up for it's steep price.

A quick run-down of those features would highlight key features such as: protecting the data on your computer, making sure your applications are securely connected to the internet, and protects you while surfing and/or checking your email. It also protects you against spyware, and uses a form of HOSTS protection as another layer of protection.

Overall, this firewall is essential to a person without a hardware firewall, as it protects exceptionally well against a wide variety of different attacks; while simultaneously using up surprisingly low system resources, allowing your computer to run at it's optimum speed.
