Smart Firewall

May 7, 2010

The Smart Firewall monitors the communications between your computer and other computers on the Internet.
It also protects your computer from such common security problems as the following:

Improper connection attempts Warns you of connection attempts from other computers and of attempts by programs on your computer to connect to other computers
Port scans Cloaks the inactive ports on your computer and detects port scans
Intrusions Detects and blocks malicious traffic and attempts by outside users to attack your computer
A firewall blocks hackers and other unauthorized traffic, while it allows authorized traffic to pass. Turning off Smart Firewall reduces your system protection. Always ensure that the Smart Firewall is turned on.
