Overview

The Firewall protects the endpoint from inbound and outbound unauthorized connection attempts.

Note

This module is available for Windows for workstations.

The Firewall's functionality relies on network profiles. The profiles are based on trust levels, which have to be defined for each network.

Important

While you can run multiple firewalls at once, it's recommended that you only keep one firewall active at a time. Having more than one firewall on your machine can cause conflicts and problems like prioritization and order of processing, leaving your machine vulnerable.

The Firewall detects each new connection, compares the adapter information for that connection with the information from the existing profiles and applies the correct profile. For detailed information on how the profiles are applied, refer to Network settings.

Note

Availability and functioning of this feature may differ depending on the license included in your current plan.
