Protection & Mitigation: Firewalls

Firewalls are defence mechanisms that can be implemented in either hardware or software and serve to prevent unauthorized access to computers and networks.

Firewalls screen data passing through the device, filtering out that which may be deemed harmful.

Protect your computer by enabling or installing a firewall between your computer and the internet point of access.

If your computer has already been infected, the firewall will help limit the effect on your computers as well as hinder any efforts to spread via the internet.
