Firewalls are difference from Antivirus software and in this lesson we’ll examine in greater details what Firewalls are, what the differences are between hardware and software firewalls, and how the work to block unwanted connections that could be adverse to the computing and network systems we belong to.

You’ll learn the purpose of allow vs. deny rules, the various ways they can be configure and what the impact is of certain rules and why that is important.
