Still running on Windows Firewall? Perhaps it is time that you should move on and install a reasonably useful firewall. There are a couple over the Internet, such as ZoneAlarm. However, if you are interested in free firewall solution other than using ZoneAlarm, you can try Jetico Personal Firewall 2.0 Beta.
With Jetico Personal Firewall, it does what firewall usually do; that is, to protect your computer from unwanted hacker’s intrusion and from potentially maclicious programs secretly residing in your computer attempting to manipulate the system registry. This software has three levels of protection, i.e., low-level network packets filtering, application-level network events filtering and filtering of user-level process activity.
As quoted by majorgeeks,
Jetico Personal Firewall checks every packet that comes in or out of your computer. Using configuration sets for Security Policy you define how your computer is connected to the local network and the whole Internet. Your computer may be completely hidden from any unfriendly attempts to access your hard drive while you are able to access any web sites you want and you decide on which applications are allowed to access Internet and which are not.
Before installing the program, it is important to read the Installation Note, which says:
- * Jetico Personal Firewall v2 is beta software. It has numerous improvements and may contain bugs.
- * Please do not use it on production systems.
- * Please uninstall previous versions of Jetico Personal Firewall software before installing this one.
- * Jetico Personal Firewall package does not contain Configuration Wizard program.
While there is potential inJetico Personal Firewall becoming one of the favourite home user program, do note that it is still in development stage. Nothing is to be guaranteed.
