Private Firewall – Free Desktop Firewall Software
Private Firewall, free firewall software is a ideal windows firewall replacement software that integrated desktop firewall and multi-layered intrusion prevention technology to protect your computer. Previously this windows firewall software used to be a shareware, but now Privacyware thankfully decided to turn it into a freeware. Plus more, the Private Firewall installation is pretty straight forward and a simple user interface makes Private firewall a breeze to manage.
This free private firewall delivers signature-less, real-time protection from known or new spyware, viruses, hacking techniques, and other intrusions on Windows desktops and servers. Meanwhile, it also offers network security features like port tracking, URL and packet filtering and application/system behavior modeling and anomaly detection components to protect both inbound and outbound traffics of user PCs. Plus more, Private Firewall comes with a traffic-light-like interface where users can simply block all network connections, allow all connections or revert to the configured settings with the simple click of a button.
However, Private Firewall has some weaknesses especially the cookies filtering, which might cause harm to user’s computer. So, Privatefirewall would work much better with an anti spyware supplement.
PrivateFirewall works on 32-bit and 64-bit of Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7, including all versions of Windows Server.
