Omniquad Personal Firewall is a personal security system to protect your computers from unauthorised access over the LAN and / Internet.
Personal Firewall is a software application used to protect a single Internet-connected computer from intruders. Personal firewall protection is especially useful for users with "always-on" connections such as DSL or Cable modem. Such connections use a static IP address that makes them especially vulnerable to potential hackers . Often compared to anti-virus applications , personal firewalls work in the background at the device (link layer) level to protect the integrity of the system from malicious computer code by controlling Internet connections to and from a user's computer, filtering inbound and outbound traffic, and alerting the user to attempted intrusions.
Some of the features of Firewall are as follows:
a. 4-level packet filter firewall protection for the local network / dial up/ ASDL and cable modem connections
b. Global lock immediately shuts down all net access
c. Define & enforce trusted zones
d. Alerts for denied network connection attempts
e. Real-time network activity indicators
f. 3-level program control intercepting connection attempts by any program on your computer
g. Automatic lock shuts down internet access after specified period of inactivity
