Why does Prisma Firewall protect us?
The rapid evolution of local and global networks enlarged the risk of computer exposure to Internet aggressions. The attacks can take the forms of intruders (hackers, viruses, worms) which can affect the information, data or documents stocked in computer.
There are two solutions to protect data: not using the Internet and the computer networks or using the firewall programs. These programs protect information from the computer by blocking the access of the dangers coming from the outside.
The most important dangers which can affect the data from PC:
Other PC from the network can access directly personal information using some Windows options like NetBIOS, FTP, HTTP.
By means of accessed Internet pages or even from your own network, you can "attract" cookies or programs which can extract personal information from PC.
Some confidential personal data (like banking information, address, phone number, email address or password) can be disclosed by filling in online application forms from several sites.
Spyware or Trojan Horses applications can hack into your PC which can erase, steal confidential information or can transform your computer in a zombie which will attack other computers.
