VisNetic Firewall - A Software Firewall Key Features :
- Stateful Packet Inspection:
Stateful inspection firewalls determine whether packets can get through the firewall based on the protocol, port, and source and destination addresses.
- Port Scan Detection:
VisNetic Firewall detects the seven most common forms of port scans, alerting you with a log entry and optionally automatically banning the IP address of the scanner, ensuring that they are "cut off" before they can discover any useful information about your system.
- SYN Flood Detection:
A SYN Flood is a common type of denial of service (DoS) attack used against servers. When launching a SYN Flood, an attacker bombards you with so many connection requests that your computer is unable to accept legitimate connections, effectively shutting down your web, email, FTP or VPN server. VisNetic Firewall employs SYN cookies to protect you from SYN Flood attacks.
- Remote Administration:
Using the remote administration component of the Server version of VisNetic Firewall, you can now remotely administer any VisNetic Firewall using an encrypted communications link.
- IP Address Ban List:
VisNetic Firewall lets you block IP addresses or ranges of addresses to prevent unwanted connection attempts. This can be particularly effective in stopping repeated requests from a hacker who is trying a large number of hacks, looking for one that works.
- HTTP Filtering:
Using VisNetic Firewall HTTP Filtering, you can prevent intrusion attempts targeted at your web server by screening requests and automatically banning the offender IP address, preventing further access.
- MAC Address Filtering:
VisNetic Firewall now has the ability to filter traffic based on MAC addresses. Because a MAC address is specific to one individual network interface, this feature is particularly useful if you want to allow or block traffic from a particular computer whose IP address may change.
VisNetic Firewall's memory requirements are the same as the minimum required to run the operating system on the computer that VisNetic Firewall is installed on.
