Webroot Desktop Firewall keeps your data safe while also keeping hackers out.
It offers excellent two-way protection. Novice users will appreciate the easy setup of Webroot Desktop Firewall, while experts can fine tune it to their advanced needs using the sophisticated features and options. Webroot Desktop Firewall acts as a data gatekeeper for your PC, and monitors which Internet traffic is allowed in and out. You determine which programs on your PC can access the Internet.
Through a simple set up process, instantly authorize programs you trust, such as your Internet and e-mail programs, to connect to the Internet, and block any suspicious programs that may take over your PC, like remote Trojans, worms or zombie programs. Turn the Stealth Mode option on to make your PC invisible to intruders searching for vulnerable computers across the Internet, decreasing your chances of an attack. If you experience unexplained computer activity, use the Internet Block option to immediately stop all Internet traffic in and out of your PC. This "panic button" is a quick way to protect your data until you determine the cause of the activity.
Webroot Desktop Firewall lets you share your files and printers with other computers on your local area network without unnecessarily exposing your PC to online threats. Review the Webroot Desktop Firewall log to see if hackers have attempted to access your PC, or if unknown programs are trying to prompt outbound communications.
