Re: Webroot Desktop Firewall vs COMODO Firewall vs Windows Firewall

Webroot Desktop Firewall : Although originally designed as a standalone product, Webroot Desktop Firewall component was added to the product when it was re-launched in October 2007. Webroot Desktop Firewall is designed to fill in the gaps in the Window?s defense system, which commonly has vulnerabilities that allow hackers to gain unauthorized access to users? PCs. This feature cloaks the IP address of the computer and monitors Internet traffic coming in and out of the PC. Using multi-layer intrusion prevention technology, the software blocks intrusions by using a desktop firewall, port manager, URL filter, process monitor, and application/system anomaly detection. The smart configuration feature built into this element of the software ?learns? the habits of the user and defines rules based on those habitual activities, setting the security accordingly.

Re: Webroot Desktop Firewall vs COMODO Firewall vs Windows Firewall

Comodo Firewall Pro is a freeware firewall developed by Comodo Group that provides protection on a Microsoft Windows operating system from both inbound and outbound attacks. Comodo also has an open source firewall for Linux based systems called Trustix. While on a 2006 independent review consisting of outbound application filtering tests and leak tests, version 1.1.005 gained only a medium score, on another independent review based on leak tests in 2008, version 3.0.21.329 received 100% on all tests, the highest rating along with Online Armor Personal Firewall 2.1.0.119 Version 3.0 includes HIPS (Host Intrusion Prevention System) technology called Defense+, to protect a computer from unknown attacks. Comodo Firewall Pro has also been integrated into Comodo Internet Security.

Windows Firewall is the firewall service included with desktop and server releases of Microsoft Windows from Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 onwards. Prior to the release of Windows XP Service Pack 2 in 2004, it was known as Internet Connection Firewall.

I used to use Sygate, but it was discontinued quite a long time ago, so about a month or so ago I switched to Comodo. Seems pretty good so far, I like it.
