Firewall Unleashed

Firewalls are used to monitor and control the inbound and outbound traffic on the protected network. They have an ability to block and allow the internal as well as external services within the network. Before allowing access to the service, a firewall may also force the client / user to pass through an authentication. Sometimes a firewall can be also used in IPSEC tunnels as a platform. It monitors security-related events.
