In this article, users will get know information about the firewall and also the applications of firewall. Firewall is much important for safeguarding the computer system. Firewall usually of two different types that are different for hardware and as different for the software usage. Here for the software you need to install on the computer PC. Simply speaking a firewall is like barrier or a shield which can form just like a layer between your PC and cyber space which helps to protect your unusual  ports either form inside or from outside. When you are connected to the Internet, you are constantly sending and receiving information with the help of ports that we called it as packets.what is firewall and why is it necessary

The firewall filters these packets to see if they meet certain criteria set by a series of rules and there after blocks the ports which are mismatch. By this it can prevent the transfer of data from your computer port to the other devices. It can even allows the data if criteria is matched. So if anyone is trying to hack your computer system unknowingly without any information to you can get protected with the help of this firewall.  This way, hackers cannot get inside and steal information such as bank account numbers and passwords from you.

What actually this Firewall do?

A firewall is acts as a protective barrier between your computer system and the rest of the computers which you are connected to. If any internet is available within you then it is visible to the outside world of your information with the help of web browser or any other websites which can read your data with the help of packets known as Ports. You are visible through this port only to the internet or any other server which can have ability even to connect you with the other system.

Normally port is service available to you and it is provided with some specific number based upon its usage if the port is for internal service then it may different number and similarly for outgoing data ports are different. Here is the idea of a firewall is to close all the open ports which you’re not using. If the firewall fails to do that it if it fails to close all the ports then it is for sure that someone can easily hack your computer with the open ports available to them.

There are mainly two categories which come under firewall that you can simply classify firewall in to two different types. One is software firewall which is similar to zone alarm. If you install on the computer system then it will safeguard your computer system by providing transfer of data through ports. So hacking of data may also be less because of this firewall as it protects your system. The other classification of firewall is hardware firewall which is a router that sits between your computer and the outside world. You can plug more computers with the help of these firewalls and each will be protected by the firewall that’s part of the router.
