Firewall and its Types


In computing, a Firewall is a software/hardware or combination of hardware+software is a network security system that monitors and controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined protocols.

How does a firewall work?

firewall only allows those incoming connections that have been configured to accept. It isolates your computer from the internet while inspecting data packets as it arrives on either side of the firewall. then it is determined according to pre-determined rules where it should allow to pass or block. a firewall is responsible for checking the source and destination IP address on all the packets.

Types of firewalls

Firewall can be either software or hardware, depending on the type but good practice is to utilize both. the software version is installed onto a computer to monitor traffic through port numbers and applications. A Hardware version of a firewall is a piece of equipment installed between the network and gateway. an online mart place UAE, offers used/new firewalls at an affordable price with a 1-year warranty plus tech support.

Proxy firewall

Packet-filtering firewalls.

The packet filtering firewall filter IP packet based on source and destination IP address, and source and destination port. This type of firewall protection is the basic protection for a small network. for example, a cisco router with standard ACLs can filter information at layer 3. packet filtering work at the network layer. this type of firewall is very fast because there is not much logic going behind the decisions they make. They do not store any state information and are considered not to be very secure.

Stateful inspection firewall

In stateful inspection firewall, It allows or blocks traffic based on state, port, and protocols. These firewall monitor all activity from the moment a connection is established until it ended fully. stateful inspection firewall collects data regarding every connection made through it. All of these data points form profiles of safe connections. when any connection is attempted, it is checked against the list of attributes collected by the stateful firewall

A network address translation firewall makes it possible for multiple devices with their own Network address to connect to the internet using one IP address, keeping individual IP addresses hidden. It operates on the router to protect the private network. A network address firewall protects the identity of a network and does not show internal IP addresses to the internet.
