Free for personal use, Sygate Personal Firewall provides best-of-breed security in a user-friendly interface, protecting your PC from hackers, Trojan horses, and DOS attacks. New features include deep-packet inspection, anti-application-hijacking, a log dampener, and enhanced logging. Sygate Personal Firewall is the first free PC firewall to offer protection from malicious code intrusions, keeping the information on your PC safe and private.

Sygate Personal Firewall, built on Sygate Personal Firewall Pro's award-winning technology, is the most user-friendly PC firewall and personal desktop security solution. It is the first bi-directional intrusion defense system designed for home users while with advanced protocol driver-level protection and code-insertion prevention. It ensures your personal computer is completely protected from malicious hackers and other intruders while preventing unauthorized access from your computer to a network. In essence, it makes your protected machines invisible to the outside world. That makes Sygate Personal Firewall a must-have security measure for any PC that connects to a private network or the public Internet. Once you've been compromised, every other network you connect to is at risk; including your home, business and online bank accounts. No matter where you use your computer, whether remote or behind a corporate firewall, whether dial-up or an always-on broadband Internet connection, it gives you complete confidence that your precious business, personal, financial and other data is safe and secure. If that isn't enough, Sygate Personal Firewall includes advanced active-scan vulnerability assessment to pinpoint your weaknesses and fine-tune your security policy.

Sygate Personal Firewall delivers unobtrusive, highly configurable, enforceable rule-based security policy by constantly operating in the background of your PC. Policies regarding applications, trusted IP addresses, ports, protocols and scheduling can be customized to support and secure any network configurations or requirements. Designed with high performance in mind, it delivers top-notch security without sacrificing your computing power. Whether you're working, banking, gaming or chatting, it protects your computer by actively looking for hostile intruders and Trojan horse applications. If an intrusion attempt occurs, it detects it in real-time and blocks it by default. You are immediately notified and, with your approval, your Internet connection is adjusted to prohibit further attacks. Likewise, if an unauthorized application on your system attempts to access the Internet, Sygate Personal Firewall blocks it by default, advises you of the situation and waits for your approval before proceeding further.

Sygate Personal Firewall is extremely easy to use. Even the most inexperienced web-surfer can enjoy the Internet with complete confidence and security. It easily installs on your system by automatically detecting your Internet connection and settings. Simply turn it on and you are ready to go with advanced protection for all of your networking needs.
