"Hard to tell"

January 28, 2008  |  By sweetdragonlady

 |  Version: Web Wall 1.2.07

Pros

???

Cons

NOT for even those with some computer knowledge. First thing the program asks for is "domain name" and "IP address" and yes I know what those are but one computer can have more than one of each. On that same page it asks for "listening port" and "public listening port" as I had no idea what that meant I called my internet service provider. He said that this program would do me no good as I don't have a server. So I'm Sure if you understand what the thing is asking for, or have a friend that can tell you, then you'll do great with it. Otherwise, find something different.

"The search ends here."

April 03, 2007  |  By santuccie

 |  Version: Web Wall 1.2.07

Pros

I found this product completely by chance, and it is the only freebie I've found thus far whose IPS employs the positive model. It is extremely light on resources, yet it should be able to block malicious attacks (within normal broadband download limits) years from now.

The positive security model works by admitting pre-defined, whitelisted protocols, and blocking everything else. This is currently the ultimate power in the software IPS realm, ideal for users who place Internet security at a paramount value. A more familiar name in this league would be Citrix.

Every external exploit test (I ain't talking about port scanning) I have tried on this thing has failed. I have absolute confidence in WebWall's protection against Internet attacks over a standard, broadband connection. Next item of business: leaktests (outbound protection).

Cons

Interface opens maximized when you boot into Windows. This should be minimized rather than closed, otherwise you have no protection. This could confuse a novice.

Positive security models produce more false positives than the more common, negative security models. While the average user would never know, it is possible such a firewall could restrict activities that more prolific users (i.e. corporations) need.
