June 10, 2008 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) Comodo (http://www.comodo.com), a global leader in Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, has announced that Firewall Pro was named one of the Top 10 Essential (and free) Security Downloads For Windows by Computerworld.com. The May 28, 2008 article recommends ten essential security downloads that are free and that "can protect your privacy and security." This is the second time in the past few months that ComputerWorld has recognized Comodo Firewall Pro as one of the best available free firewall solutions.
The article, written by Preston Gralla, said, "there are plenty of free firewalls out there, but my favorite is Comodo Firewall Pro, which provides top-notch protection from both inbound and outbound threats." With Comodo Firewall Pro, inbound and outbound files are stopped at the firewall, and the user is prompted to allow or block the file before proceeding.
The article continued, "It offers other types of protection as well, including what it calls Defense+, which keeps you safe in several ways, including locking down certain files and folders so that they can't be altered." When in Defense+ mode, the user can specify files and folders that cannot be altered, ultimately preserving a computer's system health.
"The trusted Internet is something that we are committed to," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect of Comodo. "We prove that commitment by offering best-in-class solutions that are free."
