iolo Personal Firewall™

OverviewFeatures and BenefitsSystem Requirements

iolo Personal Firewall™ blocks unwanted communication to and from your PC, keeping your private information safe from hackers, cyber-criminals, and identity thieves.

The proprietary IntelliDefense™ system takes out the guesswork normally associated with firewalls by using a comprehensive database to automatically decide which programs are safe and which are not. Now you can securely work or play without the hassle of being constantly prompted to monitor your PC’s traffic.

IntelliDefense™ eliminates frustrating guesswork
The IntelliDefense™ proprietary database holds thousands of detailed program profiles and classifications that:
  • Allows the firewall to take the guesswork and constant prompts normally associated with Internet security by automatically permitting communication from safe and trusted programs, and blocking communication from unsafe programs.
  • Allows you to get comprehensive information about suspicious programs attempting to communicate to or from your PC so you always know what is coming in or out, and why.

Advanced zone-based security
An intuitive interface lets you quickly set up varying communication security levels, designate certain computers and Web sites as "trusted", block or allow access for specific applications, and much more.

Ultra-secure program policies
  • Prevents sneaky malware, spyware, or viruses from tampering with firewall programs or policies – a common method used to bypass firewall security.
  • Ensures only the programs you trust are permitted to communicate to and from your PC.

Protection from program hijacking
  • Blocks hackers from using new methods that can bypass most firewalls where illegitimate "zombie" or "slave" programs are used to gain communication access.
  • Prevents sophisticated malware from secretly invading your PC to spread worms, viruses, and other dangerous programs.

Stealth mode
Makes your PC invisible to hackers, spyware, and other threats seeking to break in and cause damage.
