You may notice some antivirus with a firewall, while some do not. If you are using Comodo Internet Security suite, you will have the option of antivirus and firewall components installed separately. This may cause problems in your mind: do I need antivirus and firewall?
The simple answer is yes, you need to firewall installed on your computer. Firewall provides important protection from intruders.
This raises the second question: If you need to install firewall, why Comodo allows users to selectively install it?
This is because the Komodo believe you believe computer users know what is best to meet your computer and security requirements. For example: While we believe excellent Comodo firewall is clearly better than Windows comes with a free firewall, but the old system and memory limitations may make using Windows firewall is better. We want users to utilize Comodo’s antivirus advantage, only need to slightly change their configuration.
In some cases, the upgrade to Comodo antivirus and maintained using the Windows firewall can enjoy balance security and performance at the same time.
This is especially true because Windows Essential Antivirus provides only basic protection. To Comodo, the known viruses and malicious software threats “blacklist” is a line of defense. It is used to identify and deal with known threats, but we also use the white list of known safe files and behavior analysis to identify threats. Even if the threat is not clearly defined, our unique Default Deny architecture and sandbox also provide last line of defense to ensure that no malicious programs can access your system.
Windows Antivirus uses only the blacklist for the defense. If it fails, then sooner or later your computer is a threat affected.
That is why, if you have the other option from a firewall and Comodo Antivirus, you should select Antivirus. It is a protective layer that can solve threats to bypass the firewall.
Remember, we have been discussing on your computer may have limited situation, such as the use of old computers, and your computer has a performance problem. If not the case, then we would recommend that you choose the best combination: Firewall and AntiVirus . This will be the Komodo .
