Recommended Firewalls – Top 10 list

firewallAfter I selected top 10 antispyware and top 10 antivirus programs previously, the next logical step is to select 10 best personal firewalls. After all, a reliable firewall is just as important as antispyware and antivirus programs, if not more. A firewall can block intruders such as hackers and malicious software like spyware, viruses and everything else that is not supposed to gain access to your PC. Firewalls can prevent serious damage!

Sure, you may have your Windows firewall and there is nothing wrong with that, but it’s also wise to look at other options for better security.

My top choices are:

  1. Zone Alarm Pro 2010  – buy for $39.95
  2. Outpost Firewall Pro – $59.95
  3. eConceal Pro – $34.95
  4. Norman Personal Firewall – $29.95
  5. Online Armor – $39.95
  6. Comodo Firewall – FREE
  7. McAfee Personal Firewall – now part of McAfee Internet Security
  8. Prisma Firewall – $29.50
  9. NeT Firewall – $49.95
  10. Injoy Firewall –  $60

If you are interested in other options, you may want to look at BlackIce, Trend Micro PC-Cillin, The Shield, Webroot Desktop Firewall, Sunbelt-Kerio Personal Firewall, Ashampoo, Eset Firewall and F-Secure Internet Security.

I’d like to read your opinions and experiences if you have used any of the above.
