In the world of computers, a firewall is a network security system (hardware and/or software-based) that monitors and controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic, forming a barrier between a trusted an untrusted network, based on predetermined security rules. Firewall security attempts to block the spread of computer attacks, virus, phishing, trojan, spyware, malware, spam.

Evolving Expectations for Enterprise Security, Key Insights on Securing Networks Against Modern Cyber Threats
The threat landscape is ever changing. Enterprises must defend against a range of threats such as zero-day attacks, advanced persistent threats (APTs), polymorphic malware, evasion tactics, bots/automated attacks, and insider threats. These security challenges are then compounded by unprecedented levels of infrastructure extensions introduced by new technologies such as cloud and mobile devices. The resulting borderless networks present myriad opportunities for threat actors to exploit to gain illicit access, steal data, or commit fraud. It is in the context of this harrowing threat landscape that the need for the next evolution of enterprise security solutions is more pressing than ever.
