Information applies to:
The firewall unit monitors all the network connections, blocking or allowing them according to the rules configured. Implements detection and blocking of IDS intrusions.
This protection allows the administrator to configure the firewall performance:
From version 6.0 of Endpoint Protection, it is possible to enable/disable the firewall for workstations and/or servers for each profile. The Default profile, for example, is configured by default with the firewall enabled for workstations and disabled for servers.
The firewall settings can be defined from the Endpoint Protection console through four tabs: General, Programs, Intrusion prevention and System.
Firewall settings - General tab
The general firewall settings are established in this section.
Firewall settings - Programs tab
In this section the administrator can define the connection permissions of the different applications that will run on the network computers. There a series of rules predefined by Panda which establish permissions for common applications.
In this section the administrator can define the types of intrusions to be blocked.
Unlike program rules, system rules affect all network communications. They work at protocol, port and service level, and are more important than program rules.
In this section you can view, modify and delete system rules, or create new ones. Additionally, Panda provides a set of defined rules.
To save the changes made to the settings (in all tabs), click OK.
The changes will be applied in the next protection update. Updates are carried out every four hours by default. However, the update frequency can be configured in the Updates section of the Windows and Linux tab.
Updates can also be performed on-demand by right-clicking the Panda icon in the Windows system tray and selecting Update.
