What are Network Firewalls?

A network firewall is software that acts as a gateway for traffic coming into and out of a network. These firewalls prevent unauthorized users from accessing private data or intercepting messages and data as it is transmitted to users on an intranet or other network. Firewalls generally block data packets from passing through based on a defined set of security rules.
