Personal firewalls explained—for remote corporate and home users.
In today's work environment, increasing numbers of mobile employees are using PCs, laptops, and handheld devices to connect to corporate servers. That's great for productivity, but it can also pose a security nightmare. Many of these remote systems are at best minimally protected against hackers and other intruders, which means they can provide an easy avenue into the network. An effective—and cost effective—way to address this liability is through the use of personal firewalls.
In Personal Firewalls for Administrators and Remote Users, security professional Lisa Yeo presents this vital security technology in a format that system administrators and home users alike can use to zero in on exactly what they need to know to secure their computers against outside intruders. In her clear and engaging style, Yeo explains everything from the basics of home computer security and networking to advanced topics such as interpreting log files and troubleshooting, configuring, and maintaining personal firewalls. Along the way, you'll learn how to choose a personal firewall from the products available today, how to deploy personal firewalls in home and corporate environments, and more. This book describes
