Security through Firewall to Prevent Unauthorized Access on Networks

Kapil Garg, Rekha Jain


The computer network and internet network are designed to connect two or more computers which are located in any location in this world so that they can exchange any information with each other. With the increasing number of security threats, it’s a severe challenge to develop a flexible securityoriented approach. In this paper, we will discuss different types of security threats and how firewalls detect them. A firewall may be an association security contraption that screens drawing nearer and dynamic association traffic and allows or squares data packages maintained by a social affair of wellbeing rules. Basically, its main aim is to protect the user from threats and monitor their activities.
