Firewall & Network Gateway

A firewall is a part of a computer network that is designed to block unauthorized access while permitting authorized communications. This firewall can be software running on a dedicated device, or it can be software running directly on a workstation or server computer, which inspects network traffic passing through it, and denies or permits passage based on a set of rules. A more sophisticated and useful tool is a  Unified Threat Management Network Gateway that performs many functions including firewall duties, NAT (Internet connection sharing), network traffic routing, traffic analysis & filtering, port-forwarding, VPN services, proxy server, default gateway for the LAN, and a variety of other network functions that logically reside at the at the "doorway" to your network.
