The Pro version includes a comprehensive Intrusion Protection System (IPS) which includes IDS, DoS protection, and Trojan protection which sets this program high above other personal firewalls.
Sygate Personal Best Firewall Pro is the ultimate desktop security solution trusted by professionals and relied upon by millions of users.
Network Layer — Secure Internet Connections
Halt Trojan Attacks
It is the first personal firewall that offers real protocol driver-level protection, preventing hostile programs such as Trojan Horses and malicious mobile code from accessing the network using their own protocol driver. With newly added network layer protection measures and existing application level protection, Sygate Personal Best Firewall Pro provides complete security from the network to the application layer.
Content Layer — Secure Trusted Traffic
Prevent Fraudulent Traffic
It is the first personal firewall with an application-based intrusion detection system (IDS). Network layer protection can ensure the inbound network packets are legitimate, but it can do little about the contents hiding in the packets. The high performance intrusion detection engine in Sygate Personal Firewall Pro monitors network traffic content, and uses pattern matching to detect a variety of attacks and probes, such as buffer overflows and stealth port scans.
Application Layer — Secure Component Integrity
Stop Application Hi-Jacking
It secures systems from intrusions that exploit vulnerabilities in applications to execute attacks. It verifies the integrity of every application that attempts to communicate through a fingerprint that includes a MD5 checksum. In addition to that, Sygate Personal Firewall Pro authenticates application dynamic link libraries (DLLs), preventing hostile programs that masquerade as authorized applications from compromising users
