Sygate Personal Firewall Free 5.6.2808
Set the standards for modern firewalls
Sygate Personal Firewall Free is one of the old applications that used to set the bar when it came to computer security. The level of protection offered by this firewall is among the best and it is now the foundation of the 'Smart Firewall' you will find in Symantec's Norton Internet Security.
Easy way to protect your virtual identity
This firewall is based on Sygate Personal Firewall’s same IPD/IDS technology and provides you with robust online security. This firewall, included in the Norton Internet Security product, provides a simple, unified way to stay protected from online threats.
Only suitable for older operating systems
However, the application is only capable of running on versions of Windows until XP, making it obsolete for most modern computers. Still, if you're using an older machine that needs a simple tool to defend the computer, Sygate Personal Firewall can actually be the top choice.
Please note that since the developer is no longer making it available as a standalone product, Sygate Personal Firewall receives the default three-star rating, which doesn't reflect our opinion on the product.
All in all, Sygate Personal Firewall Free can still be of help for computers running older Windows versions. It does not take a lot of getting used to and is light on system resources. It is the backbone of modern firewall services nowadays, thus deserving a seat at the winners table.
