A firewall is a device that prevents unauthorized access to a host or a network either from within the corporate environment or from the public network, such as the Internet. Generally, there are two types of firewalls:

A hardware firewall takes the form of a closed proprietary appliance with its own operating system. This is considered faster, but a bit expensive.
A software firewall is installed on a computer, and it utilizes the computer’s operating system. Firewalls use either hardware or software rules to filter incoming and outgoing traffic to the network.
