Comodo Firewall Pro 3.0

I have been using quite a few either commercial or free firewalls in the past (including Norton Personal Firewall, ZoneAlarm, Seagate and probably few others I dont even remember) but I’ve got to tell you the truth folks… So far, none of the firewalls I’ve used managed to beat Comodo Firewall Pro 3.0. I’ve been using it for a few last months and I am completely satisfied with its performance, security, easy of use and user-friendly interface.

Comodo Firewall Pro 3.0.18.309 is the final and first release of Comodo Personal Firewall 3 and contains support for Vista, a new interface and a bunch of improved security features, including host intrusion protection, network-based firewall and an application analysis engine. The most important thing about Comodo is that it passes all known leak tests to ensure integrity of data entering and exiting your system. Comodo secures your system against internal attacks such as trojans, viruses, malicious software and also external attacks by hackers. Second appealing thing about Comodo is its simplicity. You don’t need to spend hours editing settings to harden the performance and security. Comodo works just fine with default settings. Even if you need to change something, it can easily be done with a single click.

The only thing I didn’t like is its way of getting information about your system after new installation. You will have to go through day or two of occasional permission pop-ups asking you whether Comodo should or should not trust certain application. The trusted applications are then added to the Safe list. Once it adapts to applications and software you use most often, it will become almost invisible and won’t ask about anything.

Interface

There are four tabs once you open Comodo control centre - Summary, Firewall, Defence+ and Miscellaneous.

The first one you see is the summary. It gives you the information about system status, ingoing and outgoing internet connections, condition of proactive defence (Defence+), traffic stats and more.

Under the Firewall tab, there are many options. You are able to manage stuff like defining a new trusted program, blocking a specific program, view active connections and many other specific features usual user wont ever need but thy can be very useful for more advanced users or when you are planning to use Comodo in your work or business.

Under the Defence+ tab, there is a lot of useful options such as ability to protect files and folders, quarantine a file, view and terminate processes, protection against registry changes and the list goes on.

Miscellaneous tab contains infromation about version of the firewall, you can check for updates, browse support forums to get help and more.

Conclusion

Have you been looking for an ideal firewall? No need to look further - you have found one. Combination of Comodo and proper antivirus will sufficiently protect your computer agains online dangers and will safe you a lot of time, too. I can only recommend this vintage piece of software.
