Norman Personal Firewall Review

Provided by:

TopTenREVIEWS - Bronze Award - Awarded for excellence in design, useability and feature set

"TopTen REVIEWS Bronze Award" winner, Norman Personal Firewall by Norman, not only protects your computer from intruders and hackers, it also blocks little spyware and adware nuisances. This program will give you an extra security edge if you have children at home you'd like to protect from undesirable items online.


Feature Set:  Excellent

With Norman Personal Firewall, you can set a password to prevent someone from changing your settings. You can also set parental control filters to restrict online access by blocking specific contents or locations. Norman Personal Firewall also claims to block ads, but the Norman points out that many websites use nonstandard techniques to display them; these ads they cannot block. Most website ads came through Norman Personal Firewall's filter in our tests.

Or you can customize your settings to allow you to stop or control active X scripts, JavaScript's, popup windows, and applets if you don't want them coming up all the time. Finally you can control cookies, this will help you keep hijackers from taking over your default start page and search engine. If you're a beginner or novice, this might be the firewall you're looking for. If you need a firewall with more features and customizability, consider one of the top firewall products.

There are several ways you can customize Norman Personal Firewall. You can allow all access to your computer, restrict all access to your computer, or you can opt to have the program ask for help whenever it detects an attempt to access your computer. This gives you the chance to view details and make an informed decision. You can opt to have Norman Personal Firewall remember your decision to apply it to future connections, allow it for one session only, or just that instance. You can also set up rules to manage incoming and outgoing data, such as cookies.


Ease of Use:  Excellent

We had no trouble with most of Norman Personal Firewall's firewall program. But after we set up parental control filtering policies we found it difficult to get them working properly. We entered many website addresses and keywords into the three categories: advertising blocking, website filtering, and content filtering.


Ease of Installation:  Excellent

Norman Personal Firewall is simple to install and set up. Norman provides a wizard to walk you through the installation and a help button if you are uncertain about which settings to choose.


Reliability:  Excellent

Norman Personal Firewall passed our vulnerability test; Norman protects from Trojans, keeps a computer stealth (hidden online) and does not allow any browser information (including the last website visited) to be visible. Also, Norman Personal Firewall is one of few firewall programs that-once configured properly—successfully blocked cookies (bits of information stored on your computer by the websites you visit).


Help/Support:  Excellent

Norman Personal Firewall offers good help within the software and a FAQ section online. They offer detailed explanations and examples to describe their filtering categories.

But finding a form to ask technical questions online is a challenge; we had to visit three different web pages before reaching the right form.


Summary:  

Norman Personal Firewall is simple to use. And not only does this program protect your computer from danger, it also protects your viewers from offensive content. Although Norman Personal Firewall doesn't offer all the power you can get from top firewall products, Norman Personal Firewall comes with a variety of predefined rules that make customization simple for anyone—novice to expert. If you are new to firewalls, this software may be the right choice for you.
