What Firewall Cannot Do
The most common misconception about firewalls is that they guarantee security for your network.

A firewall cannot and does not guarantee that your network is 100% secure.

Firewalls cannot offer any protection against inside attacks. A high percentage of security incidents today come from inside the trusted network.

Everything not specifically permitted is denied.
Everything not specifically denied is permitted.

Anti-virus design to deal with maliciously design programs.
firewall is setup to block access from unwanted network communication.
Firewalls AND Anti-virus
In general, firewall cannot product against viruses, for this reason we use anti-virus.
However, many security suites such as those offered by MacAfee and Norton offer the complete protection.
Some software firewalls such as Zone Alarm Pro may contain limited virus protection features.
Hardware Firewall
They protect every machine on a local network from the outside world (internet)

A software firewall is running directly on a computer.
