Adaptive Automatic Protection - Average and Novice users.
For both Outbound and Inbound Firewall protection, there isno manual configuration

Whitelisting - Simplified Program Setup
Digitally signed files from trusted vendors will run from the protected 'Download

DefenseWall Personal Firewall automatically blocks open listening ports of all the
