Personal Firewalls

Consider installing a personal firewall on each computer on the network.

If you have notebooks/lap-top computers that are used in locations outside of the office, each one of those should have a personal firewall. They will not be protected by your corporate firewall when they are outside of the office. The same thing goes for stationary computers used from home offices.

A personal firewall typically has different features from a regular firewall. One of the things a personal firewall can do is to enforce policies about which applications are allowed to communicate with the outside world. If someone manages to download a program to your computer, that sends off information to the Internet, a personal firewall may protect you while a regular firewall probably will not.
