Key Features

  • Stateful Firewall
    Unlike most packet filters, WinRoute Firewall performs stateful packet inspection. This means that it keeps track of previous communication and, based on this knowledge, can better determine whether traffic is legitimate.

    This stateful packet inspection is accompanied by NAT, which translates multiple private addresses used in the local network to one public address. Hiding all computers behind one public IP address reduces the risk that outsiders will uncover your LANs topography.

  • User Management
    WinRoute Firewall provides user-based management of Internet access. Different users or groups of users can have different access rights. These rights can be further fine-tuned by applying time intervals, limiting users to specific activities (e.g. using FTP clients) during a specified time period. Administrators may also track and log user behavior.

  • Ease of Use
    WinRoute Firewall has a clean and intuitive user interface, making it the easienst firewall in its class to manage.
