If I Have a Firewall do I Need an Antivirus?

Question

If I have a firewall do I need an antivirus?

Yes. A firewall will not protect you from viruses and other malware. A firewall limits outside network access to a computer or local network by blocking or restricting ports. This helps prevent your computer from communicating with other computers on the network and on the Internet you may not want.

If you wish to truly protect your computer from potential threats we suggesting having one firewall and antivirus installed on your computer or at the very least a firewall enabled on your router.
