The firewall controls all network traffic to and from the system by allowing or denying individual network connections based on specified filtering rules. It provides protection against attacks from remote computers and enables blocking of some services. It also provides antivirus protection for HTTP, POP3 and IMAP protocols.


Scanning exceptions

ESET Cyber Security Pro does not scan encrypted protocols HTTPS, POP3S and IMAPS.

Firewall configuration can be found in Setup > Firewall. It allows you to adjust the filtering mode, rules and detailed settings. You can also access more detailed settings of the program from here.

If you switch Block all network traffic: disconnect network to ENABLED, all inbound and outbound communication will be blocked by the firewall. Use this option only if you suspect critical security risks requiring the system to be disconnected from the network.
