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.


Scanning exceptions

ESET Endpoint Security for macOS does not scan encrypted protocols HTTPS, POP3S, and IMAPS.

You can find firewall configuration in Setup > Firewall. This configuration enables you to adjust the filtering mode, rules, and detailed settings. You can also access more detailed settings of the program from here.

If you enable Block all network traffic: disconnect network, all inbound and outbound communication is blocked by the firewall. Use this option only if you suspect critical security risks require that the system be disconnected from the network.
