Weekly Activity On the first day of the week we held a meeting with Gül Ayd?n,who is the head of the test and evaluation department.
We introduced our projects and they were informed about them.Immediately after the meeting I interviewed my manager and got information about the last missing parts.After these meetings I went to work to make the final touches of the project.I concentrated on hardware and software firewalls. I solved their structures and comparisons.The closure of missing parts and the achievements of this week can be summarized as follows; -Hardware firewall, the total cost is easily calculated at first. There are device and update prices.
In the case of software firewalls, the cost of hardware, operating system, database, and backup should also be taken into consideration while the cost is being calculated. -Hardware Firewall has high performance because it is specially designed. Software firewall performance depends on many parameters.
-Hardware Firewall, security is very high because it is custom designed. Only certain ports are open. In software firewalls, security vulnerabilities arise from operating system and other applications. -Hardware Firewall is easy to install. In general, operations can be done through a single interface. -Hardware Firewall, updating is easy. A single firmware is installed.
Software firewalls are also hard to update. All applications need to be updated separately. -Hardware Firewall is generally not upgradeable. Software firewalls can also be upgraded with hardware limits. (Processor, RAM, disk, etc.) Hardware Firewalls Hardware firewalls can be purchased as a stand-alone product but more recently hardware firewalls are typically found in broadband routers, and should be considered an important part of your system and network set-up, especially for anyone on a broadband connection. Hardware firewalls can be effective with little or no configuration, and they can protect every machine on a local network. Most hardware firewalls will have a minimum of four network ports to connect other computers, but for larger networks, business networking firewall solutions are available.
Software Firewalls For individual home users, the most popular firewall choice is a software firewall. Software firewalls are installed on your computer (like any software) and you can customize it; allowing you some control over its function and protection features. A software firewall will protect your computer from outside attempts to control or gain access your computer, and, depending on your choice of software firewall, it could also provide protection against the most common Trojan programs or e-mail worms. Many software firewalls have user defined controls for setting up safe file and printer sharing and to block unsafe applications from running on your system. Additionally, software firewalls may also incorporate privacy controls, web filtering and more. The downside to software firewalls is that they will only protect the computer they are installed on, not a network, so each computer will need to have a software firewall installed on it.
