What is a firewall?

A firewall is a layer of security between your network and the Internet. Since a router is the main connection from a network to the Internet, the firewall function is merged into this device. Every network should have a firewall to protect its privacy.


What is a router?

A router receives and sends data on computer networks, they are often confused with network hubs, modems or network switches.
