Tiny Software Inc. announced the release of its Tiny
Personal Firewall, a firewall that protects PCs before Windows launches.
Unlike other firewalls, Tiny Personal Firewall is positioned
between the network interface adapter and the OS so that the PC is protected
before the OS boots. This eliminates the possibility of a Trojan horse invading
the machine during that stage.
Tiny Personal Firewall features MD5 signature support, as
well as three levels of predefined security rules. It also offers the ability
to customize the rules and features remote administration.
