are wide open to attack inside the perimeter firewall through compromised laptops, unauthorized portable storage devices and employees' use of peer-to-peer file-sharing applications. Desktop firewalls have evolved from personal home defense applications to enterprise-level security tools, and now the Senforce Portable Fire-wall Plus (SPF+) presents a viable endpoint security solution for SMBs.

Senforce has a solid understanding of small businesses' needs. SPF+ is easy to install, configure and maintain with its powerful wizards and intuitive GUI--a prime consideration for overtaxed admins.

We encountered no problems when installing SPF+, even with another personal firewall running. As its name implies, SPF+ is highly portable, with the built-in ability to automatically learn its network environment. The user clicks a taskbar icon to select Work, Home, Alternate or Unknown location, and SPF+ will interpret the type of network by discovering the connected NICs for protocol settings, making configuration extremely easy. Security policies were simple to set up for both Home and Work environments.
