Firewall for Linux Product Features

De volgende features staan vermeld in de Product Guide van Firewall for Linux (PDF):

  • Stateful firewall — Keeps track of the network connections. A stateful firewall includes a state table that dynamically stores information about active connections created by allow rules.
  • Regular mode — Regular mode allows and blocks traffic strictly according to the defined policy.
  • Adaptive mode — When the network packet matches a rule’s conditions, the associated action defined in the rule is executed. If no matching rule is found, the network packet is allowed, and a rule is created to allow similar packets later.
  • Trusted networks — Define networks that can include subnets, ranges, or a single IP address that can be used while creating firewall rules.
  • FTP inspection — Creates dynamic rules for FTP data connections automatically, by actively monitoring the FTP commands on the control channel.
  • Common manageability for Linux, Windows, and Mac — McAfee ePO-based policies can be enforced on Windows, Linux, and Mac systems.
  • FDQN support — Supports FDQN-based rule creation. • CLI support — Supports Command Line Interface for managing the firewall.
  • Dev Ops tools support — Supports silent installation and command-line configuration that can be used for automation through scripts and Dev Ops tools.
  • Firewall groups — Organize firewall rules of similar criteria under rule groups, and provide better rule management capabilities.
  • Time-based firewall — Configure firewall rules that are enforced only for a specific time period during the week.
  • Supported protocols — TCP, UDP, and ICMP.
  • Product management — Complete management of the product through McAfee ePO including deployment and policy enforcement.
  • Standalone mode — Ensures that the software can be managed without McAfee ePO.
  • Rule retention — Retain firewall rules configured through CLI, even if the host is managed by McAfee ePO.
  • Rule-level logging — Supports rule-level logging, including Syslog support.
