All about Firewalls (Pingdom Podcast #22)


In this show, we talk to Nicolai Solling, Director of Technology Services at help AG, about security in general and firewalls in particular.

We discuss that Panda Security reported that in Q1 of 2012, 6 million new malware samples were created. We also mention the latest Internet Security Threat Report from Symantec, but we’ll cover it in more detail next week (send us questions or comments, please). Then, as the main focus of this show, we talk about firewalls for both home and enterprise users. We try to cover questions like what is a firewall, what should you think about when installing or configuring a firewall, and much, much more.

We have to apologize a bit for the sound on our end in this show – we made a slight error in the configuration of our setup. For next show, we’ll be much improved, we promise.
