  Computer Security

  Desktop Firewall
  Although a firewall system is active at gateway level on MPI Network, the growing number of new external attacks may justify having an extra software-based firewall installed on each computer.
  A firewall will detect attempts of hidden installation of software/virus and will block hacking actions and other hidden threats.
Windows XP Users
  Windows XP users are recommended to install the Service Pack 2 and enable the built-in firewall.
  Previous Windows Versions Users
  Users of previous Windows versions (98/2k) may install a software-based firewall, such as ZoneAlarm.
