Webroot produces video on firewalls

Monday Webroot tweeted that it had produced a 4 minute YouTube video “Webroot Threat Reply: Firewalls” (actually the word "Threat" is spelled "Thre@t"), with Armando Orozco, directed by Andrew Brandt.

The video makes the point that additional vendor firewalls (above the level provided by Windows Vista and 7) prevent outside Internet contacts from using authorized programs on your computer.  It’s normal to want your browser to have access to most executable applications, but not for other programs to.

The video also shows Webroot’s headquarters on the plains near Denver.  It also makes the physical analogy, through animation, to Medieval moats and castle walls.
