Do you need a software and hardware firewall?

  J R Best 14:58 20 Feb 2006

I have recently bought a wireless / firewall/ modem combo router and i was wondering, since it has a hardware firewall, do i need to keep zone alarm, or could i get away without it?

their is no hard and fast rule do you need both ? NO

Some people choose to use a software firewall alongside a hardware one to keep tabs on what is going out of the machine for extra piece of mind.

But a properly configured hardware firewall on its own is sufficient
