I mentioned this a while ago – Symantec buying Sygate – and said that the makers of that fine example of bloat – Norton – would ruin a perfectly good firewall. Whoops ! Got that wrong ! No, Symantec are killing off the free firewall. On a business level they may be right. And on a user-level not using any of their products you too would be right (removing all the Norton crap from any machine I’m asked to look at is always step #1). So, the Sygate firewall is good. The Symantec one is not. The Sygate one is free. The Symantec one is too if you know where to look (but it’s still crap). Download your Sygate code now .. while you can.
