This 25th Anniversary of the Firewall Infographic put out by Mcafee – now part of Intel Security – creatively depicts the ‘lifetime’ of firewalls. It shows an interesting look at the evolution of the firewall technology. With each new development, Mcafee firewall thought that they had it all covered. But, overtime those new great technologies were outdone and had to be updated.
