The beauty of the NVIDIA ActiveArmor is that it allows
hardware-based firewall due to the integration of the Secure Networking Engine
into the MCP core. As a result, the NVIDIA firewall function does not take up
precious CPU resources like what a typical software firewall does. NVIDIA
Firewall incorporates both firewall and antihacking technologies such as
anti-IP-spoofing, antisniffing, anti-ARP cachepoisoning and anti-DHCP server.
It also offers the Intelligent Application Manager (IAM), advanced management
functionality, remote access, configuration and
monitoring through a user-friendly wizard.
