One of the key features to look for in a firewall is its ability to block zero-day malware. This type of threat has become such a focus because modern anti-virus and anti-malware solutions are typically unable to stop them. The primary feature of a zero-day threat is that it’s unknown, meaning anti-virus and anti-malware solutions don’t yet have a signature for it and therefore can’t stop it.
