What is a firewall?

Before the Internet took over the world, "firewalls" were more commonly associated with physical walls that were implemented during building construction to protect certain rooms from fire. While those firewalls still exist, most people associate firewalls with online security these days which created a new definition. Today, firewalls are a key facet of a computer network implemented to prevent unauthorized system access while still facilitating outward communications. Basically, firewalls keep the bad stuff from getting in while still letting you handle online work as usual.
