      Authenticates passwords

    • D.

      Help connect to the Internet.

    Correct Answer
    A. They work as filters, Protects from malicious attacks and controls outgoing web traffic.
    Explanation
    The main feature of a Firewall is that it works as a filter, protecting from malicious attacks and controlling outgoing web traffic. Firewalls act as a barrier between a trusted internal network and an untrusted external network, monitoring and filtering incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. This helps to prevent unauthorized access, block malicious activities, and ensure the security of the network. Firewalls do not encrypt sensitive data, authenticate passwords, or help connect to the internet.

    Correct Answer
    B. Stores and access data & programs
    Explanation
    Cloud computing refers to the storage and access of data and programs over the internet instead of a local computer or server. It allows users to store and retrieve data and programs from anywhere, at any time, using any device with an internet connection. The cloud also enables multiple users to access and update information simultaneously, making it a convenient and efficient solution for businesses and individuals. Additionally, cloud services handle the servers, infrastructure, and maintenance, relieving users of the need to manage their own hardware and software resources.

    Explanation
    A modem is a device that provides access to the Internet. It is used to connect a computer or network to an Internet service provider (ISP) through a telephone line or cable. The modem converts the digital signals from the computer into analog signals that can be transmitted over the phone line, and vice versa. This allows the computer to send and receive data over the Internet. Modems do not protect the computer from viruses, transfer data to the computer, or connect the server to the computer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A router is a networking device that is used to connect multiple devices to a single internet connection. It acts as a central hub and divides the network traffic from the modem to different computers or devices connected to it. This allows multiple devices to access the internet simultaneously and ensures efficient data transmission between the modem and the connected devices. Therefore, the statement "A router is used to divide networks from the Modem across to different computers" is true.
