Question:  Is my entire network protected by the TELUS security services Firewall?

Answer:  If all computers are connected to the same router as the internet (the most common home setup), then only the computer on which the firewall is installed will be protected. 

If all incoming network traffic goes through the protected computer before being routed to the network, then the whole network is protected from the outside. However, this will not protect your network from the inside, in the event that another computer on the network becomes compromised in some other way.
