iMac with Big Sur 11.2, new Mac and the firewall in system preferences is turned on in stealth mode.  I installed Kaspersky Personal Cloud on my iMac.  I am not sure if Kaspersky includes a firewall in their software for Macs, so my question is should i leave my firewall turned on in system preferences or does Kaspersky Cloud include a firewall to protect my Mac?
