Does Norton Security Deluxe have a firewall?

I just installed a new Windows 10 PC.  In the past I would install Zone Alarm firewall and Norton AV software.  I would like to simplify my system by installing only one Internet Security Package.   I read the product description for Norton Security Deluxe (NSD) and it does not specifically state it contains a firewall.  Interestingly it also doesn't mention that NSD does not support the Edge browser (that is until you get to fine print) which is concerning.

Yes NS does have a firewall.

Edge does not support extensions at this time but once Microsoft allow extensions there will be full compatibility.  You are still protected by other layers of Norton if you use Edge.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

NS Deluxe has an outstanding two-way firewall.

The main security program reviewer at PC Mag was unable to defeat it with any of the multitude of exploits he uses in his tests.

The Edge issue is Microsoft's doing. Other peeps here know more about that than I as I remain an 8.1 user.
