I was suggested to use a nat firewall eradicate any risks of getting viruses in my PC. I am going for Ivacy VPN because it is one of the few providers out there who is providing this facility. I am just not sure how beneficial would it be. Can anybody confirm this?

NAT is now essential when it comes to conserving global address space. The IPv4 protocol, which determines how all devices on the internet communicate, has a limited number of available IP addresses. If every device that connects to the internet required a unique IP address, we would soon run out. Connecting many devices on a private network through a single NAT gateway only uses up one IPv4 address.
