for the most part a properly configured deny/deny with exceptions firewall

What kind of firewall are you talking about though? A software firewall installed on the host? Or something else?

A properly configured deny/deny dedicated physical firewall. Not the crappy garbage that comes with the cheapest router your ISP could source to give you, but professional grade equipment.

The reason I asked is because I hear other people talking about firewalls as a "defense" against Intel ME, only to learn that they're talking about some software firewall (which the ME chip obviously bypasses).

I use OpenWrt on a TP-Link in Ethernet-only mode. It's more than good enough for my needs. "Professional grade" sounds like shock and awe to me.
