In brief: Depends

Don't know what your are particulary referring to.
If you are talking about municipal water, nothing needs to be done. If yoiu have well water, perhaps you need some form of treatment. If you are referring to raw water while camping, specific filters are as good as boiling for safety. One can always boil water but not filter out other agents. You can do both if unsure. Investigate furhter.

In brief: Depends

The best filtration systems can remove all pathogenic bacteria and of course these will be killed by boiling the water. So optimally they can be equivalent.
