Informatica filter transformation default value is 1 i.e. True.  If you place a break point on filter transformation and run the mapping in a debugger mode, you will find these values 1 or 0 for each row passing through filter. If you change 0 to 1, the particular row will be passed to next stage.

The rows which do not meet the condition are rejected. In case u want to use keep those rows which do not meet he condition, then use a Router Transformation specifying 2 conditions(true as well as false) and route them to 2 different targets.
