Firewall Security – What is it and why do I need one?
A Firewall device is crucial to protect your business network from the thousands of outside threats that lurk on the internet.
A firewall is a network security system, either hardware or software-based, that uses rules to control incoming and outgoing network traffic.
A firewall acts as a barrier between a trusted network (your business network) and and an untrusted network (such as the internet). A firewall controls access to the resources of a network through various rules and security definitions. This means that the only traffic allowed onto the network is defined in the firewall security policies; all other traffic is denied.
