Firewall and Network Security
Protecting your sensitive business information against theft, unauthorised access and manipulation and viruses is crucially important to your business.
What is a Firewall?
A firewall is a network security system, which can be either hardware or software that uses rules to control incoming and ongoing network traffic. It effectively acts as a barrier between your trusted network and an un-trusted network. A Firewall will control access to the resources of a network through a set of access policies, which means that only some traffic is allowed onto the network whilst other traffic is denied.
An access policy is simply a set of rules that determines who gets “in” and “out” of your network.
What are the benefits of a Firewall?
Having a Firewall in place provides increased security for your computers and devices, especially on networks that are connected to the internet and it can help reduce the chances of your network being attacked. It will detect intruders, block them from entering the your businesses network, notify the system administrator, record information about the source of the attempted break-in, and produce reports to help authorities track down the culprits. Since firewalls can be set to monitor both incoming and outgoing Internet traffic, they can also be used to prevent employees from accessing games, newsgroups, or adult sites on the World Wide Web.
