A firewall is a specialized system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. The firewall device stands between your office network and the internet, filtering & monitoring the flow of information.
Firewalls are primarily used to prevent unauthorized access of private networks connected to the internet. The firewall examines all data entering or leaving the private network, & blocks those messages that do not meet the specified security criteria.
How does it work?
A firewall device stands between your office network and the internet, filtering and monitoring the flow of information. This places the device in a powerful yet vulnerable position, as it is subject to both human and computer generated attacks.
The operating system and associated software require regular security updates and software maintenance to remain secure and to continue to provide the highest level of protection.
To ensure everything is working as best as it can and to ensure your system is up-to-date, our engineers will regularly check your firewall settings and logs, and install updates where necessary.
