When it comes to your technology, chances are security is one of your utmost concerns, and rightfully so. Research has painted a pretty bleak picture regarding the outcomes of cyberattacks on small business, but you shouldn’t live in fear.

Without question, your business needs to be focused on security, and it is our duty and pride to keep you safe. Let’s make sure of it.

Much like its name implies, a firewall effectively places a fortified barrier between your network and the outside world. The device monitors all the data and requests that are being passed across a network, and a variety of methods are used to analyze the content. It must be manually and carefully configured to work properly, and thus a trusted and experienced team is indispensable. We have decades of experience in the field along with certified expertise with our preferred platform. This is one of those things you really don’t want to get wrong, and we are here to make it simple and easy for you.

Implementing a firewall is not a plug and play process. There are different types that have varying modes of operation and complexity. Your firewall must be uniquely configured for your network, primarily by establishing rules that dictate how traffic is handled in and out. Specific provisions are set up to allow or deny traffic based several factors such as ports, packet, and session data.

In addition to providing inbound and outbound protection on several levels, they also facilitate useful networking features like VPNs. Security is a complex and critical concern for your business, and you should be doing everything that is practical to bolster your safety. A well-managed firewall is a huge step in the right direction.

If you are considering a firewall, have general security concerns, or require support, we can help.
