Every business needs firewall protection, why?


Your business and employees are more connected than ever before. Therefore, it’s essential that your business has firewall protection to keep your critical data and workforce safe from cyber criminals.

Firewalls can be hardware, software, or a combination of both. They’re your first layer of defence in cyber security.

This video shows how important firewall protection is to every business, and why so many businesses choose to outsource managed firewall services as opposed to managing them inhouse.

The importance of network security

With the increasing reliance on technology, it is becoming more and more vital to secure every aspect of online data and communication. While there is no network that is immune to attacks, a secure, stable, and efficient network security system is crucial in order to protect customer and employee data. Without firewall protection, your company is exposed to harmful attacks, your reputation could be impacted, and your business could suffer from periods of network downtime.

Firewalls have been a first line defence in network security for almost 30 years. They are fundamental to protecting network traffic including the flow of your critical business data. However, maintaining, upgrading, and managing firewalls requires technical expertise and 24/7 monitoring.

What is a Managed Firewall service?

Managed firewall services reduce the cost, risk, and resource heavy process of maintaining network security in house. It is essential to configure firewalls correctly and keep them patched, upgraded, and monitored, and this requires specialist resources and skills.
