The importance of network security

While most businesses understand the importance of cybersecurity, research shows that many don’t have effective controls and processes in place to defend itself from attacks and breaches. This leaves your network and business data vulnerable in an evolving volatile threat landscape. Without firewalls, 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.
