A Managed Firewall: What is It and Does Your Business Need It?
Essentially, a firewall is designed to keep intruders out. Firewalls filter network data at the entry level. They check the sender’s address, its intended application, and, of course, its content. Incoming data that meets the firewall’s security criteria gains entry or may exit; data that does not is stopped at the firewall checkpoint. In short, firewalls provide a safe internet connection and these safeguards are installed on routers that serve just about every piece of end user equipment. Equate a firewall as a fortification like a medieval castle with high, thick, seemingly impenetrable walls. Unless these forts are protected and monitored, however, the threat of invasion is omnipresent. So that’s what Managed Firewall services do: they are third party vendors who service the firewall to prevent unauthorized network access while allowing authorized users access to verified data.
At Converged Technology Group, our experts understand the value of Managed Firewall services to every business. It is essential to every business’ survival that their network traffic and flow of sensitive information is fully protected.
