Firewall: First Line of Defense

Protection against known & unknown threats


Applications

Where there is a “network”, there should be a “Firewall” to protect against known and unknown threats. Firewall filters every internet session and data packet passing through the network based on rules configured into the system. Put simply, Firewall is an essential investment for SMEs and enterprise. 

In guarding a network's main gate, department, work group or small business, Firewall will isolate external threats and disturbances. Large enterprise usually need multiple Firewalls to strengthen the defense capability of sprawling networks from cyber attacks.

Available in appliance or server form, today’s Firewall solutions have been developed as part of a co-operative system or module to offer multiple functionalities from anti-virus protection to intrusion detection, proxy etc, all working together to block diverse external threats.

Firewall is also critical to securing connected LANs with Virtual Private Networks (VPN). Its bandwidth management feature allows companies to regulate network use, avoiding congestion issues that result when office networks have been abused, while ensuring better staff productivity.

Challenge

No business can afford to take network security for granted in “Today’s Technological Age”. Sophisticated networks operated by governments, banks, retailers and other large institutions have all suffered catastrophic cyber attacks in the recent past.

Whether it is internal sabotage or advanced persistent threats originating externally, every organization needs to protect and secure their network and proprietary and customer data against security breaches, data theft and rogue applications that can wreck untold damage on their operations.

Given the extraordinary sophistication, scale, coordination and evolution of today’s cyber attacks, it is vital to implement protection protocols that can ensure continuous visibility into networks and leverage advanced forensic analysis to foresee, thwart and recover from security breaches
