It may seem like an obvious question, but it is worth asking as things can get complicated with firewalls.
A firewall is simply this:
A firewall can filter traffic from the “outside world” to the network it is protecting. It can keep different parts of the same network separate. It can even filter traffic from specific applications. It can be cloud-based, hardware, or software. And if it is working correctly, your firewall will filter out malicious traffic while letting legitimate traffic.
Things now start to get complicated.
That was easy enough to understand. The difficulty comes in getting a firewall to work effectively. There are many different types of firewalls, such as:
And your business will probably need more than one.
Which firewalls will best suit your business will depend on the needs of your network. And even once you have decided that you need to make sure they are correctly deployed. Getting each one to work optimally and for them to work in tandem is a skilled task.
Why you need a managed firewall service
As you can imagine, deploying the various firewalls is a skilled job. And even if you have an IT department, do they have the skills or time to dedicate to such an essential part of your cybersecurity?
