What Type of Firewall Should Your Company Have in Place?
Whether you are a healthcare or a non-profit organization, securing your IT network should be at the top of your priority list. One of the easiest ways to do this is through firewalls. But where do you start?
Implementing a good firewall is crucial to keeping your customers’ and your own information private and secure. Firewalls prevent identity theft, hackers, viruses, transmitting sensitive data outside of the network and more by blocking access to your network from outsiders. But all firewalls are not built the same.
Do you know what websites your employees are visiting? Are you having issues with viruses and malware? Installing an enterprise-class firewall can help you solve these issues. Network Enterprise Firewalls are defined as standalone, purpose-built firewall appliances with IPSec VPN capabilities, capable of delivering extensive firewall and management capabilities for securing the perimeter access securely.
SaalexIT has certified WatchGuard professionals developing and delivering enterprise-class firewalls at small business prices. WatchGuard Technologies, used by Ronald McDonald House, Museum of Flight, the Rtiz London and more, is a leading global provider of multi-function security appliances, including powerful enterprise-strength firewalls engineered specifically to protect small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) everywhere. So what are the benefits of installing an enterprise-class firewall, using a certified WatchGuard managed service provider?
- Defense-in-Depth Protection – Typically, a firewall is not aware of the users’ identities and therefore, cannot apply security policies based on identity. With WatchGuard XTM, you get identity-based firewalling plus WatchGuard’s unique, wide-ranging proxy technology. With wide-ranging proxy protection providing robust security on HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, SMTP, POP3, DNS, TCP/UDP, you can configure access rules and security policies based on global settings, user names, or user groups.
- Application Control – The WatchGuard XTM provides next-generation firewall functionality via Application Control. This allows businesses to utilize web 2.0 apps, while keeping employees focused on work rather than playing games and browsing their social media platforms;
- Malware and Hacker Prevention – With the latest in intrusion prevention, spam-blocking and gateway anti-virus, the WatchGuard XTM keeps malware, spyware, viruses, worms and hackers out of small business networks;
- Cloud-Based Protection – The WatchGuard XTM also leverages WatchGuard’s Reputation Enabled Defense service, which is a cloud-based IP and URL reputation solution that stops threats in the cloud before they ever hit the network edge, which means network throughput is always fast.
