Your business's frontline of defense.

A firewall is a security device that acts as a gatekeeper. Monitoring ingoing and outgoing network traffic and blocking unwanted traffic to help prevent malicious software from reaching your company’s network. Firewalls can vary drastically in terms of capability and the security features they offer, it's all about determining the right fit for your organization. 

Do I Need a Firewall?

Yes! If you use the internet, you should be using a firewall. Modern malware, including ransomware, leverage advanced techniques to transport attacks or and malicious software through networked devices, compromising company data and systems. There is more to protecting your network than owning a firewall, but it is certainly a must have and a key component to securing your data and devices. Firewalls can help when it comes to:

Compromised Data

Protect devices that would otherwise be exposed. Prevents attackers from taking control of a company device or network and stealing sensitive company data or client information.

Network Downtime

Outside actors may attempt to shut down your network and if successful it can be quite costly to bring every back online. Restoring data could also prove difficult depending on storage and backup methods.

Access Control

Without a firewall, there is no way of filtering who can connect to your network, essentially leaving it open to anyone. This makes it much easier to deploy malicious software across network devises.


Key to maintaining compliance, a firewall helps ensure client data is being proactively protected and is typically required in industries governed by regulatory compliance.
