A firewall is a software or hardware-based network security system that controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic based on an applied rule set. A firewall establishes a barrier between a trusted, secure internal network and another network (e.g. the internet) that is not assumed to be secure and trusted.
As more and more of our data moves to Cloud services our Internet connections (even though a lot faster) are being put under more strain. This increases the importance of firewalls, to help ensure that the computers on your network are protected from viruses and other forms of attack, which will in turn maintain the security of your business and keep your data safe.
For a modern business, this technology is an essential investment. Zenzero recommend the SonicWALL range as they are proven to be one of the most secure Unified Threat Management (UTM) firewalls for small businesses. Unlike consumer-grade products, SonicWALL range offers the most effective anti-malware, intrusion prevention, content/URL filtering and application control capabilities.
Keeping your organisation protected has never been harder as we are now faced with encrypted threats. Another important security technology has been turned against us as around 40% of corporate network traffic is now encrypted using SSL, and we soon expect this to reach 100%. For example all Google searches are now returned using HTTPs. This change means that most firewalls are blind to almost half of the traffic entering your network. Therefore the ability to provide SSL Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) as well as the more standard features such as intrusion prevention and application filtering has become imperative.
Zenzero listen to your needs to understand which device best fits the requirements of the business and which settings need to be applied in order to provide the balance of security and productivity.
The team at Zenzero will help you to invest in a capable Intrusion Prevention solution by selecting the correct next-generation firewall and intrusion prevention system with SSL inspection and application control to detect and prevent today’s advance evasive tactics or compromised web applications from sneaking malware into your network allowing you to;
