Network Security: What is a firewall, and how will a firewall protect my business?

Firewalls and Network Security

For as long as businesses have used the internet, malicious actors have tried to breach those businesses via the internet. Over time, the methods used by these hackers have gotten more and more sophisticated. For that reason, the tools utilized by companies to combat these bad actors have also gotten more sophisticated. One of the most effective network security measures is a firewall. A firewall network security solution can be managed by Computer Business Consultants. Allowing us to do that work for you is a simple and cost-effective method to prevent a vast majority of network security threats to your Central Florida business.

A firewall is a security device working like a border around your internal network. A firewall inspects all incoming and outgoing traffic through your internal network, filtering out malware and blocking those bad actors trying to access your internal network without permission.

A firewall does not just keep your network secure from the outside, but can also keep your employees secure and increase your workplace productivity and by restricting access to content against your company guidelines.

Whether a small business or a large corporation, network security 101 requires a firewall. Computer Business Consultants specializes in network security in Orlando and all across Florida if you need firewall support or management.

Should my corporation or small business have a firewall?

While they might be acceptable for use at home, a built-in firewall such as Windows Defender cannot keep your business safe. With all your client’s data and information on your business’s finances, every business is a target.

Merely having cybersecurity technology such as a firewall is not enough to keep your business secure. These firewalls need a managed service provider to update and maintain the firewall to keep your network secure at all times. Any business that procures a firewall from Computer Business Consultants receives a Next-Generation Firewall.

Managing a Next-Generation Firewall is no simple task.
