Put simply, a firewall is a digital security system that monitors and checks all incoming and outgoing network traffic. Firewalls are an essential part of your business’ security system as without one, your network is open to threats.
Cyberattacks can be devastating for businesses, disrupting processes, reducing productivity and causing often irreparable reputational and brand damage.
It’s important to use available defenses to help protect your company network against cybercrime.
There are several different types of firewalls available, but many – including packet-filtering and stateful multi-layer inspection (SMLI) firewalls – are unable to distinguish between friendly and malicious web traffic, which is bad news for network security.
Today’s changing threat landscape means that next generation firewalls are the only option that can provide proper protection.
As the name suggests, next generation firewalls are much more sophisticated, offering multiple layers of security and combining the protection of a traditional firewall with advanced features such as intrusion detection to combat a broader range of cyberattacks.
Next generation firewalls also incorporate the work of antiviruses, firewalls, and other security applications into one solution – providing a low-cost option for companies looking to improve their basic security.
