Few business would choose to operate without a series of locks to protect their premises and inventory from intrusions and theft. Protecting your computer systems is equally important to prevent malicious users from disrupting your operations, or even worse, stealing your private data or intellectual property. One key device used for IT security is a firewall, and few companies can afford to operate without one.
Any network or standalone computer that is connected to the internet is potentially at risk for an attack. Small business have specifically been a target recently.
No single product, service or device will provide complete security, but a firewall is one of the cornerstones of network security. Think of it as an electronic gatekeeper. It inspects all the data passing in or out of the network , ensuring that the traffic is legitimate. When properly configured, a firewall allows users access to needed resources while keeping out any malicious users or programs.
