External attacks on internet connected machines is on the increase, and the best way to protect yourself against attack is to install a firewall. Because the internet is a public network, any connected computer can find and connect to any other connected computer. A firewall acts as a barrier between the public internet and your private computer or network and blocks potential threats. Depending on your connection and network setup, you may require a software firewall, or a hardware firewall.

A firewall protects you against a number of different online threats:

  • Hackers breaking into your computer.
  • Some viruses, called “worms,” that spread from computer to computer over the internet.
  • Some firewalls block outgoing traffic that might originate from a virus infection.

Sometimes a firewall can be hosted on your server that is connecting you to the internet, sometimes it is better to have the gateway/firewall totally seperate to your server on a dedicated machine.

Contact us to find out more about how to protect your network.
