A firewall is the the gatekeeper for the traffic flowing in and out of your network. Firewalls can be implemented in both hardware and software (or both), to protect your system from intrusions and to block any data that doesn’t meet your security requirements. They can also be used for content filtering, network and usage monitoring and spam filtering. Some firewalls are very specialized, dealing with only one function such as spam filtering. Others , commonly know as UTM (Unified threat management) devices, take on many of these functions, giving you one place to manage many of the threats that face your network.
Firewalls are highly effective at preventing attacks and keeping out hackers. But they need to be set up correctly and require constant updates to keep your system protected from the latest threats, without choking your ability to communicate smoothly with the rest of the world. Our firewall solutions meet the highest industry standards for security and are updated regularly and monitored carefully by our team to ensure that updates will not compromise the efficiency of your network and that all threats are effectively blocked at all times.
A network switch is the hardware device that centralizes communications between the different devices that are connected to your network. There are many different types of network switches to choose from, and the right switch for your network depends on the specific needs of your company. Some switches employ a set-it-and-forget-it approach, with minimal flexibility. Others offer a lot of control, but require more management. Switches also vary in size, how many devices they can link and the speed at which they communicate. Some switches can even provide power to the devices that connect to them.
Our team will help you determine which network switches you need so that your team can reach what they need to, when they need to.
