March 19, 2012 Tech Tips

Firewalls are one of the most fundamental aspects in ensuring your company's availability and viability online.

Another tech tip when it comes to firewalls is; without them, upgrades that take your business offline for hours while new hardware and configurations are put into place can result in quite a bit of downtime.  If you have a firewall in place, this will not happen, but if you don't, you can almost be sure if/when you server is attacked by a malicious virus your business productivity will come to a grinding halt.

No out of the box firewall is a perfect solution, each and every one of them requires the proper configuration.  However, even after the configuration is done, the best firewall needs frequent software upgrades and patches, ongoing management, monitoring and testing by a professional.  By allowing us to manage your firewall, you'll can rest assured knowing your most important data is in great hands.
