Firewall technology for safe connectivity
Internet is rapidly becoming the single most important infrastructure component
of every enterprise. Seldom we encounter a business that doesn't have at
least one e-mail address and the few still remaining are quickly moving
to adopt it.
When the utilisation of e-mail and web browser has pervaded the whole
enterprise, there is the need for a permanent connection to Internet via
an high speed link of an ISP (Internet Service Provider) . But the
nature of the technology is such that over the worldwide Internet
network everything is accessible to everybody unless we do something to
prevent unauthorised access to our network.
That "something" is a firewall.
Nobody with some sense should connect to the Internet without a
firewall protection. There are too many source of treats coming from all
over the world that even few seconds without protection could be fatal
for the whole of the enterprise's network. Data could be damaged or lost
but, what could be worst, precious data could fall in the hands of
Are all firewalls equal ?
While many off-the-shelf firewall products are readily available for all
to use, the need to make them simple for the average user hampers their
effectiveness, while those with more functions are difficult to use
The bottom line is that the off-the-shelf firewall could provide a
false sense of security while leaving gaps-in-the-fence that any
two-cents-worth hacker will exploit as soon as it discovers it and
that's only a matter of seconds.
Why a managed firewall service ?
A hacker is an intelligent person who is trying to prove, whether to
the self or others, the level of his/her skills. Once a hole is covered
the hacker looks for a new challenge. which makes the race between the
hacker and the firewall a matter of intelligence. A piece of hardware
and software left on its own is bound, sooner or later, to fall prey of
the smart hacker and then it is too late.
With a managed service firewall there is a human being intelligence
behind to counteract the hacker's one.
