A firewall allows businesses to control access to the Internet and protect the business from
access by malicious entities, including hackers. Authorized users can gain access to the areas of the network for which they are approved, and unauthorized parties are actively blocked via intrusion detection and prevention measures. Firewalls also provide site-to-site or site-to-mobile user private
connections using Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology
VelocIT Advantage provides constant monitoring of all critical firewall services and maintenance of rules controlling access in either direction. As an added benefit, manufacturer support agreements
are automatically monitored to ensure that you are not left unprotected. Without such support agreements in force, you cease receiving vital updates to the firewall, which in turn, leaves your network and your business at risk.
As the principal gateway to the Internet, the firewall is under constant attack. Without proper management, the security software that makes the firewall effective does not automatically keep up with defense mechanisms for current threats. Additionally, improperly configured and managed firewalls provide no protection against intruders or data leakage.
Our Security and protection solutions reduce the workload of your IT department while ensuring your data is secure.
