Network Perimeter Firewall

For a long time, firewalls were synonymous with network security; providing access control between two networks they are the basic building block of a security architecture. Modern firewalls pack powerful security tools into a custom secure appliance for deployment at the edge of the network for all types and sizes of customer network. All businesses with Internet connections absolutely require a firewall as minimum protection against cyber attacks.

Basic firewalls provide packet filtering – controlling access in and out of the network based on source and destination and protocol. More modern systems add VPN capabilities, deep packet inspection with anti-malware filtering and control of web browsing with URL filters.
