Firewall Management for Businessess

Are you protected from cyber threats?

Think of a firewall as a sentinel guard that protects your network security by filtering incoming and outgoing network traffic. (sentinel guard as in the ones at Arlington Cemetery, not the ones from X-Men)

A firewall for your business is the first layer of defense in cybersecurity. A firewall’s job is to prevent unauthorized connections and malicious software from entering your network. It monitors incoming and outgoing traffic, and if a computer or program outside your network tries to gain access, the firewall decides what to block or allow based upon defined cybersecurity rules.

The purpose is to reduce or eliminate the occurrence of unwanted network traffic and communications while allowing all legitimate communication to flow freely.

Protection from the Unknown

And while all of this is incredibly important, a firewall does more than prevent cyber criminals from accessing your company data. It also protects your company’s network and computers from being compromised and used for illicit activities without your knowledge.

Keeping your Firewall Updated

However, a firewall is only as good as its rules and recent updates. That’s where a managed services company like Logicspeak can help guide you. With new security threats constantly happening, your firewall is not a “set it and forget it” system. Falling behind on firewall maintenance can leave your business vulnerable to risks like open ports or unwanted VPN tunnels, which can make it easy for hackers to bypass security measures. And just like antivirus software, the firewall itself needs to be constantly updated to ensure you can detect the most recent threats. Lack of resources, understanding, time and training are the biggest factors in a business failing to follow proper firewall protocols. We want to guide you in avoiding this.

“If things are not working properly, then we are generally in crisis mode. I get concerned when folks cannot use the tools that I pay for, and I feel like I am just flushing money. Our business is deadline driven (permits, construction schedules) where there are major dollar implications if we do not meet our obligations. Logic Speak helps us stay on top of things and keep us up and running.”

Bill Peltier, William J. Peltier and Associates

“I needed an IT company that understood the challenges that we face as an engineering company. Logic Speak is that company! Now I don’t have to think about technology; I can devote time to our clients and projects knowing that they have everything under control!
