Is your organization in the market for new firewall software? In the “always on” and constantly connected environment of the modern world, the right computer firewall software is essential to the protection of a government and educational office’s proprietary data. Agencies that are using industry standard... operating systems and network servers are susceptible to many more exploits from malicious, third party hackers and information usurpers. Firewall software is consistently updated to keep up with these threats, but an agency must have the computer firewall system that matches its best interests in order to work most effectively.
We have a wide variety of firewall software from the top brands in the market, including Barracuda, Cisco, SolarWinds, and WatchGuard. These firewalls give an agency the ability to protect itself from outside hackers as well as the internal protections that come from hierarchical password and encryption technologies. The policy enforcement mechanisms that are inherent within the best systems can also help to increase productivity by blocking access to time wasting social media and entertainment sites.
The computer firewall that is right for an agency will be able to scale with that agency. Firewall software should be able to protect against viruses and Trojans, as well as phishing techniques and spyware. Any system that attempts to treat these very different threats as homogeneous will not work well within a government network system. Computer firewall software should also include email filtering to help stop phishing attempts and URL filtering to help avoid threats on the Internet from sites that only serve to download hidden viruses and Trojans to a computer.
