Routers VS Firewalls Which one are you missing?

The most critical aspect for business security is the security of the network used to access the internet.
Most businesses have some type of router, like a Linksys, which blocks some incoming files, but allows all files out. What occurs commonly is that a hacker or malware sneaks in through one of the opened ports, and then takes control over the entire network. Old routers cannot maintain and protect large amounts of bandwidth.
The best way to protect your network is to get a firewall which collaborates with your router. The firewalls restrict the opening and closing of all ports on the entire network. A professional is required to set up this software. Ports that have to constantly be open will still have that capability, but the firewalls will filter out malware or viruses. This better ensures your security.
We make sure that your firewalls log all activity on the network and ensure that the latest firmware filters are up to date.
Expensive firewalls such as Barracuda NG Firewall might seem a bit excessive, but the security they provide massively reduces the risk of any infection and doesn't compare to the amount of money you can lose during the downtime of your network compared to the investment in an excellent firewall.
