Dedicated Firewall Add-On
At Webservio, we are committed to ensuring the security of your hosted solution. With highly qualified security engineers maintaining our network, outstanding NetScreen firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems, and our customized SLA's, you can be assured your valuable data and applications are protected. No matter what level of security you require, a dedicated firewall is an important first step in securing your hosted environment.
Why a Dedicated Firewall?
A dedicated firewall provides protection exclusively to your server, eliminating the possibility of unauthorized access by another customer sharing the same firewall. Using a dedicated firewall allows you to add further further layers of security, such as a Virtual Private Network (VPN).
Although a software firewall has its place, it does not offer the same level of security as a dedicated firewall. Because setting up a software firewall can be tedious and complicated, a high level of user error is common and can create issues such as server shut-down, user lockout, and system vulnerability. These situations are avoidable with a Webservio dedicated firewall.
How It Works
A dedicated firewall acts as a protective barrier to keep malicious attacks away from your mission-critical data. The firewall uses rule sets to block unwanted traffic. Based on these rules, information that is sent to your server is inspected and then filtered. A Webservio Security Engineer assists you with setting rules that offer a high degree of security while still allowing public access to desired data.
Greater security can be achieved with the implementation of a Virtual Private Network (VPN). A VPN acts as a secure communications tunnel by encrypting all information sent between your server(s) and other designated domains. This is a useful tool for securely extending your network to mobile users, business partners, and corporate networks worldwide.
