Anti-Virus and Firewalls

Preventing unauthorized access to your IT systems

To keep your company’s data and IT systems fully secure, we provide a range of firewall options – both hardware and software – to suit your unique company processes and IT infrastructure.

We provide a comprehensive range of Endpoint and Network Security solutions with firewalls providing the top level of protection. A firewall serves as a protective barrier between your company’s IT systems and all the network security issues the internet can send your way – from spam and virus to bots, spyware and ransomware.

Without firewall protection, hackers can steal your bandwidth and computing power, access your sensitive information and even steal your corporate identity.

Anti-Virus and Firewalls

Software firewalls

Microsoft Windows comes with its own built-in firewall which is great – but software firewalls are more susceptible to viruses and don’t offer the same level of security as hardware firewalls.

Hardware firewalls

Often combined with ADSL routers, hardware firewalls  use a packet filter to prevent user data from passing through unless they meet a certain set of security criteria – such as IP addresses.

Premium firewalls

New premium firewalls are referred to as Next Generation Firewall (NGF) devices, as they are able to combine network security functions previously performed by multiple systems.

Next Generation Firewall technology was developed to respond to the increase in attacks

To deliver the best technology available, we use state-of-the-art, fully integrated firewalls from WatchGuard. The firewalls are physically separate from your router and provide the following key features:

  • Ability to control the use of web applications
  • Intrusion prevention to fight off hackers
  • Web blocker to block suspicious websites according to set criteria
