What is firewall

A firewall is a crucial security component that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic, acting as a barrier between a trusted internal network and untrusted external networks. By implementing predefined security rules, firewalls help protect devices and data from unauthorized access, cyberattacks, and malicious activities.

Why do you need one?

A firewall is essential for your business as it safeguards valuable data, protects sensitive information, and maintains network integrity. By controlling network traffic and preventing unauthorized access, firewalls help prevent cyberattacks, data breaches, and loss of productivity, ultimately preserving your business’s reputation and ensuring its long-term success.

Here are a few essential statistics to comprehend the severity of the cyber attacks and the need to have a solid defence system, like a Firewall, for your IT system:

Cybercrime has been up 600% since COVID-19

Over 560,000 new pieces of malware are discovered every day

Over 43% of cyber attacks are aimed at SMBs

The average total cost of a data breach was $4.35 million in 2022

The total cost of cyber attacks against SMBs was $2.8 billion in 2020

What are the benefits

By implementing a Firewall, your businesses can enjoy the following benefits contributing to overall success and cybersecurity posture.

Improved compliance and cybersecurity posture

Cost savings

Business continuity

Enhanced brand reputation and customer trust
