A vital element of network security for any company is to have a business or enterprise class firewall protecting their network. The primary firewall role, of course, is to protect computer assets and data from attack by hackers. What many people don’t realize is that hacking is going on twenty-four-seven! , Many breaches could be prevented, if only you were aware that a person or persons unknown has spend the last two weeks attempting to break in. Just like in a heist movie, any lock can be picked given enough time, so your firewall needs to be constantly monitoring for intruders.
You need a firewall that is either setup with an intrusion prevention system (IPS) that sends out notifications when it detects significant activity on the the firewall, or the firewall is managed and monitored 24x7x365 by a security operations center, which is known as a managed firewall or security as a service (SaaS). Building a wall alone isn’t enough, hackers can be working to disassemble it brick by brick while you’re asleep!
