Keeping your data safe

The Importance of Using a Firewall for Threat Protection

Firewalls: What They Are, What They Can Do for You

Connecting to the Internet is safer when you install and use a firewall. One of the most important things you can do if you want to stay safe online or protect sensitive data such as patient information is to protect where your computer connects to the Internet. Both incoming and outgoing Internet traffic can be exploited by cyber criminals to install malicious code, destroy files, cause malfunctions or even cause an online virus to proliferate. A correctly installed and configured firewall puts up a barrier between your private computer or network and a variety of these Internet threats. A firewall is a piece of software or hardware that secures your computer by limiting who can send you information; some firewalls even help to prevent hackers from using your computer to launch attacks on other computers. While firewall protection is essential, it is also important to understand what a firewall can and cannot do so you can take the steps you need to be cyber secure.

As part of an overall strategy for cyber security, our UTM (Unified Threat Management)firewalls play an important role in establishing the first line of defense against cyber threats. Combined with anti-spyware, anti-virus, anti-spam software,content filtering, strong passwords and safe online practices, a firewall adds a layer of protection that increases your chance of staying safe online.
