Traditional Firewall

Traditional Firewall and Internet Set Up

  • On-site hardware firewall requires continual maintenance, software upgrades and testing
  • Primary Internet service flows through router into the firewall
  • A traditional firewall can become a speed bottleneck during peak usage sessions
  • If more speed is needed, more bandwidth must be ordered

Traditional Firewall

Cloud Based Firewall

Cloud Based Firewall Example:

  • 3MB Firewall is a lower cost than adding a 1.5MB T1
  • Additional speed comes standard with Network Firewall
  • Security Features manage spamming and viruses before traffic gets to your office location
  • Redundant Devices are in place for added reliability
