About Firewall Security

It's the group of actions and practices

" A firewall is a network security device or software that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. The primary purpose of a firewall is to establish a barrier between a secure internal network and untrusted external networks, such as the internet.There are two main types of firewalls: hardware firewalls and software firewalls."

  • Hardware firewall: These are physical devices that are typically placed at the boundary between an internal network
  • Software Firewalls:These are software applications that run on general-purpose operating systems.

Our Firewall features

Add these affordable features to your server when you need them in the cloud panel.

High availability

High availability is important for enterprises and large organizations that cannot afford unprotected networks if the firewall system goes down.

Application proxy

It modifies and masks the source information in the outgoing data by acting as an intermediary between the web traffic and the company’s network.

Logging and reporting

Logging and reporting capabilities give IT administrators a bird’s eye view of the network in terms of the incoming and outgoing flow of data.

VPN support

VPNs use tunneling protocols to create a secure connection between remote devices and the company’s private network.

Network segmentation

Network segmentation divides a single enterprise network into a smaller logical network for the sake of maintenance and policy division.

Easy maintenance

Policies and rules are the heart of a firewall engine. A good firewall solution provides easy creation, maintenance, and migration of these policies.

Deep packet inspection

Organizations with a vast number of remote employees must consider VPNs or a cloud-based firewall.


The shortlisted firewall security software must be compatible with other security solutions that are in place.

End-to-end network visibility

Get visibility of the underlying security policies implemented on firewalls and other security devices across the network. Understand your network’s traffic flows.

Find unused firewall rules

Enabling unused rules to be included in a policy goes against best practices and may pose a risk to the organization.

Associate policy rules with business applications

Firewall rules support applications or processes that require network connectivity to and from specific servers, users, and networks.

Manage multi-vendor devices

Each firewall vendor often has its own management console, but your network is made up of multiple devices from an assortment of vendors.

Ensure continuous compliance

Simplify and reduce audit preparation efforts and costs with out-of-the-box audit reports for major regulations including PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, NERC, and GDPR.

Deep Packet Inspection (DPI)

DPI involves inspecting the actual data content of packets as they traverse the network.

Frequently Asked Questions

A firewall is a network security system that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. It acts as a barrier between a trusted internal network and untrusted external networks, such as the internet.

Firewalls are essential for protecting your computer or network from unauthorized access, cyber attacks, and other security threats. They help prevent malicious entities from gaining access to your sensitive data and systems.

Firewalls work by inspecting and controlling the traffic that passes through them based on predefined rules. They can operate at the network layer (packet filtering), the transport layer (stateful inspection), or the application layer (proxy filtering).

There are hardware firewalls and software firewalls. Hardware firewalls are standalone devices, while software firewalls are programs that run on a computer or network device. Firewalls can also be categorized as stateful or stateless, and as packet-filtering, proxy, or next-generation firewalls.

Inbound traffic refers to data coming from external networks and entering your network, while outbound traffic is data leaving your network and heading towards external networks. Firewalls can be configured to control both inbound and outbound traffic.

While firewalls are a crucial component of a comprehensive security strategy, they cannot provide absolute protection. They are just one layer of defense. Combining firewalls with other security measures such as antivirus software, intrusion detection systems, and regular security updates enhances overall protection.

Firewall rules should be regularly reviewed and updated to reflect changes in your network configuration and to address emerging security threats. Regular maintenance ensures that your firewall remains effective in protecting your network.
