firewalls

Firewalls are a very important part to keeping you and your computers safe on the internet.

If you have been using the Internet for any length of time, and especially if you work at a larger company and browse the Web while you are at work, you have probably heard the term firewall used. For example, you often hear people in companies say things like, "I can't use that site because they won't let it through the firewall."

 

Firewalls open and close what are called 'Ports'. These ports are what allows data to transfer between your computer and other peoples.

For certain tasks, certain ports need to be configured to open and close correctly, bad configuration or badly chosen products can lead to this being exploited.

 

We at TeknoIT Solutions can provide you with either an off the shelf unit programmed correctly to protect your systems or a bespoke Linux based system that can be tailored to your exact requirements.

 

You need a firewall to protect your home network and family from offensive Web sites and potential hackers.

 

Basically, a firewall is a barrier to keep destructive forces away from your property. In fact, that's why its called a firewall. Its job is similar to a physical firewall that keeps a fire from spreading from one area to the next.
