A firewall is a physical hardware component or a software component that allows an IT manager to protect the business from outside of the local network. Anything that is outside of the firewall online is a potential threat. A firewall makes it so those threats don’t get in or out.

On a daily basis, your data is going to go in and out from your network. To and from your business. Data loss is something that can ruin a company. If you aren’t doing something to protect your data as it is sent and received, you could lose it all. a firewall protects all that data by helping to monitor and control your network.

Firewalls are really a good idea for anyone with a computer network. Hardware firewalls are probably the direction you want to go if you own a business. But what if you don’t have anything anyone wants? Well, what about your customer’s data? If you deal with anyone else for your business, protecting the customer’s date is as, if not more, important than protecting your own data. You have a responsibility to your customers to protect their data. Plus it may actually be a requirement for your business too.
