security – firewall

Ensuring every device on your network is adequately protected can be a complex and costly task. That’s why our firewall solution provides security with a single, modular, software platform designed to fit the evolving needs of any organisation. 

africaonline’s firewall solution will support you in filtering out unauthorized online traffic and ultimately, keep your network safe! 

What exactly is a firewall?

A firewall is a network security device that monitors and manages incoming and outgoing network traffic by permitting or blocking data based on a set of conditions. Some networks can be private, such as within a company, while others may be open to public access.

The firewall acts as a barrier between a trusted system or network and outside connections, such as the internet. A basic firewall setup can allow for traffic from all IP addresses except those flagged by a blacklist, for example.

Why do you need a firewall?

More and more companies and private individuals are being targeted by malicious attacks. Keeping your network and information safe and secure by preventing undesired access to or from your network is critical.

A firewall has a number of key use cases for businesses, including their ability to: 

  • Proactively stop malware, hacking attempts, phishing schemes and other threats before they reach a user’s device 
  • Allow administrators to gain insights into historical and real time trends
  • Analyse the network status at a glance on the dashboard
  • Get notifications of network anomalies or unusual behaviour with alert rules and have full event history
  • Meet the challenges of a remote workforce, branch offices and guest Wi-Fi by keeping users and data safe regardless of location or level of access
  • Ensure Quality of Service (QoS) and maximize uptime
  • Allow dedicated hardware appliances to be added into your network with zero touch deployment, or use your own hardware that meets the hardware requirements. 
  • Solutions can be deployed on a virtual machine, or in the cloud with Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Azure, if required 

We have created a summary of the advantages of our complete firewall solution.
