Why do I need a firewall?

Data is becoming an ever-greater prize. Make sure that your security provision defends against the threats of the future – not the past. Our security partner WatchGuard’s next generation proxy technology is the next logical step in network security. Current DPI (deep packet inspection) can be easily overwhelmed by heavy traffic, and inspects only packet-level content. We work alongside WatchGuard, using its cutting-edge Fireware technology to decrypt and reassemble incoming traffic to scan packet data at the application level. Keep your systems more secure than ever by blocking threats more effectively.
