As more of our business moves online with the rise of cloud technologies and remote working, data security becomes more of a necessity. Gone are the days when you simply locked your office at night. Company confidential information is now accessible remotely and ensuring you’re properly protected is essential.
Controlling access to your data is handled via firewalls.
These are effectively ‘barriers’ which are placed at either end of your connection to prevent unwanted intruders from gaining access. Firewalls can be setup with different parameters and rules, such as only allowing specific IP addresses (those which belong to your organisation) or approved users to connect to your servers.
You can also protect your servers from inbound threats too. From emails containing malicious files, to spyware being downloaded onto your machines from the internet. Content control can be setup to act as a filter so that any suspicious files don’t get deployed onto your local machines.
