System Security / Firewall
The modern IT environment is changing rapidly and without precedent. When it comes to network security, solutions from yesterday are no longer effective and businesses are frantically searching for new alternatives for safeguarding data and critical systems against threats. In some ways, IT is experiencing a technological standoff- a battle between security and stability making finding the perfect solution challenging….but not impossible.
The Value of IT Perimeter Security
The well-defined perimeter of the past has eroded. In its place, we have a dynamic, ever-changing barrier that is defined by mobile devices and wireless internet capabilities. The landscape is open and user-friendly, but highly susceptible to attack. Not only are systems and applications interdependent and connected, but the entire network is dynamic, making traditional perimeter tools obsolete.
In light of these changes, it’s even more important to guard business critical systems and data from any attack- inside or outside the enterprise. Let the experts at Marvin Huffaker help you develop a proactive strategy for protecting your perimeter against malicious activities. Reliable, effective, trustworthy and simply the best way to ensure your business continues to operate safely, securely and without interruption.
Nothing is as important as an efficient firewall for blocking unwanted traffic and eliminating data theft, infection or other threats. As your first line of defense, an effective firewall is paramount to your security plan and traditionally the most important IT perimeter security device.
Intrusion Detection and Prevention
When you need to stop actions that attempt to compromise confidentiality, integrity or availability of your data or systems, you need an effective intrusion detection and prevention solution. Quickly identifying unauthorized behavior and stopping it in its tracks is essential for keeping your network functioning at optimal levels and your business productive.
