What IS Security?
When we talk about security, the first thing that comes into our mind is tall walls, barbed wires, security personnel, guard dogs, checkpoints at the entry and anything else that can prevent unauthorized people from entering, and in case anyone does manage to enter inside, the apparatus, equipment or personnel that can drive out or capture the intruders. However, the problem is that even in today’s world, a lot of people only think of physical assets or equipment when it comes to securing them.
The fact of today’s world is that we live in an information era. Most of our assets and information is stored on networks and system which can be pretty easily penetrated by nefarious and dubious forces to utilize it for their own advantage. This is especially true for corporations and enterprises which compete with several other businesses for their sustenance and growth as well as become the target for other people with mischievous mindsets.
Hence, it becomes important to safeguard these assets as well since the entire existence of the company depends upon it. This is where Firewall Solutions, Firewall Network Security Services and Firewall Network Security System Dubai from major players like run by VRS Tech come into play.
What Do Firewall Solutions For Small Businesses Do?
Firewalls are essentially wall-like barriers which have checkpoints to prevent websites from origins other than the sanctioned network to be opened by devices which are connected to the network. This means that if you are using your company laptop and you have a total firewall put up, you can only open your company website and internal usage tools and processes and not other websites. However, this is not a practical way to work, and hence certain websites which can be trusted are allowed to be opened and websites which are suspicious are not allowed to open.
How Are Suspicious Websites Determined?
There are several ways to determine suspicious websites. These include known databases which list out suspicious websites directly, any website which tries to forcibly download stuff onto your computer without asking for permission, any website that puts Trojans or malware onto your computer, etc. Several firewall companies also use artificial intelligence and predictive analysis to determine which websites are suspicious.
How Does This Benefit Us?
When malicious websites are blocked, the number of attacks which are possible are automatically reduced. This is like locking the doors and frisking everyone who comes inside through the doors which are open. The probability that mischief can be carried out comes down drastically due to these actions and makes sure the data in your organization is safe from such perpetrators.
