What is a Firewall?
A firewall is a part of a computer system or network that is designed to block unauthorized access while permitting authorized communications. It is a device or set of devices which is configured to permit or deny computer applications based upon a set of rules and other criteria.
Firewall solutions can be implemented via either hardware or software, or a combination of both. Firewalls are frequently used to prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks connected to the Internet, especially intranets. All messages entering or leaving the intranet pass through the firewall, which examines each message and blocks those that do not meet the specified security criteria.
Let Outsource Solutions Group determine the right firewall configurations for your small business environment.

Your Small Business Needs More Than An Off The Shelf Retail Firewall. That $100 Firewall Might Not Be The Good Deal You Think It Is.
While it is the concern of every business to be as cost-effective as possible, it is not a good idea to skimp on your investment in a proper and solid security system for your business data and information. For instance, cost-cutting on your firewall might seem like a good idea at the start, but in the long term, it’s a risk you cannot afford to take.
One of the most underestimated pieces of hardware in your network may be your firewall. Many businesses are content using the most basic and cheapest option available on the market, without realizing that their security chain is only as strong as its weakest link. And if you make do with a cheap firewall, odds are you’ll get what you pay for – not much.
While basic firewalls might work fine for homes or individual users, it is a much different scenario when it comes to business operations where basic just doesn’t cut it. Plus, there’s more at stake with business data, so why take the risk with cheap firewalls that lack the proper security features?
With viruses, malware, and the cyber thieves behind them continuing to grow and evolve, it is important that you understand what it takes to protect your system and your data – and invest in the best solution. Remember that it can take only one incident, one infiltration, to bring your whole business down.
We realize that every system is different and every business has its own specific needs, so if you want to know more about getting the right firewall for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us (630) 701-3393
