Security - Firewall

What is a backup?

Backup is the creation of backup copies that ensure that a business will continue to operate normally in the event of a failure or an external factor causing data loss. The backup is performed either locally or in the Cloud and provides the ability to immediately restore data to any system.

How is your customer data at risk?

Data is not only lost if someone accidentally deletes it, but also from hardware failures (mainly hard drives), malicious attacks or natural disasters. The backup done locally on a hard drive or server does not ensure the protection of the copies in all cases, making the Cloud the ideal choice.

Which customers need Cloud Backup?

Backup is needed by all businesses that manage important data (financial data, personal data, performance data and databases with information such as documentation, manuals, etc.). Data loss has a high cost that is not only calculated in money but also in trust as it can irreparably damage the reputation of a business

Firewall is a security device — computer hardware or software — that acts as a “firewall” that can help protect your network by filtering traffic and preventing outsiders from gaining unauthorized access to your computer’s private data.

A Firewall not only blocks unwanted traffic, but can also help prevent malware from infecting your computer. Firewalls can provide different levels of protection. The key is to determine how much protection you need.

The following topics can help you learn what firewalls do and determine the level of protection that will help keep your computer and the data on it safe and secure.

What does a Firewall do?

A Firewall acts as a “guardian”. It monitors attempts to gain access to your operating system and blocks unwanted traffic or unrecognized sources.

How does it do this? A Firewall acts as a barrier or filter between your computer and another network such as the Internet. You could think of a Firewall as a traffic controller. It helps protect your network and information by managing your network traffic.

This includes blocking unsolicited incoming network traffic and validating access by evaluating network traffic for anything malicious, such as hackers and malware.

Your operating system and security software usually come with a pre-installed firewall. It’s a good idea to make sure these features are enabled. Also, check your security settings to make sure they are configured to run updates automatically.

How does a Firewall work?

First, a firewall system analyzes network traffic based on rules. A firewall allows only those incoming connections that it is configured to accept to pass through. It does this by allowing or blocking specific data packets – units of communication sent over digital networks – based on predefined security rules.

A Firewall acts like a traffic warden at the entry point or port of your computer. Only trusted sources or IP addresses are allowed in. IP addresses are important because they identify a computer or source, just like your postal address identifies where you live.
