Determining the type of firewall best suited to your organization requires a strong understanding of your business requirements and information security principles to provide the best network security and hacker protection.
For example, firewall types include application proxying, deep packet inspection, layer 2 bridging, and packet filtering.
Additionally, modern effective firewalls have also evolved to include further security features such as:
- Application intelligence;
- Authentication systems;
- Intrusion detection and prevention;
- Traffic shaping and management, and
- VPN termination.
The increasing demand for faster inter-office communications and need to share data across sites, together with the facility for offsite data backup, security cameras and Voice over IP (VoIP), has provided even more potential security vulnerabilities.
