Are your servers safe from malicious traffic? Firewalls can help prevent unsafe traffic from ever reaching your server and are crucial for protecting your hosting environment. In this edition of “Firewalls in 60 Seconds,” J. Mays explains how this technology will keep your servers safe.
A firewall is a security device; it filters traffic, has a customizable set of rules, and protects your data.
Potentially malicious behavior, coming in like wrecking ball toward your servers, is stopped by your firewall.
At Liquid Web, we deploy two types of firewalls, both of which have that same essential function: preventing evil-doers access.
With dedicated servers, we use a physical Cisco firewall. That means you can consolidate security for your entire hosting environment into a managed device
For Storm Cloud Servers, we use a cloud-enabled firewall. Each of these firewalls is individually manageable.
In either case, firewalls are necessary for securing your hosting environment against unauthorized third-party access.

Prevent Unauthorized Access
and Stop (Those) Wrecking Balls of Malicious Traffic
