Firewall/VPN Solutions
Firewalls and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are indispensable tools for keeping your network safe from malicious attacks and unauthorized access. In general, Firewalls provide access control and user authentication and VPNs offer secure, encrypted two-way communication over untrusted media such as the Internet. Firewall/VPN solutions can be dedicated or integrated products and can be in the form of hardware appliances or software utilities. You can select relatively expensive products that offer high speed and extensive functionality or less expensive products with slower performance and minimal functionality. You can also mix and match products to fit your security strategy and IT budget.

Firewalls and VPNs make it possible to build a secure network that can be safely accessed by local users as well as by telecommuters and mobile employees, vendors, customers, partners, and the public. Today's Firewall/VPN technology allows you to assign and manage different access rights to various classes of users and to expand your network and enhance your security as your business grows and as network attacks become increasingly sophisticated.

Firewall Technology
Firewall and VPN ConsultingFirewalls control who and what has access to your network. Firewalls with stateful inspection can keep track of source and destination IP addresses and port numbers, making it possible to analyze not just isolated data packets but entire communications sessions in order to protect the network from attack and intrusion. High-end Firewalls offer defense against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks as well as protection against applications which may harbor Trojans, Spyware, worms or other malicious content. Dedicated appliances called Intrusion Protection Systems (IPS) are also available for fast and comprehensive application-level protection.

You can deploy Firewalls at remote sites, regional offices, your network perimeter, your data center, and even within your internal network in cases where you want to address regulatory requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) or Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB).

VPN Technology
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is the technology of choice for securing two-way communications over untrusted media. VPN uses encryption to prevent intruders from hijacking a data connection between two sites, between a client and a site, or between two internal network segments. Untrusted media usually means the Internet, but it can also mean an internal network segment when you wish to isolate departments such as accounting or human resources. When you deploy VPN, Firewalls are advisable at the destination points in order to verify user identity prior to granting VPN access.

Two basic types of VPN are IPsec VPN and SSL VPN. An IPsec VPN can potentially allow a user to access all network resources. An SSL VPN connects a web browser to a restricted application or set of applications based on the credentials of the user. Remote or branch offices and telecommuters typically use IPsec VPNs, and mobile employees, partners, vendors, and the public typically use SSL VPNs.
