Protect your network with advanced firewall solutions from Akita
IT Network Security
What Is A Firewall?
A firewall is a security solution designed to monitor traffic across your network.
Any IT network will have several points where internal systems communicate with external servers and systems. This might be your email exchange, your website, a cloud service or similar.
A firewall will protect these and other access points on your network, ensuring that they are not exposed to unwanted third parties.
Once malware and hacking attempts would simply ‘look’ for unprotected ways into your systems. But as security has improved, attacks have become far more advanced. As a result, malware and ransomware will now try to enter a system at a deeper, application level.
For this reason, organisations require a sophisticated way to protect themselves.

SOPHOS XG FIREWALLS
Sophos XG firewalls are our preferred security solution. They provide application-layer protection for networks, preventing even the most advanced attacks from getting through.
Sophos solutions can be used to defend both physical networks and VPNs. As well as this, they can also prevent other types of attacks. These include attacks such as DDoS, from taking down your website or systems through load-balancing.
As a comprehensive solution, XG Firewalls also provide web filtering functionality. This prevents users from accessing websites or online material that may contain threats and viruses.
Meanwhile, Sophos’ Security Heartbeat technology communicates with an organisation’s anti-virus software, ensuring that if something does gain access to your network it can be quickly identified across all systems, neutralised and security gaps eliminated.
