Firewalls in Kenya

Firewalls in Kenya

Firewalls supply and installation services in Kenya. Did you know that every day, businesses are targeted by an average of 3.5 billion cyberattacks worldwide? That’s why securing your business is just as important as securing your home in today’s digital age. With the rise of cyber crime here in Kenya and above boarders, firewalls have become even more important, as they prevent hackers from gaining unauthorized access to your data, emails and systems. A firewall can stop a hacker completely or deter them to choose an easier target.

What is a network firewall?

A firewall is a security device that protects your network from unauthorized access to private data. Firewalls also secure computers from malicious software, creating a barrier between secured internal networks and untrusted outside networks.

How does a firewall work?

Firewalls typically welcome incoming connections that are allowed to access a network. The security systems will allow or block data packets based on existing security rules. Firewalls build checkpoints that filter web traffic. These systems let you review and act upon rogue network traffic before the attacked network experiences any adverse effects.

With our dependable firewall in place, only trusted sources and IP addresses can access your systems. Most of our firewalls can also monitor audit logs to find connections and traffic that have gotten through. We let our clients use firewalls to gate the borders of their private networks and the host devices.
