Are you in the market for firewall hardware? Because there are more virtual barbarians at the gates of your network than ever, you may want to reinforce your software defenses with firewall hardware. Dedicated network firewall hardware is located at the outer perimeter of your network and runs embedded security firmware that, for example, runs packet filters to inspect all inbound data streams for malicious code. Other security hardware can create virtual private networks, or VPN. A VPN uses established protocols to create “tunnels” that encrypt data at the origin and decrypt it at the destination, allowing the use of public telecommunications networks without fear of being compromised.
PC Connection offers an extensive array of firewall solutions from familiar vendors like McAfee and Dell to network firewall hardware from security specialists like Checkpoint and F5. Firewall solutions range from the Fortinet FORTIWEB and McAfee Cloudshield products, designed for securing enterprise networks, to Barracuda firewall hardware that can thwart intrusions into the PC in your basement. Dedicated VPN hardware options also run from industrial-grade products down to home-use firewall hardware like Netgear.
