Implement a network security device that gives you full oversight over the traffic flowing through your network. Tailor your firewall to manage, block and protect your business from unauthorised access that slows your business down.
A firewall is a crucial component of network security that acts as a barrier between a trusted internal network and an untrusted external network, such as the internet. It serves as a protective shield that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules.
Firewalls can be either hardware or software-based and work by examining data packets to determine if they should be allowed or blocked. They act as the first line of defence against unauthorised access, malicious attacks, and potential network breaches.
One of the primary functions of a firewall is to enforce access control policies, ensuring that only authorised traffic is allowed to enter or leave a network. It achieves this by analysing the source and destination addresses, port numbers, and other relevant information contained in network packets. By applying a set of predefined rules, a firewall can make decisions about whether to permit or deny specific connections or data transmissions. This mechanism prevents unauthorised access attempts, protects sensitive information, and reduces the risk of network attacks such as hacking, malware infections, and data breaches.
Additionally, firewalls provide network address transition (NAT) capabilities, allowing multiple devices within a private network to share a single public IP address. This feature enhances privacy and security by masking the internal IP addresses from the outside world. Firewalls also offer advanced features such as intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS), virtual private network (VPN) support, and application-level filtering. These functionalities add layers of protection, further safeguarding networks against evolving threats and ensuring a secure environment for data transmission and communication. Overall, firewalls play a critical role in maintaining the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of network resources.

Advantages of Unity’s Firewall
Firewall monitor and control network traffic, acting as a barrier between your internal network and the internet, safeguarding against unauthorised access and malicious attacks.
Firewalls enable access control, defining rules for permitted or denied connections and data transmissions. This ensures authorised users and approved traffic, reducing the risk of unauthorised access and breaches.
Firewalls mitigate hacking, malware, and intrusion threats by inspecting network packets. They detect and block suspicious activities, safeguarding your network and sensitive data from potential harm.
Privacy & Confidentiality
Firewalls offer NAT capabilities, enabling multiple devices in a private network to share one public IP. This conceals internal IP addresses, enhancing privacy and thwarting external tracking or targeting of devices.
Advanced firewalls enable application-level control and monitoring, enforcing policies to restrict unauthorised access and mitigate the risk of compromising systems with unauthorised or malicious software.
Scalability & Flexibility
Firewalls offer hardware and software solutions, customisable to your network’s needs. They scale easily, integrate with IDS and VPNs, and provide a comprehensive, adaptable security infrastructure.
