There seems to be a distinct lack of urgency among a worrying number of businesses when it comes to protecting their data against cyber attacks and infiltration. Cyber security affects everyone, from at-home PC users to multi-billion pound corporations, as well as those somewhere in the middle. So, it’s time to take it seriously.

We know that buying a firewall might seem like a pointless exercise, particularly if you’re of the (incorrect) belief that you’re unlikely to be affected by an attack. But we’re here to tell you that now is the time to act - and it’s not as difficult as you might think. Businesses of all sizes are vulnerable to viruses, hacking and data leaks, and all it takes is a few simple steps to ensure that you are well protected against this growing threat.

Don’t make assumptions

We speak to a lot of businesses, so we know that many factors are holding them back from treating IT security as a key priority - and one of the main reasons is simply assuming they won’t be affected. In the case of smaller firms, many believe they are an unlikely target for hackers and malicious software due to their size, while their larger counterparts tend to assume they are already protected. Both are wrong.

Having a firewall in place means businesses are in a better position when it comes to protecting themselves, as this technology will go a long way to prevent malicious software from gaining access to a computer through a network. In addition, firewalls can stop a computer from sending malicious software to other computers.

A lot to consider

The process of selecting a firewall can be difficult, but there are certain things that every business should consider before making a purchase.

  • The performance offered by the firewall option - is it suited to your business needs?
  • How easy is the firewall to use? Will it fit in with your day-to-day operations?
  • What security features does it possess? Are these enough, or do you require more sophisticated options?
  • Is the level of protection offered enough?

In our firewall buying guide, Evaris takes a closer look at each of these considerations, helping your business to make the best decision possible about your purchase. We want to give you all the tools you need to ensure your business has the protection it needs to prevent a security breach.
