Many business owners are becoming increasingly concerned about network intrusions and the security of their business information. As you are probably aware, network intrusions via the internet are becoming widespread causing more and more small businesses to be targeted.The majority of standard internet routers are not capable of defending against the various types of threats that small businesses are beginning to see.

To increase the level of security on your network, we are recommending adding an additional device to enhance the protection offered by your current internet router. The device is a firewall, which is an all-in-one network security system device that offers a more comprehensive approach to intrusion prevention than standard internet routers. A firewall will not block 100% of threats, but is a major step in increasing the level of network protection.

This is shown in the diagram below.
