What exactly is a Firewall and why is it needed? An excellent description of the basic functions of a Firewall (from Wikipedia) is as follows:

"A firewall is a device or set of devices designed to permit or deny network transmissions based upon a set of rules and is frequently used to protect networks from unauthorized access while permitting legitimate communications to pass.

Many personal computer operating systems include software-based firewalls to protect against threats from the public Internet. Many routers that pass data between networks contain firewall components and, conversely, many firewalls can perform basic routing functions."

Stearns Business Machines specializes in the installation of both hardware and software firewalls to protect your network from intrusion. Please call us for more information about the type of firewall you need and a quote on installation.
