Firewall explained in 60 seconds, an essential feature for secure web hosting utilized by virtually all web hosts to secure their web servers.
Firewall is a security device; it filters traffic, has a customizable set of rules, and protects your data. Potentially malicious behavior, coming in like wrecking ball, is stopped by your firewall.
At Liquid Web, we deploy two types of firewalls, both of which have that same essential function: preventing evil-doers access. With dedicated servers, we use physical Cisco firewalls. That means you can consolidate security for your entire hosting environment into a managed security device.
For Storm Cloud Servers, we use cloud-enabled firewalls, Each is individually manageable.
In either case, the devices are necessary for securing your website hosting environment against unauthorized third-party access. When a server is not secured, it is like leaving the door of your store or house without a lock. Anyone can just push the door to get in. As a result, your investment is in jeopardy, or your life is in danger. Securing a web server is that serious.
