A firewall can help protect your computer and data by managing your network traffic. It does this by blocking unsolicited and unwanted incoming network traffic. A firewall validates access by assessing this incoming traffic for anything malicious like hackers and malware that could infect your computer.
1. Monitors Network Traffic
All of the benefits of firewall security start with the ability to monitor network traffic. Data coming in and out of your systems creates opportunities for threats to compromise your operations. By monitoring and analyzing network traffic, firewalls leverage preestablished rules and filters to keep your systems protected. With a well-trained IT team, you can manage your levels of protection based on what you see coming in and out through your firewall.
2. Stops Virus Attacks
Nothing can shut your digital operations down faster and harder than a virus attack. With hundreds of thousands of new threats developed every single day, it is vital that you put the defenses in place to keep your systems healthy. One of the most visible benefits of firewalls is the ability to control your system’s entry points and stop virus attacks. The cost of damage from a virus attack on your systems could be immeasurably high, depending on the type of virus.
3. Prevents Hacking
Unfortunately, the trend of businesses moving more toward digital operations invites thieves and bad actors to do the same. With the rise of data theft and criminals holding systems hostage, firewalls have become even more important, as they prevent hackers from gaining unauthorized access to your data, emails, systems, and more. A firewall can stop a hacker completely or deter them to choose an easier target.
4. Stops Spyware
In a data-driven world, a much-needed benefit is stopping spyware from gaining access and getting into your systems. As systems become more complex and robust, the entry points criminals can use to gain access to your systems also increase. One of the most common ways unwanted people gain access is by employing spyware and malware—programs designed to infiltrate your systems, control your computers, and steal your data. Firewalls serve as an important blockade against these malicious programs.
5. Promotes Privacy
An overarching benefit is the promotion of privacy. By proactively working to keep your data and your customers’ data safe, you build an environment of privacy that your clients can trust. No one likes their data stolen, especially when it is clear that steps could have been taken to prevent the intrusion.
Additionally, upgraded data-protection systems can be a competitive advantage and a selling point to customers and clients. The benefit increases the more sensitive the data your company deals with.
