A firewall is a barrier between the internet and a private network, helping to screen out malicious traffic before it reaches your computer or network. Based on rules that are configured, a firewall either permits or denies information from passing through to the private network.  Firewalls protect from numerous threats including hackers, incoming viruses or worms, and sometimes outgoing traffic that may have originated from a virus.

There are various types of firewalls that can be installed: desktop, hardware, and commercial firewall. Some firewalls also offer protection for telecommuter desktops and notebooks when they are used with residential lines or logging into hotel, airport, or public bandwidth. Power 1 can provide you with an appropriate firewall solution to suit your needs. Because we understand the importance of keeping private information safeguarded, we have even developed our own firewall platform.
