Internet Security | Print |

Internet Security can be a tricky area for a lot of companies. Only recently, some companies, particularly smaller companies, have started to catch on to the fact they are at risk. Any connection to a public medium is subject to a threat, just as your front door to your office should be guarded, or at least locked when no one is watching, so too, should your Internet connection be protected in the darkness of cyberspace.

Through its partners, BMG Communications offers a variety of security solutions for business networks. The most common form of security is a Firewall. Conceptually, a Firewall is on the edge of your LAN (Local Area Network), or between your individual computer and its Internet connection. It acts as a virtual wall, asking each packet of data where it came from, where it's going, or other relevant information to determine whether or not that packet is allowed to pass through the Firewall.

They can be used to protect the internal network against attacks from the outside, avoiding entrance to the network from the intruders. They can also be used to keep internal users on the network from visiting unwanted places or doing unwanted things outside the network that might be considered a risk.

Usually, if a customer does not have a need to gain access to the network from outside, over the Internet, they will then configure the Firewall to restrict all outside access, allowing no in-bound traffic over the circuit. Although this is the safest configuration, it is considered safe to allow some access into the network for various purposes, usually consisting of an IP-VPN application in conjunction with the Firewall.

Firewalls come in many forms, but the two primary categories are Hardware Firewalls and Software Firewalls. Some companies offer combo solutions that use some hardware and software in one unit to provide these services, as well as other more basic routing functionality.

Depending upon your service provider, some offer integrated managed solutions for a recurring fee, while sometimes it's best to deal with a local integrator to purchase or lease this type of equipment or software solution.

BMG Communications will team up with you to determine the best solution for your Internet Security strategy, based on your current network configuration, expectation levels and budget.
