A Host of Firewall Options

The promise the Internet offers for open information exchange, near instant knowledge sharing and partner/ customer/ employee business connectivity also opens big windows of vulnerability.

LAN /WAN / VPN /WIFI /VoIP /DSL all include numerous access points that create the data and knowledge sharing opportunity, but each connection point also represents a potential liability that can threaten the security and integrity of your business data assets.

At Helix Computer Systems, we take these threats very seriously. From long experience, we have learned what to expect and how to protect against intrusion, theft and sabotage. We use several different strategies for protecting your important data assets, among these are firewalls both hardware and software. With these we can proactively watch all the data traversing through any window or doorway on your network. We can automatically "xray" the packet for threat. We can log all the traffic, checking for patterns of mal intent. Here we showcase some of the products and strategies we prefer.
