3 Reasons to Consider a Cloud-Based Firewall

March 23, 2017

Would you like to increase the productivity of your small-to-medium business while reducing its operating costs? Switching from an on-premise firewall to a cloud-based one may be your ticket to doing so. To help you decide if this move is right for your company, our Montgomery County cloud-based firewall provider is here to tell you about some of the most advantageous characteristics of cloud-managed firewalls:

  1. They offer maximum availability for a low price – When your company opts for a cloud-based firewall, you'll enjoy 99.99% availability, meaning you can access your data virtually whenever you need to. While it is possible to get the same level of availability with an on-premise firewall, doing so comes at a price since an extensive amount of hardware is needed. In comparison, cloud-based firewalls tend to be much more cost-effective since everything is virtualized.
  2. They adjust easily to meet your company's ever-changing needs – Increasing your organization's bandwidth? You won't have to worry about replacing your firewall as you typically have to do with on-premise ones – your cloud-based firewall will scale up automatically, conserving your time and money.
  3. They promote greater safety and security for your business – Another bonus of cloud-managed firewalls is that they make it easy for a provider to remotely monitor all of your company's servers, boundaries, nodes, ports, security policies, networks, routers, data links, hosts, subnets and components. In turn, threats can be diagnosed and eradicated very quickly.

Considering these benefits, it's no wonder so many organizations are making the transition to cloud-based firewalls!

Hiring an Experienced Cloud-Managed Firewall Provider Is Key
