Dedicated Servers :: Cisco Dedicated Firewall Information
If you have got a dedicated server or a colocation service with us, you have the option to have your own dedicated firewall that you can control and manage yourself. As we all know the threat of hacking and computer crime is always there and we are forever trying to protect ourselves. If you have your own server you need to ensure you do everything you can to keep it safe and and protect your self from the sophisticated techniques the hackers use these days. You need to consider data recovery as well as having a firewall should you get hacked.
How does a firewall work
If you purchase one of our firewalls, we will only supply you with Cisco equipment which we see to be the best. It is not particularly cheap equipment but its well worth the money. The firewall monitors every single packet of data in and out of the network or your server for malicious traffic or unauthorised access attempts. With the Cisco firewall's that we provide you get a very comprehensive control panel where you can do literally everything security wise.

100% Fully Customisable Rule Tables
Full Network Address Translation if Required
If you would like your server to be on local internal IP addresses, or even have a range of services that you would like to access which are internal, you can do this by translating one address into many and vise versa. This method allows better use of external IP addresses and higher levels of security.
Built In Protection for Key Applications & Services
As standard the firewall comes with a rule set that stops certain known traffic. This should be left in place for best performance. Out base line firewall can handle around 130,000 concurrent sessions, so even in the even of a massive flood of packets, the firewall will have no trouble in stopping it. These automated rules will not affect any services that you run, they are extremely clever and know whats not wanted!
