Any business with an internet and intranet that allows its employees access to the Internet and corporate resources, implement firewall security solutions to prevent outsiders from accessing its own private data resources and for controlling what outside resources its own users have access to. For ideal network security, a firewall is often installed in a specially designated computer separate from the rest of the network so that no incoming request can get directly at private network resources. A firewall, working closely with other networking infrastructure, examines each network packet to determine whether forward it toward its destination. Threats have evolved much through the years but firewall security is still one of the most fundamental network protection for network of any size.
