ITS and SonicWall provide the capacity to stop viruses, ransomware, malware and more before they enter your network. Content and application control tools also direct bandwidth to the most important resources and give you the ability to block spam, unauthorized web activity, or throttle/eliminate access to social media sites if desired.
What Is A Firewall?
A firewall is a network appliance that filters Internet traffic entering and leaving your network. Different brands and models have different filtering protocols; we prefer firewall appliances and services by SonicWall.
SonicWall firewalls utilize both cloud-based and on-box tools to deeply inspect Internet traffic and files quickly and efficiently without slowing down your network. Files can be compared against known threats (signature-based), opened in a sandbox and checked for unknown vulnerabilities, and observed using machine learning before delivering a verdict of good file/bad file.
ITS is proud to offer unparalleled protection and security services through its Silver Medal Partnership with SonicWall. ITS is a premier SonicWall Partner in Iowa and throughout the Midwest. We provide solutions for K-12 schools, colleges and universities, and small- to medium- businesses.
SonicWall’s Capture Advanced Threat Protection provides unmatched effectiveness against ransomware, malware and zero-day exploits. SonicWall extends its physical firewall protection with multiple Capture Engines to provide near real-time signature deployment. The Capture cloud service is the only advanced-threat-detection offering that utilizes multi-layers of sandboxing to analyze suspicious code from websites, attachments and links.
