Simply a Firewall controls what traffic is allowed to enter and leave a business network. Allowing safe and secure usage of commonly used services such as email, FTP, web, voice, and many more.
Firewalls can take many forms, from software that runs on hardened servers, to high speed dedicated appliances.
