Any computer, server, router, or application faces the burden of processing traffic received from the network, filtering out harmful traffic, and continuing to communicate with other devices. Firewall solutions relieve these devices of some of that burden and protect a resource from unauthorized users, traffic, and threats, such as malware.

While firewalls can be deployed directly on devices, with host-based firewalls or network address translation firewalls or in front of specific applications, with web application firewalls (WAFs), FWaaS primarily replaces traditional network security firewalls.

Virtual security for your network infrastructure

Placing a firewall as the first point of contact at the edge of a network enables an organization to protect against unsecured external networks, such as the internet. 

Firewall-as-a-service is a natural outgrowth of several technologies: firewall; unified threat management (UTM); and next-generation firewall (NGFW). It provides overarching network access protection, control, and monitoring across modern IT infrastructures.
