Hardware firewalls protect your device from external threats coming from the internet. They inspect incoming packets and decline suspicious ones to secure your company’s internal network. Hardware firewalls are an integral part of network firewall security.

Secure your system with a hardware firewall and a VPN
Hardware firewalls are essential tools for monitoring your company’s traffic and blocking suspicious activity. However, a VPN can improve your security even more.
While a hardware firewall protects your network from external threats, it doesn’t protect your outgoing traffic. You can encrypt your traffic with NordLayer to protect your company’s data and privacy.
Hardware firewalls might not always prevent denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. A VPN changes your IP address and redirects the attack from you to a VPN server. A server grants additional protection as it mitigates more traffic than your regular connection and can be easily changed.
The probability of cybercriminals targeting you is much lower if you hide your IP. You can change it easily with NordLayer. With concealed IP and hardware firewall enabled, your company’s servers and data will be highly secured.
Hardware firewall protects you just within your local network. However, it wouldn’t safeguard you on a business trip. Be safe while using public Wi-Fi anywhere with NordLayer. It protects your traffic from data thefts and malicious interceptions while browsing in the open.

Frequently asked questions
What is a hardware firewall?
A hardware firewall is a physical device, which protects your local computer network from hacker attacks or rogue data packets coming from the internet. Firewall hardware also blocks malicious content from accessing your network. In contrast, a software firewall protects you from threats coming from your internal systems (e.g., opening a malicious link, phishing email, etc.). It also monitors your outgoing traffic.
What does a firewall do?
A firewall monitors your outgoing and incoming online traffic based on customized rules. It secures your network from intrusion as well as malicious attacks. A firewall works like a safety barrier between internal and external networks. It also enables you to control the information coming through your network.
How does a firewall work?
A firewall is a software or a hardware piece which filters the data coming in or out of your device. A user customizes its settings, and the firewall uses them to determine whether to allow or deny entry of incoming data packets. If you don’t have a firewall in your company, a hacker might intercept your systems through a security hole. However, with a firewall, you can control and monitor your traffic and prevent rogue connections by its smart customization.
