As companies move their applications and data to the cloud, they lose visibility into, or control over, their entire networks. Companies are learning they can’t just depend on their cloud providers to oversee security. They need to find a way to do it themselves, and this is where FWaaS comes in.
A firewall acts as a barrier to prevent unauthorized access to the network. It does this by proactively monitoring all incoming and outgoing traffic as well as by applying and enforcing security policies.
Firewalls were originally created to protect on-site company networks, but as more companies moved their applications and data to the cloud, firewalls evolved. Now, firewall as a service, or FWaaS, enables firewalls to be delivered as part of a company’s cloud infrastructure.
FWaaS enables companies to aggregate all traffic from multiple sources (e.g., on-site data centers, branch offices, mobile users, cloud infrastructure) into the cloud, consistently apply and enforce security policies across all locations and users, and gain better visibility and control over their networks.
