These switches, are available in 1 to 6 port. They are ideal for home or office use and enable you to connect multiple PC's, gaming consoles, printers and other network enabled devices together. Using a switch allows increased performance and higher bandwidth in comparison to a traditional hub.
These switches, available in 8 to 16 port. They are the ideal choice for small to medium network use. Switches allow connection of multiple network enabled devices, such as PC's, printers, security cameras, NAS drives etc.
These 24 to 48 port switches are the ideal choice for large office, schools, server applications and large corporate organisations. Geared towards high end networks which include devices such as NAS drives, security cameras, work stations and printers into one network.
Power over Ethernet switches are switches combine a power source and data through the Ethernet cable. This setup removes the need for a power source at the network device. These PoE switches are suitable for network webcam setups, intercom systems, VoIP and wireless access points where there is no power nearby. A non-PoE device will require a compatible PoE Splitter.
Although a firewall will prevent a degree of email based threats, dedicated email security appliances, either physical or virtual, are designed purely to focus on this area of vulnerability. Providing superior protection from inbound and outbound threats - including spam, phishing, zombie attacks, malware, and even ransomware, they also minimize deployment, administration and bandwidth expenses.
A firewall is a security device which can be either hardware and/or software based. The purpose of a firewall is to permit or deny proxy data coming in and out of your computer system and/or network. A firewall may simply be hardware deep packet inspection, or linked to various software signatures looking at anti-virus, anti-spam, or phishing threats. In this latter case they are often referred to as UTM devices (Unified Threat Management). If a higher degree of security is required, then a Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) should be considered.
A Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) is defined by its ability to address the more complex and ever-changing threats in the cyber security world. Using a combination of signatures on the hardware with the latest threat intelligence from cloud engine databases, a NGFW can stop unknown threats and prevent them from spreading to the network even if they have never been identified before. Upon deep packet inspection, if a profile cannot be matched against known threat or regular traffic types it will be 'sand-boxed' in the cloud until such a time it can be identified and classified. This type of enhanced firewall features help address 'zero-day' attacks and sophisticated ransomware and are highly recommended in protecting a network.
