Importance of Keeping your firewall up to date

Keeping your firewall up to date is the easiest way to protect your network and data. Aging firewalls present a security risk for your environment. A firewall that is 5 years old is typically 50% less effective at blocking attacks than a unit that is only 3 years old. Keeping your firmware up to date is the first step, but, with evolving ways of attack, even the hardware can be susceptible. Mission Critical Systems can provide a non-biased assessment of your current firewall, and provide a recommendation if the unit should be replaced.
