As a technology provider, I am always looking for good solutions to decrease risk and potential downtime and lost revenues. One way we have been able to leverage technology to do this is by increasing redundancy.
Think of your business network, and think of all the things that could possibly go wrong. Imagine the number one bottleneck of your network – probably the firewall sitting between your internal network and the internet service provider’s modem. What happens if your firewall kicks the bucket? On the busiest day of the year…or during month end…are you confident of your ability to reconnect your internal network to the internet with little to no downtime? How complicated is your configuration? Do you have anyone available at a moment’s notice to assist in bringing all your systems back up? Do you have spare hardware that is appropriate for this sort of an emergency? How many hours or days would you be dead in the water?
Now consider implementing a solution of high-availability redundant firewalls. One goes down, your network keeps on moving. And the level of security of traffic moving though your UTM Firewall remains the same. The switchover from the bad firewall to the backup is seamless and almost imperceptible to the average user. This is redundancy and resiliency.
