With the onset of the digital revolution, the firewall was created to protect the data security of the onsite networks of companies. But as it kept transforming and evolving, businesses saw value in storing their data and other assets on the cloud, due to which firewalls also had to improve. Thus came the use of FWaaS.

FWaaS, or Firewall as a Service, is a cloud-based security service that provides firewall protection to organizations by blocking unauthorized access to their networks. The firewall is configured and managed by a third-party service provider, making it easier for organizations to protect their networks without maintaining their hardware or software. FWaaS can protect various networked devices, including computers, servers, and internet of things (IoT) devices.



Benefits of Firewall as a Service

There are various reasons why FWaaS is beneficial for companies: 

1.     Easy to Set Up and Manage

FWaaS is generally easy to set up and manage, as the service provider takes care of the configuration and maintenance of the firewall. This can be particularly useful for small businesses or organizations that need in-house IT staff with expertise in firewall management.


2.     Scalable

FWaaS is highly scalable, as you can easily adjust your firewall protection to match the changing needs of your organization.


3.     Integrated with Security Policy

Only on the traffic that passes through the firewall can the security policy be enforced. But with FWaaS, organizations can easily send all the traffic across their entire network through its firewalls, allowing for unified and consistent security policies.

Without a firewall, an organization's network is vulnerable to hackers and malicious software attacks, which could compromise sensitive data and disrupt operations. Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) is an important security measure for organizations of all sizes, as it helps to protect networks from unauthorized access and cyber threats.
