The Need for a Proxy Firewall
With a variety of different firewalls available, it's extremely important to fully understand the distinct differences between each type. When it comes to a proxy firewall, a direct connection from a client to the Internet cannot be made. By utilizing this firewall option, your network will be provided with a specified level of security to ensure that important business files and data are protected at all times. Through a proxy firewall, a client will never be able to communicate directly with Internet servers or services. Instead, a separate connection is created from a proxy server to Internet servers, which is requested directly by the client node to the proxy server. When a proxy firewall creates this connection, each individual user request will create two separate connections. The first connection is from the user to the proxy, while the second connection is from the proxy to the Internet servers or services. With a heightened level of control, a proxy firewall is ideal for any organization that requires additional protection from unwanted network threats.
