The firewall works both by preventing intrusions and by making it difficult for the user to invite the threat into the system. It is a well-known fact that the vast majority of attacks on companies are made through social engineering – when the criminal deceives the user into offering himself access to the network.
This can be done through fake websites, called phishing, or by downloading an infected attachment, among others. Whatever the method, the firewall can identify that the environment is risky before the user can access it. That way, IT needs to be less concerned with this monitoring and spend their time on issues that are more relevant to the business.

Rapid response to attacks
Even with all the dedication and attention of an IT team, the number of attacks on companies is so great that it is difficult (or even impossible) to completely shield an environment. In such cases, what matters is quick action to contain the threat and prevent data compromise. And isn’t it that the firewall also helps at that time?
The tool can identify an anomaly in access immediately, something that not even antivirus can in some cases. Alerted about the origin and cause of a breach, IT can act as soon as possible and reject the attack before it has access to important assets.
