Firewall Implementation is serious business and careful consideration and planning is essential for keeping an organizations network safe from intruders. Firewalls are a system that monitors and controls the network traffic flow of many networks using different security measures. Firewall architectures need to be chosen based on the needs of the organization, while there are many factors involved the most effective solutions are configured in such a way that all network traffic passes through them.

There are four common firewall architectures such as: packet filtering routers, screened-host firewalls, screened-subnet firewalls and dual-homed host firewalls. All of these choices provide different types of security for your organizations network, dependent upon their needs. There are advantages and disadvantages to consider when implementing a firewall system into your organizations network.

First, we should be aware that there is not a network that is 100 percent protected
and will always be forever changing as new technologies roll out and new
vulnerabilities are discovered. We can minimize the risk with firewalls if
configured correctly otherwise an IT guy can make the security of the network
worse. Firewalls can control access to the internal network protecting from
malicious intrusions but not viruses because firewalls do not see what the
packets contain as they pass through. With that said configuring user
authentication helps prevent security breaches within the network.
