According to data from siliconangle.com, over 60% of businesses were utilizing the cloud for IT-related work in 2013. With that in mind, it’s critical to implement rigorous security measures and firewall management protocols in order to maximize IT infrastructure protection. One way to ensure optimal network security is to invest in a team of firewall consultants. These firewall experts can help keep your IT network as secure as possible. But before you decide whether your business is in need of additional firewall support, it’s important to know the facts. Here are just a few compelling reasons to consider investing in a team of firewall consultants for your business.

Non-Stop Monitoring
While most of your IT employees are off the clock as soon as the business day ends, that’s not quite the case with firewall specialists. While they may not always be physically present, they’re constantly monitoring your business’s firewall operations and preventing any problems before they arise. These are problems that, if left unresolved, could result in unnecessary IT downtime. For many business owners, this peace of mind is absolutely priceless.

Professional Expertise
Another compelling reason to consider adding firewall specialists to your IT infrastructure management is area of expertise. It’s no secret that there are seemingly countless components to any IT or network infrastructure, and firewall consultants are specifically trained to work through some of the most common firewall issues, effectively eliminating any security risks your business may have had. This typically includes training and certification for security vendors, as well as keeping firewalls up to date. Even the most minor or seemingly obscure issue can be alleviated with the thoughtful troubleshooting processes of an experienced firewall specialist.

Business Updates
Finally, firewall consultants can take detailed notes and provide reports regarding the exact status of your business’s firewall. This goes even further to help prevent issues while keeping management as up-to-date as possible about IT infrastructure management.

Ultimately, understanding these benefits can help you determine whether investing in a team of firewall consultants is the right decision for your business. For more information about firewalls or selecting a Meraki reseller, contact Manhattan Tech Support.
