Firewall Options

Software Firewall - Available with all systems, built into the operating system. A software firewall can work in many cases, but may not protect against specific system-based vulnerabilities. It can also make the system more susceptible to denial of service attacks, and requires close policy management.

Shared Firewall - Steadfast's shared firewall product is a redundant F5 hardware firewall, offering a good level of protection with flexible capacity. This firewall provides scalable protection.

Dedicated SRX Firewall - Recommended for large environments, this option offers IPsec tunnels, added IDS/IPS features, and other routing and management capabilities. Redundancy is attainable with two firewall devices.
