A network firewall is a security system that controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. In the context of cloud computing, a network firewall can be used to protect cloud-based resources from unauthorized access or attacks from the internet.
In a cloud environment, network firewalls are implemented in a number of ways. One common approach is to use a virtual firewall appliance, which is a software-based firewall that is deployed as a virtual machine (VM) in the cloud. This allows the firewall to be easily managed and configured through Cyfuture Cloud’s API.
Another option is to use a cloud-based firewall service, which is a managed firewall service that is provided by Cyfuture Cloud. These services are typically fully managed by Cyfuture Cloud, making them easy to set up and maintain.
Regardless of the implementation, the primary function of a network firewall in the cloud is to protect resources from unauthorized access or attacks. This can include blocking traffic from certain IP addresses or networks, limiting access to specific ports or protocols, and inspecting traffic for malicious activity.
A network firewall is an important security measure for protecting cloud-based resources and ensuring the security and integrity of cloud-based networks.
Firewalls can be classified based on the level of the network at which they operate.
These firewalls operate at the network layer (layer 3) of the OSI model and examine the header information of each incoming and outgoing packet to determine whether it should be allowed to pass through the firewall.
These firewalls operate at the transport layer (layer 4) of the OSI model and establish a connection between two systems before allowing traffic to pass between them.
These firewalls operate at the application layer (layer 7) of the OSI model and can examine the contents of packets for specific patterns or keywords.
