GoGrid's Hardware Firewall protects your cloud infrastructure from malicious threats while providing you with secure server administrative access through VPN tunnels.

GoGrid’s experienced Systems Administrators will setup, maintain and manage your firewall ensuring your hosted Internet environment is able to withstand these sophisticated threats. Hardware firewalls are also essential in helping you construct a PCI compliant environment. Host-based firewalls are inadequately equipped to protect against these attacks because of the multitude of attack vectors used. GoGrid offers the enterprise-grade Fortinet hardware firewall. Managed Cisco ASA firewalls are also available in all of data centers and can be ordered through your account manager.
