Miami, FL (PRWEB) August 12, 2014
Most computers now come with a firewall built in, but despite this, the number of computers that are infected with viruses, worms and other types of malware grows by the day. One of the biggest reasons why firewalls are not doing their job, is because many of us have never taken the time to tweak our firewall to make it effective.
A proper firewall system is a network’s first item of defense when it comes to protecting the network’s servers from the various threats of hackers and the Internet. There are many threats such as worms, viruses, hackers, Trojans, malware, spyware, etc., that can prove to be very harmful to computers without any sort of protection. These threats, once they enter into a computer network, can destroy anything and everything that is stored within it. This means all the precious data stored within it will be deleted or corrupted. Telx Computers, the IT service company, announces firewalls with enhanced network security coverage.
The following steps can help introduce small business owners to some very simple ways that they can tweak, supplement, and support their firewall in order to keep their computer and private information as secure as possible.
- Install SP2 onto Windows Operating System
- Enable Auto Updates for the Firewall
- Tweaking the Settings to Usage
- Keeping Settings Consistent Across Networks
- Add Multiple Layers to PC and Security System
- Use Strong Passwords
- A 128-bit WEP Encryption on Wireless Network
- Standby is your PC's Best Friend
- Test #1: Looking for Leaks
