A new article posted to ProAccura’s website offers small business owners a brief introduction to choosing a firewall. The article is the first entry in a series of blogs that will attempt to breakdown the intricacies of small business network security. In the upcoming months ProAccura plans to post several articles to their website concerning network security, in addition to other IT topics pertinent for small to medium sized businesses.
As part of ProAccura’s outsourced IT services, their blog is designed to be a helpful resource for small to medium size businesses. This new post covers an essential element to managing and protecting systems and customer data.
“We find that one of the most confusing parts of IT management for small businesses is figuring out what kind of security is right for them,” stated Ben Fortenberry, ProAccura Senior Manager of IT and Security. “The main purpose of this series is to inform clients as to what a firewall system does and how they can make a more educated purchasing decision.”
The blog opens with a short explanation of the two main categories of firewalls and some basic elements to consider. Towards the end of the blog ProAccura goes into more detail on the type of security a firewall can offer. They use Dell’s™ SonicWALL™, their preferred manufacturer of small business network and data security solutions as an example.

“The message we want to deliver in this blog and the ones following it is that when choosing security for a small business managers need to make sure they have the right tools for the job,” added Fortenberry. “There are a lot of options out there and like most technology, some are going to be better than others, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the most expensive option is the right fit for a business’s needs. First learn how this technology works and its applications and then start looking for that perfect solution.”
