Create a new firewall instance using a simple, self-explanatory one-page wizard in the Firewalls section of the customer portal. You'll need at least one provisioned server to create a firewall instance in the same location as the server.
In computing, a firewall is a network security system that monitors and controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. A firewall typically establishes a barrier between a trusted internal network and an untrusted external network, like the Internet.
Our firewall service is a multi-tenant service, meaning the firewall instances you create in the customer portal are hosted on hardware shared with other clients. There are no bps or pps guaranties. In the best-case scenario, a single virtual instance can pass through 5 Gbps of traffic. Please contact your account manager if you need a dedicated firewall installation for yourself.
