The role of Firewall on Cloud Computing
It is true that the digital era has opened up many opportunities in utilizing technology in everyday’s life. Various aspects ranging from lifestyle, entertainment, business and even healthcare are now into digital. That’s why technology can make it easier for people’s activities today.

Therefore, protection is needed to avoid technological security risks. One of them is by using a Firewall system.
According to Forcepoint, a firewall is a network security device that can monitor traffic, grant permission, or block user activity in accordance with implemented security rules. This system aims to provide a barrier between your organization’s internal network and traffic from its external sources.

However, by installing a Firewall, you don’t have to worry about it. Because, the function of a Firewall on Cloud is to determine which users can access the company’s servers.
