Firewall for servers

Hello Ibrahim,

Its common sense, a server farm got to be carefully placed into your network.

You will have the most important information on your company on those serves, why would not you have a firewall for them, would be the right question?

Each single network has a lot of vulnerabilities, we as security engineers are in charge of reducing the amount of vulnerabilities so people on the outside of our network cannot compromise our servers.

And that is the whole point of a firewall, reduce the possibility of an attack to our servers.

Hope this helps.
