Firegate's Firewall Interface

Firegate’s firewall interface is designed around the safety through simplicity philosophy. Security interfaces that are easy to comprehend play a significant role in decreasing operator errors. After all, minimizing the mistakes that an operator can make when configuring network security enables Firegate to provide the protection for which it was bought.

Out of the box, Firegate offers immediate protection for the private network. The standard Firegate firewall philosophy is simple enough. Computers on the private network are allowed to access the Internet; but computers on the Internet are not allowed to access the private network. Firegate’s default automatically configured firewall rules are perfect for the needs of most company networks.

For the more unique network environments, Firegate offers simple and easy firewall configuration interfaces that minimize opportunities for administrator error and reduce deployment time. Firegate’s advanced firewall logging capabilities enable administrators to track individual packets that hit the firewall or connections that pass through the firewall.

Part of the firewall services, Firegate’s Network Address Translation (NAT) routing feature supports pass-through for advanced protocols such as PPTP, IPsec, FTP, TFTP and IRC, among others. 

Knowledgeable network engineers can further use the TCP and UDP port forwarding options to redirect specific services from the public interface on the Firegate to servers on the private network.
