With so many un-trusted websites on the internet, it is very difficult to keep the system secure. Internet and web security is at the center of most decent and magnificent security innovations. It is not essential just to have the best Intrusion-Prevention System (IPS), but configuring the firewall is as important as anything else. Otherwise, you will only be giving an open invitation to the intruders. Rule base is a good kickstart to internet security, but precisely what could be the best practices in internet security through firewall. What should we do? And what is the best configuration?
