    where to typically find a firewall

    by thetechman2014 ·


    Hi, is it safe to say that when you look for a hardware firewall more than likely it’s somewhere usually by router, switch, or the internet modem. With the way most offices and buildings are setup with the wires running to the jacks and up the wall. The only place I can see it being located is in a comm room around the routers, switches, and internet modem.

      It must be behind the modem (because it’s doesn’t understand the message otherwise) and before the router that spreads the signal across the building.

      But it could be it’s integrated into one of the two if you buy a business model. There’s no technical need for a separate box.

      Yes, it is generally safe to say that a firewall is usually located near or behind the router, switch, or internet modem in most offices and buildings. It is commonly found in a server room where these network devices are located whether it may be a separate device or an integrated one. As I bought it from site as entry-level NGFW
