Firewalls are an important step in securing your IBM IaaS environment (and all the information stored there) as well as preventing malicious activity from ever reaching your servers or end users. When added to your security strategy, hardware and software firewall options will help ensure uptime, protect your servers and network, and give you greater control of your infrastructure’s protection settings. To add a firewall to a server, click on the link Devices > Device List > Click the desired server > Configuration > Bottom of the page: Order Hardware Firewall in the customer portal. This will begin the order process for an appropriate firewall based on the uplink speed of the selected server.
