Virtual Firewalls

The "virtal firewall" offers JKU institutes and organizations better protection to guard against any dangerous elements off of the internet.

The firewall limits external access to the computer in your network system. However, there are no restrictions regarding access from your computer to data on the internet.

If needed, the virtual firewall can be installed at your organization and maintained by the Department of Network Systems & Telephone Services.
