SoftLayer’s Hardware Firewall service offering provides customers with an essential layer of security that is provisioned on demand without service interruptions.  Upon its activation, the Hardware Firewall service blocks all unwanted activity from hitting your server, allowing its full abilities to be dedicated for its intended use, rather than having an increased workload due to unnecessary traffic.

The Hardware Firewall service is available as an add-on feature for all servers on the SoftLayer network.
