The first thing you do on a firewall is open port 80 and port 443 – HTTP and HTTPS. While the firewall may protect you from other threats, 90% of the problems with hacks and intrusions facing businesses today are web-based.
Snapt’s philosophy is to scan that web traffic to make sure it is a proper request and is not trying to break into your website or exploit an innocent user. We scan the full request that comes in and analyze it against what people should be asking for.
We then make our own entirely new request to your web server to ask for that data, and pass the data back to the user who requested it. Potential threats never connect directly to your server!
