Benefits of Firewall and MPLS for Finsys ERP – Higher Security.
Benefits of Firewall Technology
Secure Your Network
Without your knowledge, an application or website, or an outsider can access your data, or can keep track of your activity online. They can then analyze the data they collect and use it against your interests.
If you use a VPN, it can stop people, software, and web browsers from gaining access to your connection. This keeps the information you transmit and receive secure and anonymous.
So, This Saves your Data, your Prices, your Vendor Info, your Customer Info
Hence Biggest Reason to Go for this Architecture
Prevent Internet bandwidth Data wastage by non business usage
Various malware, viruses, synchronisation sites, backup sites, update sites, Cricket matches, Facebook, movies download etc take away important bandwidth.
Risks of intrusion with Firewall ?
The Risk is taking firewall for granted. Giving full access to anybody , without any control.
If you ever give access to anybody, even if it is from Finsys Head office, please give access only for a Limited Period, and for a specific IP Address only.
Can there be Firewall + More Security = MPLS ?

These are the measures it has taken, and is successful in Data Access protection, Hacking Protection, Malware protection, Ramsomware Protection, till now ( as on 25-6-2021)
Did not publish the ERP on the static IP.
Set up MPLS from Airtel. The MPLS specifically is not having any public internet. There is no browser facility on any of the nodes connected to the MPLS.
Users in each factory have fixed IP Addresses, Example : Ludhiana Plant 0.xx.xxx.xxx series, IMT Manesar Plant 1.xx.xxx.xxx Series, and Pune Plant 2.xx.xxx.xxx series. This way there is no accidental clash of IP address between the Plants.
All these IP address series are binded together in One single Virtual Private Network ( VPN ). All users have access to the Intranet Resources. They have ERP Usage etc. Speed is also good.
The Users do not use the Static IP at all. Nobody does that, And nobody has any need to do that. They have no internet at all. Except 2 or 3 people in each plant, all have to work on Intranet only, and ERP only.
No Internet to anybody.
Set up of Internet Cafe type computers which are not on LAN. They are physically separate in separate room. Visible to all, who is using and when.
Email access : All people use Mozilla FireFox / Windows Live / Outlook / Apple Mail . and they also link to the PostMaster Software inside the Intranet. Nobody needs to go to internet. The Postmaster picks the mail from the server and keeps copies of all mails.
Invested to install Additional Server for Mobile Access in-house Server.
Did not Give Browser Access to 95% of the Users in the company
