SNS PAYG virtual firewalls are mainly used in two cases: for the protection of access to hosted services, and the protection of users' Internet access. How they are used determines the required level of protection.
Protection of access to hosted services
As a service provider, you host your clients' servers and applications in your virtual infrastructure. When you deploy SNS PAYG, you secure your clients' connections to their resources in your datacenters:
- Connections by users in your clients' premises, and
- Connections by mobile users outside the premises.
In this case, only the VPN feature is necessary. Select Standard protection, which will protect user connections through a VPN.
Protection of users' Internet access
As an Internet service provider to your clients, you deploy SNS PAYG in your infrastructure to protect users who access the Internet through your datacenter.
In this case, full protection is necessary. Select Premium protection, which ensures protection of servers through features such as antivirus, Extended Web Control URL database, and vulnerability management.
