What is DMZ?

Features >> DMZ


A demilitarized zone (DMZ) is a physical or logical subnetwork that contains and exposes an organization’s external-facing services to an untrusted network. The purpose of a DMZ is to add an additional layer of security to an organization’s LAN: an external network node can access only what is exposed in the DMZ, while the rest of the organization’s network is firewalled. The DMZ allows the organization extra time to detect and address breaches before intruders further penetrate into the internal networks.
