Do you still depend on a standard firewall for your business needs, yet the workspace internet performance is not up to the mark? Introducing the future of networking- BhaiFi!

BhaiFi or Firewall? Let's help you decide

What we are going to talk about is, that it really comes as a surprise to me that several industry active people have been in a state of confusion trying to differentiate BhaiFi and Firewall. Many of them still use an additional firewall to complement BhaiFi, although it is not needed. This article attempts to clear the air in this regard.

BhaiFi although quite similar to the traditional on-premise firewall in terms of purpose that is to secure an organization’s network, the only difference being that it’s deployed off-premise in the cloud.

BhaiFi is simple, easy-to-use & fully automated - It doesn’t require any human intelligence to be operable.

Not to mention that firewall is just one of the many features of BhaiFi, that work collectively to ensure an even greater degree of enterprise network security, management and end-user privacy.

Why bother with Firewall or BhaiFi?

If your workspace operates without a Firewall protection, then I must let you know that you are plying atop a considerable risk. The importance of protecting and maintaining your network in this increasingly competitive and digitally capable age is not something we need to talk about. You know that already.

Given most of you already have a rough idea with respect to the Firewalls, today we will be specifically looking at the differences that matter the most to your business.

1. PRICING

I’m sure you do realize there is a difference between the terms cost and value. Something that comes with a higher price tag ought not necessarily to be a superior product. Same is true for traditional Firewalls when compared to BhaiFi’s intelligent cloud-based Network Security & Management platform.

When talking about costs, it is essential to take both the CAPEX and OPEX variables into account. Cost of initially setting up BhaiFi is 1/7th the cost of setting up a firewall.

The graph below gives you a glimpse of it:

Additionally, BhaiFi brings to you, success-oriented pricing by using a “Pay-per-user” model, to ensure it doesn’t burden your finances. As can be inferred, BhaiFi guarantees a much better per person Return on Investment (ROI) as compared to any other firewall.

Overall, we can conclude that BhaiFi can be availed at an affordable cost as compared to a traditional Firewall in the initial stages and you end up saving a considerable amount in the long run, making it a far more cost-effective solution.

This adjoining graph affirms the same:

2. VALUE PROPOSITION

BhaiFi comes loaded with tons of functionalities one can only help but miss in the traditional firewall. In order to make sure this does not become another feature list, I have decided to present it all the while keeping the benefits handy:

Time is money. Gone are the days of manually debugging the network issues that wasted a lot of time, all the while compromising profits and reputation. BhaiFi reduces debugging man-hours by identifying issues related to the ISP in real-time without even needing an IT engineer in-person to accomplish the same.
