DMZs (demilitarized zones) are the network equivalent of neutral ground. They provide an isolated network segment for public-facing services, such as Web and mail servers. The private side of your network is protected from these servers, as their public accessibility makes them more vulnerable to compromise.
Visit our resource center for news, tips and expert advice on how to configure a DMZ to prevent unwanted external access to your network.
