    I will be launching a new site next year and need absolutely the best firewall protection. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Firewall? Or do you mean SSL Certificate?

    A Firewall is something that prevents people from connecting to your computer but once you open up a port such as 80 (HTTP), it prevents nothing.

    A SSL certificate will encrypt any data you need to over port 443 (HTTPS) and keep that information secure. They also provide insurance against fraudulent transactions that can be tracked to a security breach on your specific site. The best in this is a 128-bit certificate from one of many providers. Do a search and purchase based on price and features.
