Taking advantage of the complicated developments of the Covid-19 pandemic, cybercriminals have expanded their activities with many new methods and tricks.

The most common of these is Malware, which stands for "malicious software", a program or file designed to cause damage to a system.

Therefore, data protection measures must be taken by both individual users and business leaders. Businesses can protect themselves from malicious traffic by using a firewall. Currently, VNG Cloud is providing VNG Cloud Firewall (vCF) solution, a dedicated server for setting up a firewall in the cloud. vCF uses Juniper's vSRX virtual firewall, providing businesses with a powerful tool with cloud-based antivirus capabilities that detect and block spyware, adware, viruses, keyloggers and others. In addition, all infrastructure systems of VNG Cloud are also built with the Cloud Firewall system.
