If your business needs to quickly provide secure connections for your hosted Dedicated Mac Mini or Dedicated Mac Pro for your employees who are working from home or who travel, then consider a Clarity Mac VPN.

A Clarity Mac VPN encrypts your traffic through a secure end-to-end VPN tunnel to ensure optimal security of your data and communications.

Clarity looks at your existing Apple hardware that will be connecting and establishes a Site-to-Site VPN tunnel to see if it is compatible. We can also make a recommendation on the best suited VPN technology solution that will maximize reliable connectivity.

Using Clarity’s managed firewalls, communication to your hosted Mac Mini server or Mac Pro server will be secured via a VPN tunnel. There are a wide range of protocols and each has their own benefits and disadvantages, but Clarity offers the full spectrum: IPSEC and SSL.

What is a Firewall?

Firewalls are a cybersecurity tool that manages security threats and mitigate risks. They help secure your data.

How Many Types of Firewalls are There?

There are two types of Mac firewall services offered:  Managed Shared Firewalls and Managed Dedicated Firewalls.

Clarity’s Mac Managed Shared Firewalls

Managed Shared Firewalls are a Clarity Mac managed service. With our Managed Shared Firewalls, you get Fortinet’s endpoint client which includes AV, Applications Firewalls and VA. Clarity also configures your shared firewalls security parameters and rules. It is a physical device on a shared cluster with other clients on a public VLAN. This means that you are protected from external IP addresses that are outside your IP scope and subnet. However, you will still be visible to other clients that share the same IP subnet. If additional security behind the network is necessary, you can get a dedicated public VLAN or lock down your native OS firewalls.

Clarity’s Mac Managed Dedicated Firewalls

A Managed Dedicated Firewall is also a managed service that you can add to your Dedicated Mac Mini and Dedicated Mac Pro servers or Mac Private Cloud with Clarity Mac Hosting. However, it is a dedicated appliance that is dedicated to your Mac environment. Dedicated Firewalls include a private VLAN, providing total separation and exclusion on the hardware layer through NAT. Even though some Clarity Mac clients have been told to lock down their native OS firewalls, it is not necessary under this service. With Clarity Mac Dedicated Firewalls you get additional features such as secure VPN connectivity for secure encrypted communications.
