Metro Ethernet Security

575 Views
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
Installing a Metro Ethernet that goes from a colo to our corporate office.  Should I route all traffic from the Metro Ethernet through my firewalls? or is the traffic safe since it's technically just a long ethernet cable? I don't want to create unnessesary hops if I don't need to, but I want to make sure that there is a very minimal chance someone can hack into my Metro Ethernet.

Thanks in advance
