I am getting quotes to upgrade our current WAN. Right now we have all Internet access going through the main office. In the office I have the usual a router, firewall and IDS. I received a quote from New Edge Networks for a MPLS solution with Internet access from their cloud.
When I asked about security and the need for firewalls I was told I did not need a local firewall because they already block all incoming traffic before it gets to our network.
I was looking for opinions on the need for a local firewall at each of our locations.
Thanks for any information.
