Question

Pergunta sobre a necessidade de configurar um firewall na interface gráfica do DigitalOcean

Prezados,

Gostaria de expressar minha gratidão por ser um cliente fiel da DigitalOcean. Recentemente, criei um Docker Cluster utilizando o Traefik.io e gostaria de saber se ainda é necessário configurar um firewall através da interface gráfica do DigitalOcean.

Embora eu tenha conhecimento básico em segurança cibernética, ainda tenho algumas dúvidas em relação à segurança do meu cluster e quero garantir que todas as medidas necessárias sejam tomadas. Portanto, peço-lhes gentilmente que me informem se a configuração do firewall é necessária ou se as configurações padrão fornecidas pelo Traefik.io são suficientes.

Agradeço antecipadamente pela atenção e espero ansiosamente por sua resposta.

Atenciosamente, Edivaldo, Victor

Hello @edivaldovictor Victor

If Traefik.io does provide some firewall settings/filtering then it should be sufficient, but you need to check this in detail.

In general, the choice of a firewall depends on the Droplet configuration, apps running, server purpose, etc.

However, if you want some additional protection on top of what is already provided you can take advantage of our Cloud Firewalls.

DigitalOcean Cloud Firewalls is a network-based, stateful firewall service for Droplets provided at no additional cost. Cloud firewalls block all traffic that isn’t expressly permitted by a rule.
