Our Managed Next-Generation Firewall service is designed to help you reduce the time, cost and resources required to monitor and maintain firewall infrastructure day to day.
It’s no longer enough to leave your security to manage itself. Security policies and configurations on your firewall devices must be updated to ensure appropriate access controls are kept in line with changing business environments. Network firewall traffic must be monitored continuously to identify and respond to threats before damage can be done.
A Managed Firewall mitigates the need to engage in costly in-house IT resources. We have a dedicated team of vendor trained and security-focused individuals who configure, monitor, and ensure that the firewalls are configured correctly. As a cyber security company, we also receive intelligence and stay up to date with new and emerging threats so that we can adjust and put necessary changes in place which is all part of our proactive managed firewall service.
A firewall management service is designed to reduce cost and risk compared to self-managing your organization’s firewall.
Firewalls are complex pieces of equipment and your first line of defense. Firewalls can often do much more to protect if configured correctly and make use of all features you are entitled to.
However, it takes considerable resources and skills to do this properly and many businesses don’t have those resources and more importantly the time.
