Managed Firewall:
Empower a Digital Transformation

What is a Managed Firewall?
IT environments are always evolving. Companies that depend on technology to run face a whole series of threats from all sides. Therefore, a comprehensive security solution is a necessity. Without one, a business is at risk from malicious attacks and bad actors.

A general consumer-grade firewall won’t cut it. Your business needs the improved security that a next-generation firewall brings. Safeguarding your entire IT network, a next-generation firewall works by analyzing the data flowing in and out of your network to recognize threats and keep them locked out. If you want a secure and dependent IT infrastructure, a next-generation firewall is a great start.

Why a Firewall Needs to be Managed

Next-Generation Firewall Features
Intrusion Detection and Prevention: monitors network traffic for malicious activity or policy violations. Once detected, the firewall can block the malicious traffic from ever entering the network and then report it to the network administrator for further analysis and action.

  • Load Balancing: allows distribution of traffic between multiple servers to ensure that they do not get overloaded with requests. It also incorporates failovers, where if a server fails, rerouting the traffic to the secondary server. So, if your company servers get an unusually high amount of traffic, the load balancer can distribute it evenly amongst them. In the case that one server fails, all traffic can be routed to the other server.
  • VPN: encrypts traffic and data to and from your network. Without a VPN, anything you do or send over the Internet can be plucked, viewed, and even rerouted without your knowledge. Using a VPN wraps the data in an encrypted tunnel, so if/when data is intercepted, the data/information is hidden from being viewed (appearing like senseless gibberish) except by the sender and the intended receiver.
  • Web-Filtering: allows your administrators to block risky websites, as well as sites that are known to be major timewasters, like social media and gaming sites. Spam filtering goes even further by blocking spam emails from getting through your network and hitting your inbox (one of the most common ways that malware infects a computer).
  • Application Control: monitors the resource usage and typical behaviors of your organization’s applications. After it understands these applications, it optimizes caching behaviors, loadouts, and quality of service (QoS). This feature will also flag irregularities in application use, adding an additional security layer.

Effective protection is an absolute necessity in today’s world of rapidly growing cyber threats. To protect your business assets a secure, reliable network infrastructure is a must.

You can’t afford to choose between adequate security and improved network performance. Your business needs both and with our Managed Firewall service that’s exactly what you get.
