Web-based applications, cloud services, social media, dynamic content and advanced communications tools open doors to productivity, business opportunities and growth – and also to security threats.

These threats come in many forms – botnets, data leaks or breaches, viruses and malware, malicious content, phishing and other scams, browser exploits, and so the list goes on.

Our Firewalls solution offers three security configurations for different business and compliance needs, protecting you from security risks that could result in financial or data loss and the consequences of a damaged reputation. It also ensures your compliance with requirements for data protection.

Secure your network, protect your business

Don’t fall victim to sophisticated security threats

The first line of defence: your firewall

Your firewall is the first barrier against the growing types of cyber-crimes that could threaten your organisation. By screening traffic and enforcing security policies and packet filters at the network perimeter, firewalls prevent network traffic from entering and leaving the organisation. They can also be set up to protect your business from violations of your internal security policies.

Cyberattacks are becoming more pervasive and attackers increasingly audacious. With the consequences of security breaches ranging from considerable financial loss and data theft to personal criminal liability, the state of your firewall is something you can’t afford to ignore.

This is where our Firewalls solution comes in: we have the expertise to set up and maintain your firewall so you can focus on running your business, knowing that your network perimeter is adequately secured.

Protect your business as it grows

As your business grows, so does the threat of IT security breaches.

The causes of these breaches are wide-ranging and not always easy to manage: with so many smartphones, tablets, laptops and other devices now connecting to your network, there’s greater exposure to numerous IT security threats, from hacking and malware to phishing and whaling scams. Inadequate firewalls or vulnerabilities in your firewall policies can also open you up to unauthorised network access and other security breaches.

Adapt your firewall as security needs change

Firewalls alone can’t guarantee security but, together with other security mechanisms, they can offer protection from cybersecurity threats such as malware, hacking, data theft and hostile intrusions.

As your business and security needs change, you’ll be able to adapt and add firewall configurations as needed. Security solutions need to encompass technology, systems, people and processes, and our Firewalls solution is geared to address each of these in line with your corporate risk profile and security requirements. They include options for multi-tenanted or dedicated firewall environments, advanced reporting, compliance management, and application control.

Ongoing firewall services against security threats

Intrusion prevention to safeguard your business

Choose from our range of firewall packages

We offer three firewall management configurations, for different levels of security and compliance, to clients who are on our MPLS network or who have hosted services in our data centre:

  • Bronze: Basic, entry-level security for meeting minimum requirements.
  • Silver: More advanced protection, with full redundancy and application control, and advanced reporting.
  • Gold: This is the highest level of firewall security, incorporating a fully redundant firewall with advanced security capabilities such as intrusion prevention, policy and compliance management, detailed reporting, and even an awareness service that alerts users to potentially risky applications.

You may choose an entry-level solution for virtual machines, or a more comprehensive solution that incorporates advanced reporting, auditing and compliance management, and policy definitions.

Real security for real threats

Cyber-crime is a highly organised, multi-trillion dollar industry. Every day, organisations face thousands of security risks – many of which can potentially cripple your business in no time at all. Financial losses, theft of sensitive company or customer data, reputational and brand damage and even personal criminal liability are just some of the very real risks businesses face on a daily basis. In addition, businesses need to adhere to a strict regulatory, corporate governance and legislative compliance landscape when it comes to protecting their digital environment.

This is why our Firewalls solution is ideal for businesses that operate in the all-digital, always-connected world: it provides real-time, effective protection against the growing threat of cyber-crime and gives your compliance team peace of mind knowing the necessary precautions to meet regulatory requirements have been put in place.

Expert management of your firewall

Network barrier protection made easy

Firewall configuration options for different risk profiles

Not all security needs – or risks – are the same. To be effective, your firewall needs to give adequate protection in line with your organisation’s risk profile. Too much protection could slow down business processes; too little could leave you exposed.

As your firewall security manager, we will then install and manage the firewall in line with your requirements and network security system. You can even choose a different level of firewall security for different areas of your business, depending on what your security needs are for different teams, or what your security compliance policies dictate.

Round-the-clock firewall

A good security strategy addresses the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data and systems.

But security also has to be addressed at process and people levels. With so many requirements, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed when it comes to keeping your business and data assets safe. A firewall is an essential part of your online security, but it requires constant maintenance to ensure it is configured for optimal security and continuous compliance.

With our Firewalls solution, we offer the skills and resources to not only implement and maintain your firewall solution. With this managed firewall service, you can rest assured in the knowledge that we’ll be vigilant about dealing with suspicious activity and countering security attacks around the clock.

Advanced management and configuration

Regardless of the Firewalls management configuration option you select for your organisation, we provide secure, stable releases of firewall operating systems. All our firewalls are configured and managed by industry experts to ensure they function optimally and we offer 24/7 support to help keep your organisation safe from harm.
