Firewalls are an essential part of your layered security plan, for all kinds of businesses. We take perimeter maintenance and continuously adapt it to the dynamic threat landscape that your organisation may experience.
The term ‘firewall’ is often used interchangeably with ‘router’, but these are two very different things. The router is the hardware you will be familiar with in your home, connecting your home network to the internet. Most home routers will have a basic firewall installed as part of the service but will not have the advanced features of a business-class firewall.
Firewalls should not be plug-and-play devices, once installed we will monitor the data to ensure traffic is being blocked and passed correctly with regular checks to ensure the device is running the most up-to-date software.
As part of the management, we will reconfigure rules and policies as required to ensure the least amount of access is granted without affecting services. A wrongly configured firewall will work but, in the background, it may also be allowing others access to your network.
Our engineers will ensure any changes made to the firewall are not going to have an impact on the security of your business, and logs will be checked on a regular basis to ensure there are no anomalies in the traffic passing through the firewall.
When we are managing your firewall architecture, it includes design, monitoring, and maintenance, so you’ll always have a solid infrastructure and an expert team of engineers, proactively managing it around the clock. We will work with you to do this, so you will always have ultimate control and the final say in any of your managed security matters.
