Managed firewall

Protecting the enterprise with a managed firewall.

As threats to enterprise security continue to proliferate, more organizations are considering the benefits of a managed firewall service.

An enterprise firewall provides critical protection against a variety of threats. By monitoring network traffic, a firewall can help to block external threats like hackers, cyber criminals and malware, as well as internal threats like malicious insiders and inadvertent data leaks. Firewalls can also block users from visiting malicious or unauthorized, nonbusiness-related websites. And firewalls can provide administrators with centralized visibility over traffic entering and leaving the network.

For IT teams that are managing multiple priorities with limited resources, managing firewall security effectively can be a challenge. Ensuring that enterprise firewalls are correctly configured, continually monitored and upgraded when necessary is often a time-consuming chore that may end up on the back burner as other high-profile security tasks take priority.

A managed firewall service can help to better protect the enterprise by offloading these routine-but-critical tasks to a team of highly qualified firewall specialists.
