Firewall as a Service

Proactive Network Defence

Elevate security with Firewall as a Service.

An instantly scalable cloud-based firewall, securely filtering your network traffic.

Unmatched Network Security

Flexible security solutions.

As you almost certainly know, a firewall is a security device that monitors incoming and outgoing network traffic. Its role is to decide whether to allow or block specific network traffic, based on a defined set of security rules.  Traditionally firewalls have been purchased as a bundle of hardware and software, and placed onsite. However, within our core group of managed cyber security services there is another option, Firewall as a Service (FWaaS).

Our FWaaS offers a more flexible security solution, allowing businesses to simplify IT infrastructure and reduce costs. It can scale near instantaneously, to match network traffic, and features can be switched on or off, as required. It provides automatically updated firewall security capabilities such as web filtering, advanced threat protection, intrusion prevention, and Domain Name System security. And because it is offered as a service, you only pay for what you need, when you need it.
