Managed Firewall

Get the best managed firewall for your network and cloud environments

Cybersecurity is a continuous battle

Cybersecurity is a continuous battle, where criminals are constantly developing new ways to compromise or evade detection by security systems. In a business world that’s becoming more digitally complex, the risk associated with intrusion, data loss and system integrity is increasingly high.

Attackers constantly scan company networks from the outside, looking for ways to infiltrate into your systems and damage or steal your data. Scanning your network traffic to spot them and stop them is a crucial cybersecurity measure.

Understanding network security is complicated and protecting against a cyberattack is hard to do whilst juggling all the other issues involved in running a business. Our Managed Firewall Service gives you comprehensive protection against cyberattacks, without the need to manage it internally.

The cost of a security breach to an SME can cause significant disruption to that business and the onward supply chain. Research by the National Cyber Security Centre found that almost half (43%) of British SMEs admit to having no business continuity, disaster recovery or crisis management plans in place, despite almost the same number of UK businesses (46%) suffering at least one cyber security breach or attack.

To counter modern threats, we use next generation firewall technology that conducts deep level packet inspection to detect even the most sophisticated attacks. Its analysis detects threats within data and files by understanding what is in the network packets as they travel into your network.

You need protection and security for your business at the perimeter to ensure that your entire IT system runs smoothly, day in, day out. A fully managed firewall from Syscomm provides all of this and more, at a price that’s realistic and affordable.

Managed Firewall Security Services - Why You Need Them

The increase in the number of dispersed networks, remote workforces, BYOD, the internet of things (IoT), and ongoing Cloud adoption bring new security challenges to today’s businesses.

In a recent survey, almost half of respondents stated that managing complex networks is their number-one challenge.

>> Enterprise Wireless Network Solutions

Both site-to-site and site-to-cloud represent major security challenges.

Rapid network expansion leads to an increasing number of additional security concerns.

Today, network firewalls must do more than just secure your network. They must also ensure you have uninterrupted network availability and robust access to cloud-hosted applications.

Syscomm offers a family of physical, virtual, and cloud-based appliances that protect and enhance your dispersed network infrastructure.

Scalable centralised management and an advanced security analytics platform help you reduce administrative overhead while defining and enforcing granular policies across your entire WAN.

Common firewall management failures

Our security analysts often encounter serious security risks in the field related to improper firewall configuration and management. Here are a few of the issues we have found over the years:

Multiple firewalls

Even a single firewall requires regular maintenance and daily monitoring: you need to review rule sets, patch firmware, and update configuration--this work is multiplied with each unique firewall placed within an environment. When there are multiple firewalls and staffing is either insufficient or lack the critical skills required to maintain them, serious security issues can be overlooked, resulting in the loss or compromise of critical data.

No firewall auditing

Firewall auditing, where a company regularly checks and audits their firewall rules is often left undone. One benefit of choosing Syscomm to provide your Managed Firewall service is that we perform regular firewall audits as a primary element of our core services.

Misunderstanding how firewalls work

There are concepts in firewall management that not all IT personnel are familiar with. For example, not securing the 'demilitarized zone' (DMZ) leaves the network exposed and vulnerable to external hacking activity.

Inexperience and lack of oversight

IT personnel are often expected to just ‘make things work’. There is tremendous pressure to keep systems up and running for day-to-day business operation, which can result in careless or risky configurations.

Firewall not PCI DSS compliant

Be sure to look for a service provider that is PCI compliant because if they are not, your business may be considered non-compliant.

Firewall security gaps are the rule

Our security analysts' experiences in the field reveal that firewall misconfigurations and security gaps are the rule, rather than the exception.
