Technology advances [such as cloud computing, VPNs, BYOD, and social media] are exposing internal networks to a constantly evolving threat landscape, and leading to constant evolution of firewall products to mitigate those threats. Modern firewalls do more than simply block unwanted traffic, they provide features such as content filtering, traffic monitoring, intrusion prevention, and virus checking. 

Managing a modern firewall requires a level of vendor-specific security expertise that is difficult for all but the largest IT departments to sustain in-house. The managed firewall service from Integrity360 provides the expertise you need within the framework of an affordable service level agreement.

Your firewall is the first line of defence against malicious threats to your network. The consequences of a breached firewall can be enormous — financial loss, data loss, reputational damage, or compliance issues, and more — yet most IT departments do not have the resources to manage a firewall effectively.

Even after initial implementation and optimisation, a firewall requires constant attention to be truly effective. Its rule set must be constantly updated to enable changing business requirements, and this updating needs to be carried out by experts who will not inadvertently introduce security risk by misconfiguration of the rules.
