Protect your enterprise from advanced cyber threats with Firewall as a Service from Prodec Networks.
Ensuring that your business is protected from online threats is essential, especially at a time when your workforce may be ever more widely dispersed, increasing the need for strong cyber security. Prodec Networks’ firewall as a service (FWaaS) therefore provides a straightforward, reliable, fully managed solution that will secure your organisation’s network perimeter and give you complete peace of mind.
Using Fortinet’s Fortigate next-generation firewall security and unified threat management (UTM) platform, Prodec’s FWaaS offers industry-leading threat protection, backed up by Prodec’s own UK-based, enterprise-grade network and outstanding technical support services.
Why do you need a firewall?
A firewall is vital in today’s cyber-threat environment, as it offers the most effective way of securing the perimeter of your business network, providing robust protection. All network traffic passing through the firewall is analysed and checked against complex parameters, to identify any cyber security risks, which could seriously damage your business, such as viruses and ransomware.
FWaaS is a firewall solution delivered as a cloud-based service that provides hyperscale, next-generation firewall (NGFW) capabilities that include web filtering, advanced threat protection (ATP), intrusion prevention system (IPS), and more. In many ways, FWaaS is much like a hardware firewall that you would have on-premises. However, it comes with distinct advantages, such as the ability to scale nearly instantaneously to suit an expanding network.
Why do you need UTM?
Prodec’s FWaaS solution includes Fortinet’s Fortigate UTM technology, which supplies multiple layers of protection in a single platform. The service therefore provides a traditional firewall platform, delivering network-level security and deep-packet inspection, and includes anti-spam, anti-virus, application control and web content filtering. This ensures that your business is not only protected from inbound cyber threats, but also makes sure that your users are using the Internet safely and not inadvertently importing threats into your network.
