Colt Router-based Firewall is a managed service that delivers firewall functionality from an existing Colt managed IP router, providing a cost-effective perimeter security solution for smaller sites.
A router-based firewall provides stateful packet filtering by IP address and port number, protecting against IP address spoofing and screening the protected networks. Basic logging is supported as well as configuration of a demilitarised zone (DMZ), where customer-facing servers traditionally reside. Router-based Firewall is a fully managed service and includes the following:
- Hardware break/fix
- Software updates
- Additions and changes
- Security event response
- Log file retention
- Save costs: enable business-grade security at small/branch sites without the need for investment in additional hardware.
- Reduce the complexity of your small/branch site security solutions
- Reduce burden on in-house IT skills: the Router-based Firewall service is fully-managed by Colt, leaving your in-house resource free to focus on your larger sites or other requirements.
