Managed Firewall

Safeguard your networks and systems from cyber threats

Protect your business with a managed firewall service

Savvy enterprises have long recognised that the data they hold and the applications they rely on forms the life blood of their digital and commercial operations. Failure to proactively maintain the security, integrity and availability of this essential data can threaten the very existence of any organisation.

A firewall is the front line of defence against cyberattacks, yet maintaining perimeter security has become a major challenge and firewalls themselves can become an unwitting security risk if not managed effectively.

Managed Firewall explained

  • Firewalls are a critical security layer that virtually all businesses require, but maintaining perimeter security against an ever changing threat landscape has become a major challenge for many organisations. Firewalls, if not well managed, can easily become an unwitting security risk.

  • A managed firewall removes the management overhead of a firewall, plugging a vital security gap without the need to engage costly in-house IT resource.

    The Colt managed firewall service is fully managed by us, including its design, installation, configuration, as well as the day-to-day maintenance of hardware and software components. Customers also benefit from expert support from proficient cyber security professionals, as well as 24/7 proactive network monitoring.
