Firewall Management

Firewall Management

Managed firewall service stops unauthorized access to business networks and can include advanced threat protection, intrusion detection/intrusion prevention, firewall administration, log monitoring, and response to security incidents. The service can also include using intelligence from global security research to block traffic from IP addresses of known threats.

Why It Matters to your customers

Connecting to the internet creates a vulnerability for a business network. Without a firewall, there is little to stop an unauthorized user or outside network from accessing a computer or system. Firewalls can halt attacks before they damage a business’ network, disrupt production, and result in costly and reputation-damaging data breaches. Some industries, including healthcare and finance, have specific requirements to meet regarding use of a firewall as a part of their overall IT security. Firewalls also address the issue of securely connecting remote workers to a business network.

Why Firewall Management is an Opportunity

Businesses may be relying on built-in firewalls on their computers, but they may actually require enterprise-grade firewalls to protect their businesses. Performing security assessments can reveal which security solutions they are currently using and which of your clients and prospects may need upgrades. Providing managed firewall services alleviates in-house IT staff from having to monitor firewalls and make sure they are working and updated with patches and new definitions.

Managed firewall solutions for MSPs include centralized control so you can deploy them across multiple clients, allowing you to maximize revenue with a single solution. They also feature easy configuration and setup templates, and some include professional services to monitor firewalls and analyze activity.

Bundle managed firewall with other managed security solutions such as managed antivirus and patch management  to provide your clients with a total solution—and more recurring revenue for your business.
