Drawing on proven expertise and over a decade of network security management experience, we are well positioned to provide your business with a quality and reliable Managed Network Security solution, provided by our team of fully qualified and accredited network engineers.
Our Managed Network Security service is based on Fortinet’s award-winning range of Unified Threat Management (UTM) devices. UTM devices offer advanced network protection by integrating multiple security layers into a single platform; this integrated approach simplifies network infrastructure and reduces administration costs.
Fortinet is the one and only provider of ICSA, EAL4+ & NSS* certified UTM solutions that are powered by a custom designed ASIC chip for real-time content processing and network protection.
FortiGate UTM firewalls combine multiple layers of security into a single platform and offer complete protection from Internet threats without degrading network performance. With integrated Deep Packet Inspection Firewalling and secure VPN capabilities, a FortiGate device replaces the need to invest in separate network security appliances, allowing you to benefit from a more simplistic, yet effective network infrastructure.
- * ICSA - International Computer Security Association, EAL4+ - Evaluation Assurance Level, NSS - Network Security Services
For a simple monthly fee we will provide you with a fully configured and licensed FortiGate Unified Threat Management security solution that we will manage and maintain for you remotely.
Should your network security requirements change during the course of the leasing agreement then we will swap-out your existing FortiGate device for a more suitable FortiGate platform, thereby guaranteeing that your business benefits from the best level of network protection at all times.**
Our leasing options are particularly suited to businesses that anticipate rapid network growth and businesses that prefer to spread the usual set-up costs over the course of a fixed term.
- ** If you choose to upgrade your FortiGate firewall during the leasing period then a new leasing agreement will need to be signed, this will supersede the existing leasing agreement. The duration of the new leasing agreement must exceed the time remaining on your existing agreement and have a minimum 12 month term.
Network Activity Reports
As a managed network security customer your FortiGate firewall will be connected to our centralised reporting platform. This reporting platform allows us to monitor the performance of your device and track the traffic passing through it. The captured data is then populated into a range of charts and presented to you on a monthly basis.
The monthly Internet activity report provides analysis on a wide range of network activities and can provide you with the necessary knowledge to identify and remedy network issues.
Unified Threat Management
Our managed network security solutions are based on Fortinet's range of Unified Threat Management firewall platforms. These unified security firewalls are the next generation in network security and remove the need for multiple network security devices.
If you are new to the unified threat management concept then the following information will help to explain why this platform is the fastest growing segment within the managed network security marketplace.
The Advanced Anti-virus technology uses both signature and heuristic detection engines to provide multi-layered, real-time firewall protection against a multitude of attacks at the desktop and the network gateway.
The FortiGuard Anti-spam Service provides automatic updates to reduce the amount of "obvious spam" at the network perimeter. To increase detection rates, the FortiGuard Anti-spam Subscription Service deploys "dual scan" technology to quickly identify, tag, or block obvious spam messages.
The FortiGuard Web Content Filtering Service regulates and provides valuable insight into all Web activities allowing customers to meet new Government Regulations, HR Policies & Corporate Internet Usage Policies.
The FortiGuard Intrusion Prevention Service (IPS) arms you with the latest defences against stealthy malicious and suspicious network activity.
With advanced VPN capabilities our managed FortiGate service enables organisations to easily expand the availability of their network to remote sites and teleworkers at minimal cost.
All FortiGate devices support SSL VPN which means that remote workers can securely access network resources whilst on the move via any web browsers on any device in any location. You don't need to install and manage expensive VPN clients on each piece of equipment, instead the end-user simply uses their web browser to navigate to a secure web page and log-in using approved access credentials. Once authentication has been processed the end-user has access via the secure site to their required network resources.
PCI DSS standards provide broad requirements for businesses with regard to protecting customer card data from internet based security threats We can carefully configure and manage your FortiGate UTM device enabling you to secure customer transactions transmitted over the Internet using the latest data encryption technologies. Our remote management and monitoring service will also
provide detailed Internet activity reports to aid network forensics.
