Managed Firewalls and IPS

Firewall and IPS management

Firewall and IPS management is resource-intensive and requires a high level of expertise to prevent breaches. IT teams are shrinking & workloads increasing but to “set and forget” your firewall or intrusion prevention is not an option.

Bytes' Managed Firewall and Managed IPS services provide businesses with the vital skills and knowledge to fully maximise and manage their existing technology and keep pace with the rising complexity of threats and cyber attacks.

This frees IT from the burden of implementing, monitoring and maintaining their firewall & intrusion prevention so they can concentrate on more strategic security issues.

Why Businesses are Seeking Managed Firewalls and Managed IPS

  • Increased complexity - Increased FW/IPS functionality and rising threats needs more resource to manage.
  • High Breach Costs - Breaches make headline news. Reputations are impacted with a single incident.
  • Lack of Specialist Skills - Specialist skills are difficult & costly to find externally and time-consuming to train internally.
  • Limited IT budget - Investments become redundant or have limited effectiveness if not fully utilised and managed.
  • Rising system ‘noise’ - needs increased event correlation to ensure systems are not compromised or issues may be missed.
  • 24/7 Monitoring a Must - Threats don’t stop at 5pm. IT needs 24/7 vigilance. Investing in 24/7 in-house management is expensive.
