This frees IT from the burden of implementing, monitoring and maintaining their firewall & intrusion prevention so they can concentrate on more strategic security issues.
Managed Firewall & IPS Overview
Bytes Managed Firewalls ensure the optimal performance of your network infrastructure with 24/7 firewall administration, maintenance, rulebase management, backup and recovery.
IPS is a de facto security defence - however false positives and the need for daily signatures updates are real issues hampering its efficiency. Bytes Managed IPS addresses this issue and means your intrusion prevention is always up to date.
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. Breach penalties are rising due to GDPR
Lack of Specialist Skills - Specialist skills are difficult & costly to find externally and time-consuming to train internally
Need to Fully Use Limited IT budget - Investments become redundant or have limited effectiveness if not fully utilised and managed
Internal Task Overload - Small IT teams with increasing workloads find growing FW/IPS functionality difficult to manage
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 24/7 in in-house management is expensive
Infrastructure monitored, managed and maintained around the clock.
