Managed Firewalls and Managed IPS

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.


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.

Why Businesses are Seeking Managed Firewalls and Managed IPS

Increased complexity - Increased FW/IPS functionality and rising threats needs more resource to manage

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
