Why do you need a firewall?

A firewall is vital in today’s cyberthreat environment, as it offers the most effective way of securing the perimeter of your business network, providing robust protection. All network traffic passing through the firewall is analysed and checked against complex parameters, to identify any cybersecurity risks, which could seriously damage your business, such as viruses and ransomware attacks.

FWaaS is a firewall solution delivered as a cloud-based service that provides hyperscale, next-generation firewall (NGFW) capabilities that include web filtering, advanced threat protection (ATP), an intrusion prevention system (IPS) and more. In many ways, FWaaS is much like a hardware firewall that you would have on-site. However, it comes with distinct advantages, such as the flexibility to be scaled up or down, almost instantaneously, if needed. 

Why do you need UTM?

Prodec’s FWaaS solution includes Fortinet’s Fortigate UTM technology, which supplies multiple layers of protection in a single platform. The service therefore provides a traditional firewall platform, delivering network-level security and deep-packet inspection, and includes anti-spam, anti-virus, application control and web content filtering. This ensures that your business is not only protected from inbound cyberthreats, but also makes sure that your users are using the Internet safely and not inadvertently importing threats into your network.
