The overarching benefit of a Managed Firewall is the replacement of an in-house solution with a dedicated remote centralised service. This outsourced and cost-effective method of ensuring an agreed and purpose-designed level of permanently monitored online security allows businesses to focus all in-house staffing on core objectives.
Benefits of a centralised Managed Firewall include:
- Reduced costs
- Automated software updates
- 24/7 proactive security alerts
- Maintenance & firmware updates
- Reporting (service users typically benefit from weekly or monthly reports – reports serve to outline the nature and origin of all security threats aimed at the business, as well as detailing the action taken to prevent unauthorised access to the business network)
