Managed Firewall

As the entry point to internal networks, firewalls need to provide protection from unauthorised access and mitigate the risk associated with intrusion, data loss and system integrity whilst still providing the ability to communicate and collaborate. As attacks evolve to evade the protection of traditional firewalls, businesses need security solutions that safely enable business applications.

Redcentric’s managed firewall services are the first line of defence against malicious attacks; providing advanced application level security for networking, threat prevention and management whilst delivering predictable performance.

Redcentric's managed firewall services are designed to address the changing nature of the threat landscape, rules are set and traffic is classified by application, source and type to identify threats. Rules are then automatically applied to prevent unauthorised network access providing protection against advanced persistent threats (APT's), automated and targeted attacks.
