Firewall management services (also known as MSSPs, or Managed Security Service Providers), are third-party providers that manage and maintain your firewall infrastructure. They operate, administer, monitor, and maintain the infrastructure. Firewall management companies also help establish, maintain, and monitor firewall rules.

A managed firewall from Secur mitigates this headache, and plugs a vital security gap, without the need to engage costly in-house IT resource. Secur Firewall service is fully managed by us, including its design, installation, configuration, and day-to-day maintenance of hardware and software components as well as expert support from our proficient cyber security professionals, and 24/7 proactive network monitoring.

Our range of managed firewall services is designed to meet all of your needs: from protecting the Internet Access of a single office, to protecting several sites within your Secur IP VPN network. Our firewall solutions make use of different technologies to meet your needs to balance performance against cost, including network-based virtual firewalls for small sites, or dedicated hardware for more complex and demanding environments.

What are managed firewall services?

A managed firewall are the services around firewalls that ensure that firewalls have clear and well-maintained firewall policy rules, firewalls are proactively patched and updated when needed, and that there is proactive monitoring and auditing.

What does a firewall management company do?

Firewalls are managed by MSSPs. By using a managed firewall service, organizations get intrusion protection and rapid response to any security incidents.

What are firewall service providers and what do they do?

Firewall service providers can provide firewalls as a cloud service (FWaaS). Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) moves firewall functionality to the cloud instead of the traditional network perimeter. This allows firewalls to be deployed anywhere in the world and support geographically dispersed remote workforces.

How do MSSPs and managed firewall services relate to network firewall security management?

MSSPs handle network policy security management in-house. It is the responsibility of the MSSPs to institute, maintain, and modify firewall rules and manage the entire change management process end-to-end. MSSPs can use network security management solutions to manage multiple clients and accelerate visibility, automation, compliance monitoring, and change management.

Cleanup, recertify, and optimize security policies

Secur Firewall Analyzer simplifies daily network operations by automatically generating an interactive, self-updating topology map. Using the map, MSSPs gain instant visibility into the impact of security policies on network traffic, and can quickly troubleshoot connectivity issues, plan changes, and perform “what-if” traffic queries.

 

 

 

Change management processes are slow. Processing a single change in a complex enterprise environment, which often has hundreds of changes each month, can take days, or even weeks. With Secur’s automated security policy management, MSSPs can process security policy changes in minutes, avoiding guesswork, and manual errors, while reducing risk and enforcing compliance. Using intelligent, highly customizable workflows, Secur automates the entire security policy change process. Keeping up with the numerous regulations that are found across geographies and industries can be extremely time consuming and complex. Secur automatically generates pre-populated, audit-ready compliance reports for all the leading industry regulations, including SOX, BASEL II, GLBA, PCI DSS, GDPR, ISO 27001, and internal corporate policies — which helps reduce audit preparation efforts and costs.

 

 

Secur continuously analyzes existing network security policies and provides actionable recommendations to help cleanup and reduce risk. Secur can uncover unused, obsolete, or duplicate rules, initiate a recertification process for expired rules, provide recommendations on how to consolidate or reorder rules for better performance, and tightens overly permissive rules.
