The Importance of Properly Managed Firewalls
A network's perimeter is only as strong as the weakest control policy. Your team could have the best Network Security Appliance in the business, only to discover that lack of expertise and support have left major gaps in your defenses. Scarlett Cybersecurity's specialized network engineers work around the clock to ensure that your Firewalls, IDS/IPS, and other network security appliances are properly maintained and configured. We work with a wide range of product lines and employ Subject Matter Experts on all major network security product vendors.
What's Included with Managed Network Security?
Managed Network Security with Scarlett Cybersecurity includes the following components:
Firewall and Network Security Appliance Support:
While your organization's firewall or network security appliance likely includes vendor support, our team takes managed services to a whole new level. We provide extensive 24/7/365 services focused on properly utilizing the network security to stop threats before they enter the environment. Network segmentation and advanced monitoring rules allow our team to monitor for internal threats as well, achieving a holistic network defense.
Proper firewall and network security configuration is key to a healthy environment. By incorporating Scarlett Cybersecurity's comprehensive rulesets, your network has the opportunity to become significantly less exposed. Without the right settings, a firewall is simply a minor speedbump for dedicated attackers.
Optimizations and Patching:
Patching network security appliances can be a critically important undertaking that rarely gets completed by conventional IT staff. Exploits and Vulnerabilities associated with network security devices can render these expensive pieces of hardware useless. With managed patching services, your perimeter will be updated and protected.
