It has never been more important to protect your business from Hackers, Viruses and Malware.

Every day we see news reports of serious security breaches and we often get contacted by businesses for help after they have been cyber attacked and by then the damage has been done.

Next Generation Firewalls

Traditional firewalls are standard for majority of organisations. However, controlling traffic flow at entry and exit is no longer enough to be protected.

Next Generation Firewalls (NGF) can do a lot more than traditional firewalls to deal with emerging cyber threats.

NGF features include,

Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
Real-time network protection from range of network threats. This is done by analysing threat signatures, traffic behaviour, etc.

Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN)
Ability to choose transport (i.e when connected to multiple ISPs) based on latency and bandwidth measurements. Watching a 4K video will require more bandwidth and a Voice over IP (VOIP) call requires low latency. The firewall is able to swap transports automatically to provide the best user experience.

Virtual Private Network (VPN) using multiple transport technologies
Secure site-to-site and client-to-site connections.

Application Visibility and Control
Control application access or application modules based on user roles.

Web filter
Ability to filter content based on organisation policies.

Advanced Threat Protection
Network traffic is checked against a threat database that is being constantly updated.

Endpoint Protection

Having a firewall at the permitter is not enough to be protected. Laptops, tablets, mobile phones and other devices create attack paths.

Online threats like viruses and malware are blocked when you have Endpoint Protection. Modern endpoint products use advanced machine learning, file reputation analysis, behaviour monitoring, etc to block threats.

Tech Creations use and recommend Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls and Symantec Endpoint Protection as part of our cyber crime protection strategy.
