With hundreds of firewalls under management world-wide, the Security Team at Sohonet has the experience and resources to configure, maintain and monitor your network.
Whether it is ensuring that every device has the latest patches and updates to deploying hot-spares, we cover the basics as well as the tricky bits: Namely, managing inbound and outbound traffic rules, VLAN and subnet configurations and integrated Threat Detection and Intrusion Prevention software.
Coupled with the 24/7/365 monitoring and support of your Sohonet Media Network connection and you have an unbeatable combination for performance and security.
Complex networks can be, uh, complex to manage
While individual segments of a network may be relatively simple to understand, based on local usage, when taken as part of a whole, changes can have unexpected impacts elsewhere.
Your team needs to sleep
Even when your end users are not on site, the network continues to do some heavy lifting: File Transfer, Rendering, Transcoding, Compression. So, who’s watching out for the network in the middle of the night?
There’s no such thing as ‘set it and forget it’ when it comes to network security
Viruses, malware, trojan horses, ransomware–these continue to evolve. Your equipment vendor will work to keep up with patches and updates, but who will evaluate these changes, and deploy them in the right combination, with appropriate timing and urgency?
Work still needs to get done
The perfectly secure network exists–it just doesn’t have any users. When your team is driving to a deadline and needs a port opened, a firewall rule changed, the success of the project may well depend on it.
With over 450 customer sites on our network, our team manages thousands upon thousands of devices around the world. And we’ve been doing it for more than 20 years for some of the most demanding customers (yes, we’re looking at you). We specialize in developing solutions tailored to your needs and challenges, but with the knowledge gained from two decades specializing in Media and Entertainment.
Isn’t it time you took a look at what we can do for your security team?
When you sign up for Sohonet’s Managed Firewall service, we will consult with you select and configure the appropriate devices and then take on the work of monitoring, reporting and managing your firewalls, alongside your Sohonet Media Network connection. This combination is unbeatable for efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
You can play as active or passive a role in this process as you wish–we will take our lead from you and ensure that your needs are anticipated and then met.
As with all Sohonet services, we have tailored our Managed Firewall services to suit a wide range of company needs and sizes. We leverage deep industry experience and our relationships with our key vendors — Fortinet, Juniper and Palo Alto — to ensure that our offerings remain viable for your application throughout the life of the service. And with the flexibility for short- or long-term contracts, there’s just no need to skimp on security.
We use a carefully-curated selection of equipment from leading vendors to tailor a solution for you.
Enjoy the peace-of-mind offered by a 24/7 Global Support Team that’s always looking out for you.
We aren’t wizards, but our knowledge and contacts within the security industry are put to use every day, refining policies, testing and monitoring for anomalies and deploying solutions.
The best security device for the job, coupled with the right configurations, means that you won’t have to trade network performance for the effectiveness of your security. We work with you to ensure that both are optimized together.
Add or upgrade devices as you need them, and change configurations as your security needs evolve.
With short- and long-term service available, you can arrange for a fully managed firewall on your network for the cost of a latte every day. (One of those extra-large ones, admittedly, but still.)
All of our Managed Firewall services include 24/7 hardware and software support, management of updates and patches, self-service firewall rule changes (via our customer Hub), and monitoring.
Depending on the level of service required, your firewall service can include Universal Threat Management (UTM), Intrusion Detection or Intrusion Prevention, advanced analytics, VPN, network anti-virus, URL or data-filtering, or user-level visibility when integrated with directory services.
