Managed Firewall

With the ever growing threat to your business from hackers and worms, ensuring the integrity of your data is now more important than ever.

ULCC's Managed Firewall Service can ease the threat of these attacks and provide comprehensive protection to your organisations network and other hosted assets.

The necessary skills to manage firewall services can be expensive for individual organisations to maintain. This can lead to situations where an organisation does not have the skills at all and its internal systems become vulnerable to external attacks. ULCC has worked with many such organisations over the years to facilitate Internet connectivity whilst providing cost effective managed solutions to reduce the external threats.

This managed firewall service is based upon the extensive Fortinet range, so a solution can be specified to meet all needs. Once installed the service is updated regularly to counter evolving threats and configuration changes can be implemented to meet the organisations' continuing needs. These activities are included in the fixed annual fee.

With its layered structure of rules and settings it is easy to implement institution-wide restrictions and allow exceptions on a group or even user base.

All updates for IPS and Antivirus setting are pro-actively pushed to the device to ensure it is able to handle the latest security threats. Please see below for a list of features.
