Hoboken, New Jersey - (Vocus) August 16, 2013 eMazzanti Technologies, an IT support and network consulting firm, has published an article about why businesses should consider having their computer network firewall managed by an outsourced IT firm. The article is entitled: 4 Reasons to Consider a Managed Firewall.
“As the first line of defense in business network security, a secure firewall is one of the most important pieces of a network’s infrastructure,” commented Jennifer Mazzanti, president, eMazzanti Technologies. “Without it, any hacker or intruder could easily access critical and confidential information”.
With more and more sophisticated threats developing every day, it can be difficult to stay ahead of the curve in keeping a business protected. It takes more than just purchasing a piece of hardware, plugging it in, and calling it good.
“Whether you have a dedicated IT person within your company or not,” says Mazzanti. “There are numerous benefits to having a professionally managed firewall.”
Reason 1: 24/7 Monitoring and Alerting
As is the case with most Managed IT Service offerings, the benefits of having your network monitored 24/7 are countless. This is especially true for your firewall. With a Managed Firewall service, your firewall is continually monitored to ensure that it is online, up to date, and that any alerts are acted on appropriately. This is vital to ensure that network attacks are avoided due to unnecessary downtime or unseen issues.
Reason 2: Team of certified experts
While having a remote team monitoring your firewall is comforting, knowing that the remote services are provided by a team of certified security professionals will allow you to sleep easy. These certified firewall security administrators are trained and certified by security vendors and are experienced in configuring and managing firewalls, keeping them up to date, and troubleshooting issues to create a resolution.
