FWaaS stands for “Firewall-as-a-Service.” Mid-Rivers Communications can provide FWaaS to your business to keep your network secure. Depending on the needs and size of your organization, our solutions are backed by next-generation firewall appliances. FWaaS includes all the technology required to provide remote firewall management for your business. With FWaaS, threats can be blocked and quickly mitigated.
FWaaS truly opens the door for organizations of all sizes to incorporate a peace-of-mind solution with no up front cost or investment. FWaaS combines the firewall appliance with a proactive security management team working for you, plus all related support and services packaged into a single bundle with a monthly subscription price.
Why attempt to build or recruit in-house talent from scratch when you can utilize an existing security operations center? There is currently a severe shortage of trained information security professionals. Building in-house talent will take a large amount of time and effort, and you may still come up short on the skills you need.
The shortage of trained security professionals also leads to high costs. With FWaaS, you can often receive around-the clock security monitoring for less than the cost of staffing one shift in-house.
Instead of a large up front capital expenditure, FWaaS is an operational cost spread over the life of the subscription. This model can provide more flexibility when budgeting IT expenditures.
Mid-Rivers' FWaaS professionals have insight into a wide cross-section of clients and industries. This perspective allows us to gain a large security knowledge base, which helps us respond to security threats across our entire customer base.
In addition to the security intelligence gained by working with diverse clients, our security monitoring service providers also have deployment and operational experience in a wide range of organizations. This experience can lead to well thought out processes to optimize the security monitoring service.
The combination of trained professionals and established processes can lead to actionable security and compliance information in a relatively short period of time. The return on an in-house SIEM project depends greatly on your level of in-house expertise and resource commitment.
By off-loading some of the more tedious aspects of security monitoring to Mid-Rivers Communications, your IT and security staff can spend more time on value-added activities that align with the organization’s primary goals.
Data security is becoming a competitive advantage in many industries. Companies that can be trusted with financial data and personal information will be better able to attract and retain customers and partners. Managed security monitoring allows resource-focused organizations to keep a level playing field with larger enterprises.
The hard work doesn’t end after installation. As your organization changes and grows, your security monitoring solution needs to adapt. The threat landscape is also evolving constantly. A subscription-based service often provides more flexibility than a perpetually licensed software product.
You have better things to do than monitor thousands of event logs and worry about your network security 24x7x365. When done right, the managed security monitoring provider becomes an extension of your own team. With Mid-Rivers Communications taking care of your security, you have one less thing to worry about.
Because our focused and experienced staff has access to our online monitoring tool, the task of reporting and maintenance is streamlined. In addition, standard level managed service provides access to our team of highly experienced SonicWALL certified engineers who can assist with any network security threats found from using the ongoing network monitoring system. Our FWaaS customers rest assured knowing that should an incident occur, we will be on top of it.
The failure rate of SonicWALL products is exceedingly low, but it happens. Once we have determined that a problem is related to the physical appliance, we will configure a replacement exactly to your specifications and ship it out for overnight weekday delivery. While this is a rare occurrence, know that you can purchase with 100% confidence in SonicWALL, guaranteed.
There is no need to go searching for firmware updates that might be “minor” but still imperative for the most efficient performance of your network security system. Often, we know about pending firmware updates well before their release. Updates are automatically deployed with our Standard level of managed service, usually without any disruption at all.
Our engineers have performed configuration, troubleshooting and support for hundreds of SonicWALL security appliances, proving that our team of SonicWALL certified engineers has the ability to understand your changing business needs. We interact with our customers to help evaluate the best ways to address upcoming (non-emergency) changes, and we will answer requests efficiently to 100% satisfaction.
Despite your best efforts, there could be security incidents and outages. If that should happen, our emergency phone line is always open and accessible to our FWaaS customers. One of our expert SonicWALL engineers will answer your call and will calmly help you through any network security emergency.
In case you haven’t heard, signature-based endpoint security is essentially useless. Malware and unwanted applications have become increasingly dynamic, resulting in 97% of malware being unique to a specific endpoint. Mid- Rivers’ Managed Malware Prevention service utilizes revolutionary technology to provide real time protection against zero-days, and other advanced threats.
Mid-Rivers is now offering a new Endpoint Protection application called CylancePROTECT. Cylance is a robust and powerful application that blocks virus and malware threats before they take hold. Rather than relying on particular virus definitions, Cylance targets behavioral patterns of threatening applications. Cylance predicts cyber-attacks and blocks them on the endpoint in real time before they ever execute. It leverages the power of machines, not human, to dissect the malware’s DNA and uses artificial intelligence to determines if the code is safe to run.
With threats on the rise and the amount of security professionals being low, we have developed a strategic relationship with an MSSP named Infogressive (I4G) based out of Lincoln, NE. I4G was founded on a single purpose: Information Security. They reduce risk by creating defense-in-depth networks help implement best practices. With the collaboration between HPN and I4G security engineers, we believe have found the best solution for our customers to be secure from all threats to their networks.
Getting hit with ransomware could have an enormous impact on your business. Detection isn’t good enough, you need to actively prevent it in the first place. Let our team partner with yours to ensure that ransomware threats become a thing of the past.
Our security team has analyzed hundreds of millions of files to date, with that number growing rapidly every day. We are trained to identify indicators of compromise and can assist in further investigation if necessary.
Our Managed Malware Prevention service integrates with the rest of our Managed Security Services, giving you a defense-in-depth security strategy.
The days of your anti-virus product using up all your memory are long gone. Our technology uses significantly less memory and CPU compared to traditional solutions, allowing your users to stay productive while being secure.
As your business grows, so will your number of devices. All it takes is a single weak link for a hacker to get in. We make sure that there are no gaps on your endpoints, whether you’re a small business or a global enterprise.
It’s a question we hear often, “What are the benefits of going managed vs. just buying the technology?” There are quite a few. Bringing new software into an environment always ends up being more complicated than expected. Infogressive has deployed this technology to thousands of endpoints and our expertise ensures that the technology is working quickly and your employees aren’t overwhelmed. Our security team receives threat intelligence from sources all over the world, giving you a significant advantage against hackers. We live and breathe malware analysis so you don’t have to.
