Protecting your business with firewalls is absolutely necessary to ensure your cybersecurity, but it’s also time-consuming and can be tedious. The compliance requirements alone can consume your IT departments time and energy, leaving them little time to work on other tasks. Luckily, outsourcing your firewall management is not only possible, but it’s highly beneficial. While there are many ways outsourcing can help, we’d like to share a few of our favorite.
24/7 Protection & Monitoring
If you were to hire IT personnel to manage the security of your network around the clock, it would be extremely costly, but with outsourced management, it becomes more viable. Not only will you have access to the full-time monitoring and protection you need, but a reputable service will have the skill and tools are necessary to identify and address threats before they become problems.
Service disruptions and security breaches caused by poorly managed and maintained systems are costly and can be devastating to your company’s reputation. If you choose to outsource your business firewall management you are often given access to professionals that can perform maintenance, repairs, and updates as needed rather than as time permits.
One of the issues with in-house firewall management is that they need continuous maintenance and monitoring to follow compliance and security standards. Using a service to perform these tasks can save your company substantially while also allowing you access to professionals you might not otherwise afford.
Access Control and Log Analysis
If you have a more substantial IT infrastructure, the process of reviewing and monitoring access logs and controls can take up significant amounts of resources. When you add in compliance requirements such as HIPPA, ISO, and PCI, there is a considerable workload that may not be possible for your dedicated IT team. Fortunately, an outside managed firewall service is perfect for making all of these tasks easy, dependable, and affordable.
