Managed Firewall

A fully managed firewall is essential to the security of your IT system. It can constantly defend your network against threats old and new without you ever experiencing any problems.

At AFLEX, managed firewalls (or “Firewall as a Service” (FaaS)) is our specialism. With fully accredited and experienced engineers, we can take care of the installation, licensing and ongoing configuration changes that your network, large or small, requires. Our preferred vendor is SonicWALL, whose virtual, cloud-based and physical firewalls have consistently out-performed the competition on performance/price basis.

So whether you need a fully managed cloud-based firewall service, want to expand your provision, or are interested in the benefits of integrating virtual assets into your existing infrastructure, talk to us about the best solutions for your specific requirements.

If your current resources don’t have the capacity to provide the 24/7 monitoring and real-time reaction needed to manage potential threats to your network, our managed firewall service is the answer.

Managed Firewall Pricing Options

Our managed firewall service pricing model is dependent of the size, nature and throughput of your network. The table below is a general pricing guide but may differ depending on these three factors.

It takes into account any remote sites, the number of connections in place and the specific nature of your business. If your company streams a lot of data (e.g. a media company) then your throughput will be comparatively high. In this case your firewall will need to do more work to ensure a good standard of performance.   

Your solution will vary depending on the specific needs of your business and the type of networks required. These prices are for individual appliances. Significant discounts are available for networks containing multiple sites / firewalls.
