We maintain firewalls, gateway systems, and logging and intrusion-prevention services. Many of our customers rely on our proactive, aggregated event-management service to keep abreast of emerging trends and threats, and to provide the details needed to meet compliance and reporting requirements.
The good ol’ days
In the good old days, firewalls were kind of like the police, keeping the bad “them” away from the good “us”. In today’s world however, the “us” and “them” don’t really make sense; there are too many paths into and out of an organisation’s network (think mobile, BYOD and cloud), and too many interactions between various classes of users from administrators to employees to contractors.
Today’s firewalls are still like the police, but rather than just working at the city’s edge, they really work (sometimes in distributed and/or redundant configurations) in the middle of of an organisation’s congested, multipath intersections. And rather than just stopping “bad” network traffic, today’s firewalls support a range of related functionality including reporting and alerting, IPS and IDS, to name just a few.
DotSec designs, configures and maintains firewalls that work to control network interactions within as well as to and from an organisation, supporting a range of business processes from back-of-house to Internet-facing services.
