Firewalls are fundamental to protecting network traffic including the flow of sensitive data. Companies that don’t have the personnel resources available to manage their firewall or other security devices can close data security gaps and better prevent data breaches by using a managed firewall service. A lot of the companies employ internal IT personnel to manage their firewalls, but many also choose to utilize a reputable managed firewall service so that they can better focus on their core business objectives.
Comprehensive firewall management requires a high degree of expertise and constant vigilance. Firewalls are not a point-and-click or set-it-and-forget-it technology. Purchasing and initially configuring a firewall that is adequate for any given environment is only the beginning.
Whether for compliance or data security alone, a managed firewall service can add significant security to a network.
Organizations are increasingly moving workloads to the cloud to capitalize on virtualization benefits—but with that move comes new security requirements. Enter the Juniper vSRX Virtual Firewall, providing scalable, secure protection across private, public, and hybrid clouds.
The vSRX offers the same features as a physical firewalls but in a virtualized form factor for delivering security services that scale to match network demand.
Deployed in your private cloud, vSRX protects against the lateral spread of advanced threats between virtual machines within your network borders. It provides scalable application security for dynamic workloads and protects mission-critical applications from known and unknown threats.
The vSRX Virtual Firewall helps you seamlessly extend your private cloud into public cloud environments, securely moving data and workloads with ease. As a VPN gateway, the vSRX provides remote users with safe access to their workloads. As a segmentation gateway, the vSRX protects public-cloud workloads by blocking lateral threats using application policies that help maintain security and compliance.
