Firewall Management Services
Protect your organisation from external threats.
A firewall is part of your network that monitors incoming and outgoing network traffic. It decides whether to allow or block unauthorised traffic or access based on a defined set of security rules while permitting outward communication. It keeps the bad guys out and can also be used to stop your employees accessing sites that could potentially pose security risks or efficiency risks to your business.
Firewalls have been a first line of defence in network security for many years. They establish a barrier between secured, controlled internal networks that can be trusted and untrusted outside networks, such as the internet.
If you’re looking to get the most out of a firewall, you will also use it as a monitoring tool. It provides useful data like what kinds of people and what kinds of threats are targeting your business. Of course, monitoring your network is resource-intensive, time-consuming, costly and requires expertise. That’s where a Firewall Management Service, provided by security experts such as Lumina Technologies, can help.
Firewall management, provided by a qualified managed service provider (MSP), addresses security threats and monitors your network traffic to understand what it typically looks like, so that a typical use can be easily identified and corrected. Lumina will monitor your network and provide analysis and reporting as part of the managed firewall package.
As part of our IT Security services, our Firewall Management service repels all potential threats from outside your network while allowing legitimate data traffic to enter and exit as normal. It can also manage and prioritise traffic and generate reports on internet usage and traffic patterns.
Firewall Management is also there to ensure that your investment in your internet bandwidth is used appropriately. We can help you prioritise traffic and control access to non-business sites.
Today’s firewalls offer state-of-the-art Unified Threat Management (UTM), which utilises a layered defence approach to inspect all traffic to ensure that only legitimate traffic may enter or leave the network.

They’ve also been able to engage with us strategically on the challenge of scaling-up our infrastructure as the firm continues to grow and evolve.
