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.
Hawkstone Management Services Ltd is a small company for which IT Outsourcing is realistically the only viable option. Lumina Technologies have successfully performed this role for over fifteen years. They also provide innovative solutions to keep pace with technological progress. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lumina to similar sized businesses.

We worked with Lumina on a GDPR Audit. Richard was knowledgeable and professional throughout, and did the best he could to bring a dry topic to life through lots of real life examples and analogies. We were so impressed with the service Lumina provided and the value we got from partnering with them on this project – we couldn’t recommend them enough.

It has been a great pleasure working with Lumina Technologies over the past two years. They have fully committed to being involved in the local community with volunteering and with professional advice and commitment, helping many local charities along the way. As a growing company it proves that being involved in the local community is helping them attract and retain a talented workforce and I look forward to working with them well into the future.

Richard and his team are a real inspiration to anyone who meets them and I have watched Lumina’s growth over the last few years with interest and admiration. Richard has been an amazing supporter of the Hospice of St Francis, being a Gold member of the Corporate Partner Network for almost two years. He takes an active interest in the community and is passionate about his company and his town: nothing is too much trouble, he is always willing to help, to give up his time and to provide business advice when asked. Lumina is an inspiration to any company wanting to set up business in Hertfordshire.
