Managed Firewall Protection

A protective barrier against attacks

Protect your business-critical information against unauthorized access, and help ensure network security and availability with UKFast's managed firewall options.

The Cisco ASA (Adaptive Security Appliance) firewall protects corporate networks of all sizes, providing highly secure access to data - anytime, anywhere, using any device.

What is Managed Firewall Protection?

We take your protection seriously. So, as a UKFast customer your solution automatically sits behind a fully managed redundant Cisco ASA shared firewall. For extra control and security you may wish to consider a dedicated firewall, or a dedicated redundant firewall to protect your business-critical infrastructure.

A firewall provides a critical element of a hosting solution, as unprotected servers are vulnerable to online attacks, leading to downtime or a compromise of data. A firewall is a protective system that lies, in essence, between your network and the Internet, preventing unauthorized use and access to your network.

Its job is to analyse data entering and exiting the network based on your configuration. Playing an important role on your network, a firewall provides a protective barrier against most forms of attack coming from the outside world.

Redundant Firewall Protection

Your first layer of defence against hackers, virus attacks and other risks is the fully managed redundant Cisco ASA firewall your environment sits behind, which means all server traffic is inspected and filtered before it even reaches your hosting network.
