Continuous Networks, a leading NJ IT Support company, announced the immediate availability to clients of its new firewall-as-a-service, or FaaS, offering. Turning a traditionally burdensome class of capital expenditures into affordable operational expenses, the new Continuous Networks FaaS enables best-in-class network security in an especially accessible way. With full remote management of the cloud-based firewall solution, Continuous Networks can monitor and respond to threats that might otherwise endanger the business-critical IT assets of clients.
“A strong, well-designed firewall is an absolute necessity for businesses today, because it serves as the front line in the defense against attackers,” Continuous Networks Chairman and CEO Jason Silverglate said, “Unfortunately, many businesses find it difficult to line up the capital expenditures required to buy a new firewall device. Our new firewall-as-a-service option is already making things a lot easier for clients, while assuring them of the best security the industry can provide. With this new important new option now being available, we invite all who are interested to contact us for a free consultation.”
Whether in the form of specialized software running on a general-purpose computer or as a specialized device designed from the ground up for the task, a firewall assesses and regulates network traffic. Deciding whether connections from particular endpoints or of certain kinds are authorized to proceed further into a corporate network or to exit from it, a firewall always plays a fundamental role in ensuring IT security.
Unfortunately, acquiring a suitable firewall device has traditionally been expensive, with products sold by leading vendors like Cisco and Juniper often carrying price tags of five or six figures. This has left many businesses torn between the need to provide for security and the difficulty of arranging the associated capital expenditures, a dilemma that can become dangerous if not successfully resolved.
The new Continuous Networks firewall-as-a-service option addresses this issue directly and in a way that will make excellent sense for clients of all focuses and organizational scales. With all traffic heading for or leaving a FaaS-equipped network proceeding through a cutting-edge cloud-based firewall, clients enjoy the greatest possible security, including automatic updates and real-time monitoring.
At the same time, the FaaS model means that the large capex obligations traditionally associated with firewalls are transformed into cost-effective, easily satisfied ongoing opex payments instead. As one of New Jersey’s leading IT specialists for nearly twenty years, Continuous Networks regularly delivers innovative, effective solutions of this kind.
