Internet Security Systems (ISS) has unveiled new components for its managed and monitored firewall service. Continuing to provide support for a wide variety of third-party firewalls, ISS has increased its managed firewall feature set and has developed a tiered service model to focus on the specific pricing and service requirements for small, medium and large enterprises.
The ISS managed service provides 24/7/365 real-time management of firewalls, delivering customised protection. ISS claims its vendor-neutral approach maximises customers’ existing investments, allowing them to leverage the technological innovations of their preferred firewall vendor, while experiencing the added efficiency and cost savings of ISS managed services. In addition to managing its own firewall offering, ISS also manages firewall products from Check Point, Cisco Systems and Juniper.
“Much of the market has maintained the status quo with managed firewall services that lack innovation and fail to meet customers’ ever-changing needs,” says Rick Miller, vice president of managed security services at ISS. “The company is setting a new standard in the market by carefully tailoring our offerings for various-sized organisations,” Miller adds.
