It is with great pleasure that GCOMM announces the launch of our newest service– hosted firewall. GCOMM’s hosted firewall provides security to your WAN and facilitates company-wide Internet access through a centralised gateway that resides within our highly secure data centre.
GCOMM’s hosted firewall is a virtual instance that resides on a shared platform located in our highly secure data centre facility. This means you don’t have to purchase a firewall device, pay for rack space, power supply or Ethernet ports, but can still enjoy the same high level of security that hardware-based firewalls offer.
As it is located at GCOMM’s data centre, the hosted firewall works as a centralised Internet gateway which enables you to facilitate Internet access through a single secure point to all the business sites connected to your private IP network. This allows all user activity and company-wide security policies to be monitored from a single point, thus reducing the burden and costs associated with having to purchase, install and manage multiple firewalls.
GCOMM offers two options to meet the needs of small businesses – hosted firewall and maintained hosted firewall. The difference between the two options is whether or not customers prefer to have full access over their firewall, or would like to enjoy the benefits of outsourcing firewall maintenance to GCOMM’s IT specialists instead.
GCOMM continues to work hard to not only maintaining a superior level of service, but also to deliver new products and services customised to meet our customers’ business needs.
