Firewalls are a core component of an overall network and information security strategy and architecture. An element of our Internet Access Services portfolio, Colt Managed Dedicated Firewall (MDF), protects your mission-critical networks and application services from compromise and helps prevent intrusions from hackers, viruses, worms and other web-borne threats.
MDF is provided as an optional service and includes a customer-dedicated firewall appliance on customer site, maintained and remotely managed by Colt. It comprises installation, operation and maintenance of hardware, software and policies.
Customers will be able to benefit from the management and monitoring performed by Colt Solution Management Centre (SMC) and Security Operations Centre (SOC) 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Colt SOC uses vast security expertise from the Security Operations Centre’s Security Threat Intelligence programme thus securing customers’ business communications infrastructure.
In order to keep the firewall under control as a whole, easily accessible web-based reporting is provided. This covers the security policy deployed, statistics reports on the firewall activity, events viewer (Syslog) referred to a specific interval time of the customer’s choice and the health of the firewall’s performance.
The MDF is available in four different variants, with the option of configuring Active/Standby High Availability to get a higher level of reliability.
