Hardware Firewall Setup

Managed Firewall

Farpost's Managed Firewall Services protect an organization's key information assets across networks, hosts, applications and databases.

Are you concerned about security on your Internet-connected office network or on your servers colocated at Data Centre?

Are you concerned about the cost required to hire and retain a full-time staff member to configure and maintain your firewall devices?

With the increase in frequency and sophistication of Internet attacks, firewall protection is now essential for all businesses connecting their servers or office networks to the Internet.

Farpost's Managed Firewall solution can provide you with secure, 24x7 management and monitoring of your firewall devices at a fraction of the cost of doing it yourself.

Farpost recognizes that security needs differ greatly from one organization to another and that the security requirements of small business environments can vary greatly from large, multi-server or multi-office organizations. As such, Farpost offers a number of different Managed Firewall solutions which meet the needs of all organizations, small, medium, and large.

Our security experts will work with you to determine your security needs. We will configure and deploy your firewall for you. We will monitor and maintain your firewall on an on-going basis. We will provide you with monthly reports summarizing the intrusion attempts which were blocked by the firewall. We will make rule changes whenever you request them. We will do all of this for a low, monthly fee.

Farpost's Managed Firewall service utilizes firewall devices from Cisco Systems, SonicWALL, and UNIX-based solutions.

Hardware Firewall Setup


The performance and security of conventional software firewalls is strictly limited by the server platforms and operating systems on which they run. Today's world of Gigabit networks and multinational hacking organisations demands orders of magnitude greater throughput and security. Hardware firewalls offer this increased performance and avoid the widely publicised operating system vulnerabilities.

The Frontline in Firewall Security
Network processors are used for the frontline processing in hardware firewalls due to their intrinsic fast header processing capabilities. These network processors provide very fast frontline packet processing e.g. packet filtering and meta information gathering (stateless information). This is passed to a second line processor to enable lawful interception, intrusion detection system, or stateful hardware firewall applications.
