Velocity Fully Managed Firewall Service

The Velocity Fully Managed Firewall Service is designed to protect your network with a solution that provides the latest in firewall equipment.

Our managed firewall service is monitored 24x7 and continually updated by engineers in our Hong Kong and Philippines offices.

A firewall is a vital part of your computer network and is your defence from Internet attack. A firewall system is an item that cannot just be installed and then forgotten about. Companies that do this “set and forget” approach are exposing their network to a multitude of hacker attacks from the Internet. Badly configured and non-updated firewalls are some of the most common vulnerabilities that appear in the penetration testing of networks that we do for our clients. Having a poorly configured or out of date firewall is the equivalent of leaving your office door unlocked.

  • Antispam - provides a comprehensive and multi-layered approach to detect and filter spam
