Firewall as a Service

With our Firewall as a Service solutions, we enforce your security protocols across all users and devices from a single, cloud platform.

By creating and maintaining a virtual barrier around your cloud infrastructure and applications, we filter out potential malicious network traffic and protect your digital assets from security breaches and cyber attack.

If you’ve made the transition into cloud computing, you’re likely becoming increasingly reliant on SaaS apps, IaaS platforms and other cloud-based solutions. Your critical next step is to find a cloud-based firewall service to safeguard your network security. That’s where ARO can help.

A strong and adaptable security posture

We put measures in place to block potentially harmful network traffic and flag and filter out unauthorised access to your private cloud networks. We do this by implementing cloud-based firewalls, configuring security policies, monitoring network traffic for threats, and providing ongoing security management and updates. 

  • Robust network security. Limiting who and what can access your cloud network reduces the likelihood of security breaches and obliterates the success rate of cyber attacks.
  • Network monitoring. Our cloud firewalls inspect and evaluate the authenticity of traffic into your cloud network, preventing unauthorised access to your hardware and software.
  • Cross-cloud protection. Whether your people access cloud assets via your office or via a cloud VPN (virtual private network), the firewall provides uncompromisable protection.

We can extend a full range of firewall support and capabilities to your cloud-hosted operations. This empowers you to be more selective about the people, gateways and services you allow to access your cloud tools, applications and business resources.”

FWaaS is a cloud-based security solution that delivers firewall functionality as a service. It allows organisations to deploy, configure, and manage firewalls in the cloud without needing physical hardware.

Firewalls function as a barrier between your internal network and external networks (such as the internet). They analyse incoming and outgoing network traffic and determine whether to allow or block specific data packets based on predetermined security rules.

Firewall as a Service ensures efficient and reliable protection through cloud-based security and offers centralised management, real-time threat protection, and scalability. It also eliminates the need for significant upfront investments in hardware, making it a cost-effective security solution.

Businesses need FWaaS to safeguard their network infrastructure from cyber threats, unauthorised access, and data breaches. ARO’s FWaaS solution makes sure that your network remains secure and provides a crucial layer of defense against evolving cybersecurity challenges.

While Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW) focus on advanced features like application-layer filtering and intrusion prevention, Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) is a cloud-based solution that offers similar functionalities but with the added benefits of scalability, centralised management, and cost-efficiency.
