Managed Services

 

The Network Box managed security service provides much more than other Security-as-a-Service (SAAS) providers do. In addition to all the standard security that competitors provide, Network Box also offers:

 

 

Monitoring

24x7x365 protection of over 1600 enterprise data networks worldwide by trained security analysts located in Security Operations Centres.

 

Threat Analysis
Network Box collates the information provided by its managed security appliances. This allows Network Box to see threats both locally and globally in real-time and, if required, pro-actively update all its clients’ boxes to the latest protection levels.

 

Bandwith Management
Make the most of existing links by analysing traffic, removing irrelevant traffic and managing business critical data through quality of service.

 

Licence Management
No need for multiple licences: One licence per box covers all users and all security applications. You’ll spend less time on administration, and be confident that everyone is protected.

 

Change Control

As part of the service, Network Box customers benefit from validation of their firewall requests by trained security experts, ensuring that security is not compromised. All changes are saved to a source control database and the configuration of the security system is backed up to a remote site. All this means Network Box customers can rely on change control being properly managed.

 

Load Balancing

Single or Multiple Internet Connections can be configured to load balance the traffic so that it suits your business needs.

 

Security Consulting

assistance with network security architecture, policy development, vulnerability assessment, forensics and attack response efforts can all be provided by the support team.

Valued Added Services

Network Box provides additional value added services:

  • Bandwidth Management
  • Change Management
  • Disaster Recovery
  • Load Balancing
  • Multiple Internet Connections
  • Security Consultancy

 

Bandwidth Management

Able to allocate bandwidth and to shape communications traffic.

By controlling bandwidth usage intelligently – eg, by allocating 30% to email, 30% to FTP and the remaining 40% to web access - it is possible to ensure that vital communication channels are always kept open.

Change Management

All critical security changes are made through a system where experts check the request to validate the decision. Changes are made on a golden copy held remotely. These changes are recorded in a version control system which enables instant roll back to the previous state or indeed to a state a number of months old if required. The change is then uploaded onto the Network Box. This has the added advantage of ensuring that there is always an off-site backed up version of the configuration of the Network Box.

Disaster Recovery

Network Box can assist in the process of Disaster Recovery.

By using Network Box managed service, customers benefit from a remotely stored configuration and assistance in the change over to the Disaster Recovery site, just when assistance is needed most. On recovering from the disaster, Network Box will be able to supply hardware and push on the original configuration from one of its SOCs and hence protect your network and help re-establish the business.

 

Load Balancing

To maximise business continuity, it is possible to install two (or more) Network Box units in high-availability mode, providing total failover redundancy. This feature is available on all Network Box models.

The industry-standard VRRP protocol is fully supported, to co-exist and inter-operate with existing high-availability equipment.

 

Multiple Internet Connections

All Network Boxes can connect to two or more Internet service providers at the same time. When all connections are functioning normally, their combined bandwidth is available for use. Should one of the connections become temporarily unavailable, Internet connectivity is still available over the remaining connections.

 

Security Consultancy

Network Box service comes with engineers who are dealing with security issues all day, everyday with a wide range of customers. This gives them a lot of experience which they can use to the benefit of their customers. Useful to know when you have a deadline to meet.
