Empowering Your Defense with Next Generation Firewalls
In the face of rising cyber threats in South Africa, adopting a Next Generation Firewall is no longer an option but a necessity. Protecting your business network and critical data is crucial to ensuring business continuity and safeguarding your reputation.
A firewall is a security appliance that separates your private network from the chaos and threats found on the Internet – it forms the heart of a network and performs multiple important tasks.
As with most hardware components, not all firewalls are created equally. Traditional firewalls are no longer sufficient to protect modern networks from the constantly evolving cyber-threats..
Kibo Connect has partnered with Sophos to offer Managed Firewall and UTM (Unified Threat Management) services so that you can focus on doing business while we provide a safe and secure network for your staff to thrive in.
Sophos are market leaders and include unique tools like Deep Machine Learning and Synchronised Security that offer an aggressive approach to threat prevention, detection, and response.
- Our Managed Firewall connects servers, users, and mobile devices within your network at the office (LAN). It can also be used to connect remote staff via a VPN or other remote branches to allow access to your network.
- It connects all your users to the Internet to allow use of cloud services and other business applications that require Internet access.
- The importance of your firewall is performing all these functions securely and providing protection against cyber-threats and attacks. Your firewall device allows your IT department or vendor to manage and monitor your network and report on all activity depending on your requirements
According to Sophos’ The State of Ransomware in South Africa 2023 report, most (78%) South African organisations were hit by a ransomware attack last year.
The number of ransomware attacks in South Africa was far higher than the 66% recorded for global respondents over the same period.
Do not be mistaken by thinking that only large organisations are targets, SME are easy targets as their layers of security are generally easier to penetrate.
