Overview

You want to innovate with cloud, analytics, mobility and social business, but these understandably heighten security concerns. It’s not realistic to ask your staff or partners to leave their own devices behind. Firewall management can reduce your risks, help you stay on top of regulatory compliance, and meet the demands of a highly instrumented world.

Real-time access prevention

Use firewall management to prevent access from unauthorized users to better manage network visibility. 

Support for multiple firewall technologies

Rely on IBM expertise and a vendor-neutral approach to support Cisco, CheckPoint, Fortinet, Palo Alto and Juniper firewall technologies to deliver return on investment.

Visibility and reporting

Obtain detailed visualization and analytics on devices, groups or your site and gain monitoring, management and analysis from our in-house analysts and  the IBM Virtual Security Operations Center (vSOC) portal. 

Device management

Enable daily backups, device policy and configuration management, managed firewall device updates and device troubleshooting.

Device monitoring

Speed time to detect malicious activities with agent or agentless monitoring, featuring detailed checks and advanced ticket workflows.

Log collection and retention
