Perimeter Security

Securing your perimeter should be considered the foundation of any business’s cyber security strategy. Your perimeter is made up of any device or service that is public facing. This includes your internet connections, remote access methods, websites and externally facing applications.

Services or devices that sit in your perimeter are a primary target for cyber criminals as they are exposed to the internet and as such, easily accessible to the outside world. Workloads are everywhere, networks are highly distributed, and workers are increasingly mobile allowing for attackers to exploit weak points.

Appliances such as NextGen or Web Application Firewalls create a layer of protection between your externally facing services and the internet. These appliances should be mandatory for any business as a first line of defence.

What is a NextGen Firewall?

In its simplest form a firewall is a system that is designed to prevent unauthorised access to your network. However, not all firewalls are created equal and as a minimum customer should only look to implement a NextGen Firewall to terminate any internet connections across their network.

A NextGen firewall is designed to be a proactive form of defence which continually scans, analyses and controls both incoming and outgoing traffic from your network. It achieves this through a number of capabilities as detailed below:


Regardless of the size of your business you should have a NextGen firewall implemented to assist your business and staff from being targeted from malicious attacks and to block access to malicious sites.

What is a Web Application Firewall?

A Web Application Firewall (WAF) is an appliance that protects your public (internet) facing websites and applications by monitoring and filtering traffic between the web application and the internet.

A Web Application Firewall should:

Ensure Protection from Web Attacks and DDoS

Protect APIs and Mobile Apps

Block malicious Bots and Automated Attacks

Secure App Delivery and Increase Availability

Control Access and Authentication

Automate and Orchestrate Security

Implementing a Web Application Firewall will not only ensure your websites are protected from modern day cyber-attacks but will also increase the performance of your website through advanced caching mechanisms.
