How Service Providers and Managed Security Service Providers can automate firewall virtualization to help their customers
As a Service Provider (SP) or Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP), your customers increasingly rely on you to provide a comprehensive range of managed services and solutions, including network security. And, they demand that these services be available quickly. With an ever changing landscape, including the proliferation of IoT devices and the move to the cloud, there’s an ever-expanding threat surface when it comes to cybersecurity.
This is why enterprises no longer want to own and manage their own physical firewalls. SPs and MSSPs can capitalize on this opportunity by offering a managed, hosted virtual firewall service (VFS) to replace physical firewalls. You can also help your enterprise customers keep pace with increasing traffic volumes and close the SSL inspection gap by allowing them to use of the all next generation security features for increased threat protection.
A new approach to managed security services
Your customers need to build a dynamic security perimeter that offers performance and flexibility, while protecting both you and your customers against ever increasing cyberattacks. Virtualization is the answer but you need to combine it with automation and intelligent orchestration a turnkey platform to spin up additional services and capacity the same-day.
