ibm/SEIMLESSS distributes MANAGED SECURITY SERVICES CLOUD Managed firewalls and Unified Threat Management (UTM) in the cloud helps simplify your security infrastructure, reduce costs, improve latency and limit operational complexities enabling you to focus on growing your business by leveraging ibm/SEIMLess Managed Security Services to help protect Internet connections.
In today’s business environment the Internet, applications and the cloud are becoming increasing important to everyday business. These are becoming critical for any enterprise to be competitive, providing new business models (e-commerce), enabling quick/easy communication, increasing productivity and opening up new growth opportunities. With these benefits comes increased network complexity and security concerns. Each new connection to your network increases exposure to ever-evolving threats, putting your business at risk.
ibm/SEIMLess Managed Security Services
Cloud solutions provide you secure Internet access with managed firewall, intrusion prevention, anti-virus/anti-spam and web content filtering capabilities, protecting and scaling with your business. EU Firewall Asia Firewall Latam Firewall NA Firewalls ibm/SEIMLess’s cloud-based firewall and UTM solution can offer diverse secure Internet access globally with gateways on four different continents.
This solution offers a low latency access option for improved Internet speeds and application response times. Compared to backhauling traffic back to one or a few centralized datacenters for filtering, deploying a firewall and UTM service in the cloud can offer lower latency and a reduced cost model without the need for significant capital investment to deploy dedicated hardware at each site or continually update devices.
As the number of remote locations increases, the cost of a distributed secure Internet access solution can grow significantly. Business Solutions Scalable – Support networks of any size and in any location globally. Flexibility to grow with your business and support any number of sites and any amount of Internet traffic. Low cost – Help reduce capital outlay and control headcount/IT staff with a predictable monthly cost and no upfront capital expenditure or continued investment in hardware or software.
Software Defined Perimeter (SDP)
Software-defined perimeter (SDP), also known as Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), is a new approach for securing remote access to business applications both on-premises and in the cloud. SDP is an integral part of Gartner’s Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) framework.
Enterprises have long relied on virtual private networks (VPNs) to connect mobile or remote users to applications and other network resources. But, traditional VPNs are poorly suited for the shift to the cloud and to the increase in work-from-home users. VPNs rely on appliances, such as firewalls or VPN concentrators, forcing remote users’ traffic to specific physical locations. This architecture adds latency and creates capacity constraints. Once connected through a VPN, users are trusted with access to all resources on the network, increasing the risk of malware propagation and data breach. And, to reach the VPN gateways, users must rely on the unpredictable. Overall, legacy VPN architectures expose the enterprise to attacks and adversely impact the user experience, especially when accessing cloud applications.
Leverage ibm/SEIMLess resources (experts, knowledge, systems, etc.) to provide “always-on” Internet security, eliminate ongoing monitoring and management of Internet security systems, freeing up IT/Security Staff to focus on strategic projects. Security – Comprehensive Internet security provided in the cloud. Helps defend against a wide range of malware and attack types, helping to secure your Internet connections from threats to applications, systems and endpoints that are critical for day-to-day business.
