Do you own next-gen firewall? If you do, you’ve certainly taken the right step to ensure that your network is protected, your systems are safe, and your computers are secure from today’s advanced cyberthreats that seem to exploit every possible vulnerability in a network. When it comes to network security and network protection, you simply can’t skip a beat. Adopting next generation firewall technology will not only help to protect you today, but in the future as well.
So, if you’re already implemented a next-gen firewall system, how do you know that you’re taking advantage of everything that this new technology has to offer? Do you decrypt SSL traffic on your firewall? If not, you’re only checking, monitoring, and verifying only 50% of the traffic coming into your network, which still leaves a massive gap for potential cyberthreats to exploit.

A dedicated firewall analyst is assigned to be an extension of your team. We are watching your firewall 24x7, so you can run your business.
Are you mandated by HIPPA, PCI, SOX, NIST or other compliances that require you to keep and maintain logs? We generate and keep these logs for you, so they are there when you need them.
Block Lists for URL and DBL Services that contain high risk threats. These lists are consistently updated therefore all known threats are always blocked and you don’t have to worry about making sure your firewall is updated.
It’s more than checking a box that you are logging your firewall activity. It is about being able to store and easily go back 1, 3, 5, or 7 years if needed to see that activity.
A key feature to NGF, regularly scheduled external vulnerability scans are a must in today every changing security and threat environment. Where are the holes in your network?
In order to help show our clients just where their network tracking is coming from, we assign a dedicated firewall analyst to serve as an extension of their team. The firewall analyst is tasked with monitoring your system and network, becoming familiar with your business and network traffic, and preparing simple and easy to understand daily reports.
These daily reports provide tremendous insight into your network traffic throughout the last 24 hours. They include any actionable items, as well as the actions that your analyst took to protect your network, such as blocking a bad IP address.
In addition, our team will analyze and optimize the rules and regulations of your next-gen firewall to ensure that it is conducive to your business practices. We’ll work to identify your main sources of traffic, as well as eliminate any unnecessary, unused, or risky rules that could leave your network vulnerable to an attack. And then, we’ll further optimize your firewall security rules based on the potential for new threats and additional information that we collect from the log.
Paramount to everything that your analyst will do, is the fact that he or she will relentlessly work to provide you with simple information that you can use to further drive efficiency for your business.Back To Services
Firewall auditing isn’t exactly an easy process. Often, most business owners won’t even touch their firewall after they’ve set it up – they simply “set it and forget it.” However, in today’s world, that rule of thumb no longer applies. And when it comes to an internal or regulatory audit, prepping your next-gen firewall beforehand can be extremely tedious, meticulous, and time-consuming – especially if you’re not entirely tech-savvy.
At SecureNGF, we can comprehensively prepare your firewall for an audit or compliance review. Because we use cutting-edge software to ensure compliance, we can generate reports quickly on the fly, execute sound change management strategies, and much more.
Remember, our goal is to make your life simpler.Back To Services
SecureNGF provides External Dynamic Block List URL and DBL services, which contain the list of high-risk IP addresses and domain names to ensure the protection of your network. We routinely update this list based on new threats within both inbound and outbound traffic.
DBLs are quite effective in stopping new threats directly in their tracks while the particular firewall vendor that you’re using updates its new threat database. For example, imagine you receive a phishing email with a link that executes a script to download spyware. If your DBL already has the IP or domain name in its list, your next-gen firewall will block the traffic to that IP or domain name.
The benefits of our Dynamic Block List feature:
So, how exactly does this feature impact your business? Dynamic Block Lists allow your next-gen firewall to build up a knowledge and immunity against high-risk traffic sources and URLs. Essentially, your DBL is your system’s first line of defense. If your system doesn’t have to worry about receiving traffic from potential risky URLs, it can devote its energy towards protecting its vulnerable points of entry.
Think of a Dynamic Block List as a filter that essentially grows in scale and scope as SecureNGF continues to update our lists of high-risk traffic sources. The larger the screen gets, the more likely you can catch and prevent cyber threats and attacks before they even come close to exploiting a potential vulnerability in your system.
The best way to ensure that you’re protected against an increasing wave of cyber threats is to ensure that your firewall is in line with industry best practices. Our systems constantly monitor millions of traffic sources and continuously update our Dynamic Block Lists to ensure that your systems will be inaccessible by these potential threats.Back To Services
If you’re new to the idea of a next generation firewall, you may not be aware of the implications that can come along with not maintaining a firewall log. Having the ability to look back and review past attempts at intrusions, past vulnerabilities, and past traffic sources could leave you at a significant disadvantage in the event that an intrusion does take place today.
At SecureNGF, we not only monitor your firewall on a 24/7 basis, but we also store all of the information from the log for 1 full year in our Cloud data server. And if you’d prefer to keep your log around for a longer period of time, we also offer 3, 5, and 7-year storage options. We can even off-load your log to your FTP server at no additional charge.
We use LogPoint’s SIEM tool to not only offer a log management solution, but to also analyze past threats and vulnerabilities, so that you can gain a deeper insight into the types of threats that you’ve experienced in the past, if and how they’ve adapted to exploit different vulnerabilities, and how your system has reacted to these new and evolved threats.
In our minds, it isn’t enough to simply log your threats, they need to be thoroughly examined, studied, and analyzed to bring the big picture to the forefront of your security strategy.
The Benefits of our Firewall Log Management feature:
Having the intuitive ability to instantly go back into your firewall log and look at specific instances in which your systems were targeted maliciously is priceless for any business or organization across industry, scale, and scope. Having a business-driven view of risk is something that can help you to further optimize your systems and ensure that they’re always protected.
The best way to ensure that you’re protected against an increasing wave of cyber threats is to ensure that your firewall is in line with industry best practices. Our systems constantly monitor thousands of firewalls to determine that your systems are performing at the same level, if not better. When it comes to next generation firewall technology, you can never be too cautious.
It’s always better to be prepared, wouldn’t you say?Back To Services
To truly and accurately test your next-gen firewall, we perform external vulnerability scans that work to search for every possible vulnerability that can be exploited. These comprehensive and extensive scans can be performed every quarter, and they’re also included in our managed service agreement.
These scans work to ensure that your business is always best prepared, protected, and secured against any outside network attack.
The benefits of our External Vulnerability scans:
When it comes to your systems, waiting around for a potential threat to impact your network could be detrimental to your business processes. Instead, why not take a more proactive approach? At SecureNGF, our External Vulnerability scans allow businesses to leave the risk mitigation tasks to the security experts who specialize in next-gen firewall protection.
As security experts, we know just how to scan and monitor your systems to determine any potential entry points, vulnerabilities, or ongoing security exploitations, so that you can rest assured knowing that your systems are always safe and protected from intrusions.
When it comes to your systems, it just isn’t worth the risk. Work with SecureNGF to take advantage of three exceptional features and services specifically designed to protect you, your business, your systems, and your customers and clients from the growing threat of cyber attacks.
If you’re interested in working with SecureNGF, let’s get started!
Over the years your firewalls have accumulated thousands of rules and objects, and many of these rules are now out-of-date or obsolete. Bloated rulesets not only add complexity to daily tasks such as change management, troubleshooting and auditing, they can also impact the performance of your firewall appliances, resulting in decreased hardware lifespan and increased TCO.
Safely removing rules, however, is not easy as it may cause application outages. And periodic rule recertification projects are time-consuming and complex – with multiple teams trying to understand why rules were created in the first place.
SecureNGF allows you to effortlessly optimize your firewall policy and keep it clean and lean. Its actionable reports identify and help you remove the bloat and clutter from your policy, while SecureNGF’s automated change management processes ensure that new rules are optimally designed and implemented so that you don’t generate more clutter over time.
