Mount Arlington, N.J. and New York, N.Y. — August 29, 2016 —
Exigent Technologies, New Jersey and New York’s leading managed IT and cloud services company, today announced the launch of Boundary, a new managed firewall-as-a-service (FWaaS) offering that makes it easy and affordable for small and midsize businesses (SMBs) to adopt a proactive stance toward securing their IT infrastructure.
Available now through their partnership with Dell/SonicWALL, Exigent’s Boundary, Firewall-as-a-Service enables SMBs to consume their firewalls, along with several valued-added managed security services as a monthly service, rather than a capital expenditure.
“We believe in a layered approach to IT security and the firewall is a foundational and critical layer. With the threat landscape changing rapidly, IT security is truly a fast moving target. That is why this offering is so valuable to our clients. By consuming your firewall as a service, you’re taking an affirmative and proactive stance to securing your organization’s digital assets.” said Frank Vizzuso, Vice President of Business Development for Exigent Technologies.
Boundary dovetails with the growing global trend of consuming IT infrastructure as a service. A recent report titled ‘Global IT Security-As-A-Service 2016-2020’ available at MarketResearchReports.biz indicates that the IT security-as-a service market will increase at an annual compounded growth rate of 19.10% between 2016 and 2020. The study cites new breeds of advanced persistent threats, Trojans, and zero-day malware, among others which are putting organizations at increased risk and causing business owners and IT managers to take notice.
The Firewall-as-a-Service model incorporates many benefits including unlimited telephone support, answers to security related inquiries, proactive monitoring, alerting, periodic reports and more. Additionally, Boundary subscribers will enjoy the flexibility of being able to upgrade or downgrade their firewalls as needed to accommodate their technology and security needs.
“The bad guys are on a never-ending mission to discover new ways to penetrate the best IT security measures around.”, said Dan Haurey, Exigent president. “With Boundary Firewall-as-a-Service, we’re arming ourselves and our clients to stay one or two steps ahead of them.”
