Next Generation Firewalls – a perfect fit for Local Authorities

More and more Local Authorities are investing in perimeter network security solutions to address cyber security and attacks, as well as adhering to government rules and regulations. These investments are often costly and only address single areas, meaning that multiple solutions need to be purchased and maintained in order to solve all of the problems.

Using Palo Alto Networks Next Generation Firewall solution, we can address multiple key areas and protect your network from cyber-attacks as well as enable you to be compliant to government code of connections. The Next Generation Firewall solution delivers comprehensive visibility and control of network traffic based upon applications, users and content, therefore provides a complete solution for Firewalling, IPS, Malware, URL and AV protection.

Cyber Attack Compliance made possible - Case Study at Fareham Borough Council

Please read more here on how Fareham Borough Council addressed their Cyber Security requirements with Palo Alto’s Next Generation Firewall whilst at the same time consolidating multiple perimeter systems into a single cost-effective solution.

"From jumping through endless hoops a year ago, we can now own the management of our own network, confident that the engine is proactively looking for new attacks that may be heading our way. Government policy needs to be strictly adhered to and the public sector has to meet more of these regulations than most. The potential headache and costs of keeping up has been removed by Khipu and Palo Alto Networks."

- Andrew Scribbans, Technical Infrastructure Manager, Fareham Borough Council
