Every Branch in the Pacific Islands Deserves a Firewall: Why Cybersecurity Matters
Remote Branches in the Pacific Islands are often left behind when it comes to technology and infrastructure. This leaves these branch Networks vulnerable to cyberattacks, as they don’t have the same level of protection as the head office. Cybersecurity is a critical issue that needs to be addressed to keep these branches safe.
These branch offices may not be handling sensitive data or critical infrastructure, but they are still susceptible to cyber attacks. In fact, many attackers will target these types of branch offices because they know that they are often left unprotected.
That’s why it’s so important to make sure that every branch office in the Pacific Islands has a Next-Generation Firewall in place. With an integrated SD-WAN (Software-Defined WAN) and Next-Generation Firewall, these branch offices can be protected from the ever-growing threats of cyber attacks.
The right Secure SD-WAN solution can play a key role in providing superior protection against the latest Cyber Threats and providing better connectivity for Business Critical Applications.
Benefits of having a Next-Generation Firewall at the Local Branch
A Next-Generation firewall provides improved data performance and better security for the branch. Next-Generation firewalls also eliminate the need to hairpin traffic back to the central site for inspection which can improve WAN performance.
Not all SD-WAN is created equal. Secure SD-WAN uniquely designed to meet the Pacific Islands’ needs are far and few between. The right SD-WAN solution will not only provide the security but it will also optimise traffic across different WAN links, including MPLS, LTE, VSAT and even broadband. This can help to improve performance and reduce costs.
Whether your branch is running TPNG, Digicel, TFL or Vodafone – the right SD-WAN can give you end-to-end visibility of your traffic flows and security profiles.
Next-Generation firewalls are designed to protect against Cyber Threats
Next-Generation firewalls are designed to protect against the ever-evolving landscape of Cyber Threats. They provide comprehensive security features, including application control and intrusion prevention, that defend against known and unknown attacks. In addition, Next-Generation firewalls can be integrated with SD-WAN solutions to further secure branch office locations.
The Pacific Islands are a critical region for many businesses and organisations. The Next-Generation Firewall is an important tool to help ensure the safety and security of these operations. By implementing a Next-Generation firewall, businesses and organisations can protect their assets, data, and reputation from the damaging effects of cyber attacks.
If you’re doing business in the Pacific Islands, don’t wait until it’s too late to invest in a Next-Generation firewall. Contact us today to learn more about our SD-WAN and Next-Generation Firewall solutions and how they can help keep your data safe from cyber threats.
