Managed Firewall

What is a Managed Firewall?

Managed Firewall is typically a network service that is provided as an add-on service for Firewall. As a remote, cloud-based service, managed firewalls do not require on-premise equipment that would require configuration and maintenance by the end customer.

A service provider is responsible for the maintenance of the equipment and a portal provides the customer access to control the policy that is deployed on the network-based firewall. A typical deployment scenario takes an existing firewall configuration as a map to create the initial rule set. Ongoing maintenance and changes for the firewall are provided as a service for the end customer by the provider.
