Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) Service Definition

Firewalls are considered the most critical and first component of ensuring a secured network. The MDX-I Dedicated Hosted Virtual Firewall (DHVF) provides the maximum level of perimeter protection for cloud customers who transact via the internet or private VPN lines. DHVF incorporates an Intrusion Prevention Service (IPS) for protection against malicious attacks.

Since networks are continually under attack, firewalls and other software modules prevent most attacks from doing any damage. New forms of attack must be prohibited and reported in a manner that makes network managers aware of the nature of the attack and its source.
