Managed Firewall & Wifi
Convenient Rental Options
Just Fix IT offers convenient rental options of managed firewalls and wifi access points to ensure you have a reliable safe network that keeps up with advances in technology and cybersecurity.
Next Generation Firewall – Your First Line of Defense:
Firewalls are fundamental to protecting network traffic including the flow of sensitive data. They control who has remote access into the network, and also filter the outbound use of the internet and other file transit protocols. They are required for compliance to mandates like PCI DSS, HIPAA, and GDPR.
Comprehensive firewall management requires a high degree of expertise and constant vigilance. Firewalls are not a point-and-click or set-it-and-forget-it technology. Purchasing and initially configuring a firewall that is adequate for any given environment is only the beginning.
As firewall technology has increased in response to the rise of cyberthreats, the newer models are referred to as Next Generation Firewalls – network routers with Artificial intelligence inside to proactively detect threats by their signature patterns. For smaller businesses, it has become more and more complex to adopt best practices for network security and to keep the firewalls current. In addition, the escalating costs of firewall hardware with ‘puffed up’ subscription services with long term commitments means that owning and updating firewall hardware every few years is no longer the cheapest option.
Just Fix IT responded to our customers demand for a cost effective, secure and simple to operate firewall device. Through our partnerships with security experts like Cisco and Sophos, we have created the JFx Managed Firewall offering that gives a monthly rental option, with Just Fix IT techs providing all the support and setting updates. Companies that don’t have the personnel resources available to manage their firewall or other security devices can close data security gaps and better prevent data breaches by using a managed firewall service.
During network security audits we find that the security levels are much higher for companies that utilize a reputable managed firewall service so that they can better focus on their core business objectives.
With the JFx Managed Firewall, the onsite hardware is included with full maintenance during the rental period, along with Next Generation threat prevention (Intrusion Prevention, Advanced Network Protection and web filtering). These are remotely managed by our Network Operations Centre and are updated through feeds from major global threat discovery labs, keeping you current from Zero Day threats and new vulnerabilities.
By choosing a device from a Managed Service Provider that can respond quickly and appropriately to network threats and alerts, we are able to add multi-layers to your cybersecurity approach.
Whether for compliance or data security alone, a managed firewall service can add significant security to a network. Call Just Fix IT for details of how you can upgrade your current office firewall for less than you would expect.
Centralized Wifi Access:
As more and more devices around the world connect wirelessly to the internet or corporate networks through wifi access points, customers and staff have high expectations for performance – it is assumed that a good signal will be there when you need it. Issues like limited coverage, signal congestion, range can make a huge dent in customer relations and their perception of your business.
Most customers suffer along in silence using internet carrier-provided wifi routers, that do not give good signals in all areas, are preset with confusing wifi network names, and don’t scale for guest access.
Just Fix IT is able to fix all these issues through our cost effective JFx Managed Wireless Access Points. Our Sophos brand access points operate on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands (using AC & N frequencies) and are typically equipped with 3×3:3 antennaes to produce a mesh of coverage that fills in blind spots, optimizes the signal channel to avoid interference and allows more users to connect faster.
For higher density requirements such as auditoriums or conference rooms, high capacity 4×4:4 antennae devices are available, and outdoor coverage can be customized to include parking lots or atriums.
When creating the product range, we focused on features that enhance your branding and customer experience. If you need separate guest access that does not connect to your company network, that is ready to go. We help you design your wifi network names to be simple for visitors to use. Our designers can create a signal heat map to optimize the locations and overlap of the access points. Advanced options like web filtering (blocking certain web sites) or including a banner page upon connection all help with your company branding and applying corporate IT usage policies.
From a customer perspective, the JFx Managed Wifi device turns on and just works. Running to the required location on Cat5e or better network cable, the Managed Access Point is powered via enhanced Power over Ethernet (PoE+) in line adaptors or an existing PoE-capable network switch port, If available. The SSID and settings are centrally managed by Just Fix IT Network Operation Centre allowing us to apply and regularly update network policies and to periodically refresh the wifi password for added security.
When combined with the JFx Managed Firewall, the JFx Managed Wifi can extend the physical area of your company network further without incurring additional cyberthreats.
