firewall as a service (FWaaS)

Firewall-as-a-Service(FWaaS) is a cloud service for security-related tasks. The advantage of such a centralized firewall is that the company does not have to set up its own firewall at each company location.

A central firewall provided by a cloud service provider controls all data traffic between the company headquarters and the branch offices. The FWaaS service can be used to filter, control and monitor for malware all communication links between the corporate headquarters, branch offices and production sites, as well as data traffic from employees working on the move. The central firewall provides a uniform security concept that integrates the company's entire IT landscape and requires a uniform approach to securing resources and data traffic. All employees are equally involved.
