Why network security services?
Network security threats are growing in volume and sophistication and are spread over an ever-more diverse attack surface. Extending across multiple clouds, devices, data paths, applications and users, each point in the network represents a different potential vulnerability in protecting critical assets from malicious activity.
Even a minor disruption to network infrastructures – such as a minute of downtime or a lag in service performance – can cause damage to an organisation’s reputation, bottom line or even long-term viability.
In this context, it’s crucial for organisations to prioritise integrated solutions that can respond to the full range of network and security threats through an optimised combination of threat intelligence and prevention, advanced detection-and-response systems, and expert human insight.
Why Comtact for network security?
At Comtact, we deliver next-generation network security solutions to ensure your enterprise is secure against current and future threats, while retaining the network agility and performance to meet your operational needs.
Our approach to network security services is deep yet broad: we integrate enterprise security into the core of the network itself while creating a platform that extends across highly flexible perimeters. Because our enterprise security solutions are embedded into your network infrastructure and security architecture, it’s easy to scale and adapt the platform according to your changing needs.
Because of the diversity and complexity of the network threat environment, our in-house experts deploy and manage a range of tools and technologies to create a layered yet cohesive approach that delivers against the most demanding performance criteria.
We protect you against all current and emerging threats using an integrated multi-platform approach, delivered by our team of experienced network security experts.
We build custom dashboards that cover your entire infrastructure and give you a single pane of glass across all attack vectors. These dashboards are clear, customised and configured to your specific needs and environment.
Real-time threat intelligence
Sophisticated, targeted attacks represent a big challenge to securing networks. We use real-time threat intelligence to safeguard against exploits, vulnerabilities, zero-days, and both known and previously unknown attacks.
Network complexity isn’t just a challenge to manage; it’s also a security risk. We help you implement a centralised network management platform, using a single-window management console, even if your environments are highly distributed and employing many different tools.
Free up in-house resource
Because our network security solution is fully managed and monitored 24x7x365, your in-house teams are free to concentrate on their core objectives and strategic goals.
Value for money
With scalable pay-monthly solutions, network security with Comtact delivers affordable protection that grows flexibly with your business, without heavy up-front investment in technology or human resources.
Key services and benefits
Our bespoke network solutions leverage a combination of the following integrated elements: firewalls, wide-area network (WAN) and branch protection, intrusion prevention systems (IPSs), secure web gateways, secure sockets layer (SSL) inspection, virtual private networks (VPNs) and perimeter security.
Traditional WAN technologies are now too slow and cumbersome to keep up with the volume and speed of internet connections needed today. Many organisations are turning to advanced network security solutions such as SD-WAN, particularly in response to the huge growth in remote working during the pandemic.

We use IPS engines to identify suspicious activities and prevent them from attacking your network by initiating preventative steps, for example blocking employees or guests on the network from engaging in harmful behaviour. Our approach is to integrate a customised IPS into your network firewall, instead of in their traditional place as a standalone product in the network security infrastructure.
We use a secure web gateway as a checkpoint to prevent unauthorised traffic from entering your network, providing a barrier to malicious traffic accessing key resources on the network. We can also prevent exfiltration of sensitive information from your network. Secure web gateways have become more critical to overall network security technology as cyberattack creativity and sophistication grows.
SSL inspection intercepts and decrypts all traffic transmitted through an HTTPS website, identifying malicious content, with SSL encryption often used by attackers today to hide malware. We employ an SSL on your website to provide a safe connection.
We use VPNs to route an endpoint’s connection through a private server, so that when data reaches the internet, it’s not viewable as coming from the device; in this way, sensitive information is protected. This helps you maintain a consistent security policy and appropriate access control, regardless of location, for all corporate users, applications and devices.
With traditional approaches made redundant by the disappearance of the fixed perimeter, Comtact delivers next-generation perimeter security which meets the needs of cloud-based enterprises employing highly mobile workforces.
Next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) move beyond a traditional firewall’s port/protocol inspection and blocking techniques to add comprehensive application-level inspection, intrusion prevention and intelligence from sources outside the firewall. We use NGFWs to filter packets to ensure connections are secure. We implement whitelisting or signature-based intrusion prevention systems (IPSs) to distinguish between safe and potentially malicious applications. In this way, we are able to block malware from entering a network in a way more traditional firewalls cannot deliver.
