This project will explore the requirement for a Jisc-managed solution to firewall and routing on campus.
What we're doing
As a Jisc member, and part of the connected community, you're already protected with our DDoS and CSIRT services on every Janet IP connection. We work with our members to offer managed services; namely our managed router service.
To address the needs of those who do not have the skills or resource to establish, manage or maintain a firewall, we're exploring a range of managed firewall services to integrate with our managed router service.
The service will offer a scalable range of solutions to mitigate the risks your organisation faces.
Why does this matter?
We understand the need to protect your network from growing cyber threats. For some, this is difficult to manage, with security protection needing reactive and skilled intervention to keep ahead of the evolving threat landscape.
We run the world-class Janet Network on behalf of research and education in the UK. It’s vital we protect and support our members, using the intelligence gathered within the community to detect and resolve issues that might affect availability.
This new family of managed firewall and routing services will give you peace of mind that Jisc will mitigate risks against your network and deliver additional security services, avoiding disruption and costly or reputational impact.
We are keen to understand in detail what your requirements are; from the basic and advanced functions of your router to the function and approaches of your firewall protecting your digital estate.
Feel free to complete our requirement gathering form and we will be in touch to tell you more about the project. Alternatively, please get in touch with our project team.
