About Firewall-as-a Service

There are two types of firewalls – one you replace every 7 years and the other you rent on a monthly basis. Renting on a subscription basis is called Firewall-as-a-Service (FaaS). It’s a lot CHEAPER; up to 400% LESS than if you have one on-site. Plus it includes a Warranty, Firmware Updates and UNLIMITED Support from the manufacturer!

What is a firewall?

A firewall is a physical device or software that allows content to go in and out of a network. They’re configured or programmed with specific criteria to SAFEGUARD against unauthorized access. Allowing businesses to take advantage of high-speed broadband, while protecting them from cyberattacks. If your company has a network, you need a firewall. If you don’t have one, your company is vulnerable to viruses and hackers.

What is FaaS?

FaaS allows companies to ‘rent’/pay a monthly fee for a firewall, support and subscription, sans upfront capital expenses or costs.

What is required to install FaaS?

In order to install, you will NEED the support of a company that offers their firewalls as FaaS and one of their licensed affiliates. As an MSP, Circulent is licensed and we have the technical knowledge to determine your company’s needs, install, set parameters and maintain.
