A firewall is the most effective method of securing the perimeter of your network, protecting it from internet borne threats. All network traffic that passes through the firewall is analysed and checked against complex parameters to identify any cyber security risks including hacks, DDoS, viruses and botnets.
Firewall as a Service (FWaaS)
Protecting your network from internet borne threats should be of paramount concern to every organisation. Spitfire FWaaS provides a fully managed, Unified Threat Managed service to secure your network perimeter.
Utilising Fortinet’s Fortigate firewall security and Unified Threat Management platform, Spitfire’s FWaaS service offers class leading threat protection underpinned by Spitfire’s business grade network and support services.

Spitfire’s FWaaS is a fully managed cloud firewall service that can be deployed in conjunction with Spitfire MPLS networks or single Ethernet circuits. FWaaS provides a clear management portal for customer management or can be fully managed by Spitfire if preferred. In either case Spitfire delivers a 100% target uptime SLA and 24×7 technical support.
FWaaS utilises Fortinet’s Fortigate security platform to deliver an always-on resilient solution delivering market leading functionality. The as-a-Service model ensure you benefit from an advanced feature set backed by 24×7 technical support at a fraction of the cost of deploying an equivalent dedicated on-premise solution.
Our firewall solutions can be tailored to your individual technical requirements and budget. Our most popular solution is FWaaS. Each customer benefits from a dedicated virtual instance of our Fortigate firewall platform, which is configured as a high availability pair to meet their own individual needs.
For advanced or large scale deployments we offer the same service rental model based on dedicated appliances or if preferred the equipment can be purchased outright and hosted in our core network node.
UTM describes a cyber security solution that delivers multiple layers of protection in a single platform. The FWaaS solution is based on a traditional firewall platform delivering network level security and deep packet inspection yet is enhanced with Antivirus, Anti-Spam, Application Control and Web Content Filtering.
So now you are not only protected against inbound internet threats but also ensure that your users are utilising the internet responsibly and without inadvertently introducing threats into your network.
Whether you are deploying a Spitfire MPLS network or a single Ethernet circuit the FWaaS is right for you.
All internet traffic will route through the FWaaS service before it leaves the Spitfire core network, avoiding the overhead and risks of an external proxy service. No firewall equipment is required onsite so the FWaaS solution is particularly effective for an MPLS deployment.
FWaaS is backed by Spitfire 24×7 support and a 100% uptime target. An intuitive administration portal provides reporting and troubleshooting tools or you can utilise the Spitfire support team to make changes if you prefer.
