US data networking and managed services provider, First Communications has partnered with data security company Fortinet to launch its First Managed Security service. First Managed Security is designed to help organisations meet evolving security challenges, which include: increasing varied and complex cybersecurity threats, heightened compliance requirements, exponential growth of cloud computing, remote and mobile users, BYOD and Internet of Things (IoT), shortage of dedicated in-house security expertise and budgetary constraints. 

The First Managed Security service is based on the FortiGate Firewall and includes four building blocks of network security protection, including: firewall, intrusion protection (IDS), intrusion prevention (IPS) and antivirus (AV). Each of the four building blocks play a key role in preventing, detecting and providing reporting on attempted intrusions and attacks. In addition to the security functionality of the four building blocks, there is advanced functionality available, including application control, URL blocking and auto content filtering. 

Advanced Managed Network Security is designed to be deployed with premise based equipment, as well as with a cloud based model. It is currently available to First Communications business customers.
