2. What makes a SOC?
3. What is the performance of SOC Cloudfence in relation to third-party solutions?
In the case of third-party solutions, the action of our SOC is limited to monitoring. The integration of our services with third-party solutions can be carried out through log reading, integrations via API, and agents installed on monitored devices.
4. What is the difference between a firewall product and a service?
Firewalls sold as a product are like intrusion alarm systems without monitoring. They make unauthorized entry difficult, but if an event occurs, even with triggered alerts, they alone will not prevent an intrusion from occurring.
In addition, these products have a limited life cycle, which requires the customer to always buy new equipment after this period. Other costs, such as annual renewals of licenses for functionality, training, certifications, attendance to occurrences, generate unpleasant surprises due to unexpected expenses.
Firewall as a Service
Cloudfence Managed Firewall service, in addition to providing the aforementioned protection, has an additional layer of activities, such as monitoring and management by our SOC, ensuring that unauthorized access is monitored and has the appropriate countermeasures, if necessary.
The firewall service has a fixed cost including hardware (appliance), all features present in the firmware, support, monitoring, updates, training, etc.
