Spitfire's MPLS and Ethernet customers stand to benefit from a new security service launched by the ISP, a Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) managed solution.
FWaaS leverages FortiGate firewall technology with purpose-built security processors and threat intelligence security services from AI-powered FortiGuard labs.
"Spitfire FWaaS is designed as a cost-effective multi-tenancy alternative to a dedicated managed firewall, which Spitfire can already provide," said Sales Director Dominic Norton.
"FWaaS enables Spitfire partners to address multi-site organisations with diverse Internet usage and increasingly demanding compliance issues.
"In particular, it offers significant benefits to schools and academy groups. The service is designed for any organisation with a need for UTM features and those requiring a firewall refresh."
FWaaS can be consumed as an all-managed service by Spitfire, or entirely or partially managed by the customer.
"Cyber security is of paramount importance to our customers, with growing threats from a range of criminal and malicious sources," added Norton.
"Our Firewall as a Service provision is a natural evolution of the move to the cloud for all applications. It ensures that customers have all the benefits of a SaaS solution including automatic updates for up to the moment protection and business continuity security without the need for internal IT resources."
