Introduction to Perimeter Security

Whether you are a medium or enterprise-size industry player, and whether you are in the private sector or public sector, your organisation will be exposed to security threats. These attacks can permeate your endpoints, which are not only ‘created’ by the range of devices the colleagues in your organisation use, but also by the outer edges of your network, or perimeter. BCX helps you implement Perimeter Security against threats that include Denial of Service attacks, snoops, and other malicious activity, and we prioritise Perimeter Security as your first line of defence.

What is Perimeter Security?

Perimeter Security denies unauthorised traffic access to your organisation. We offer gateway defence mechanisms such as customised firewalls, threat management systems, intrusion prevention systems, and anti-spam and web content filtering gateways. At BCX, we create a barrier of integrated hardware, software, and policies, which will combat threats to networks, hosts, applications, and databases from remote internet environments. Our partners benefit from industry best practice, and round-the-clock firewall monitoring that generates immediate alerts and responses for service outages and security threats.

Our Perimeter Security management expertise extends across 24/7 monitoring, configuring and provisioning devices, threat alerts, supplying product enhancements, upgrades and patch management, and firewall rules, data logging and forensics. We deliver our Perimeter Security services across South Africa, and, depending on network connectivity, we can also service you on the rest of the continent.
