I am an IT manager. Am I a risk to my network security?

    As an IT manager, you will know: Network security is mission critical for any professional establishment, be it a large corporation, a small law firm, a retail chain, or the public authorities. At the same time we face increasing risk from all kinds of threat, including new types of malware and attemp­ted blackmail by ransomware.

    The obvious solution in this situation is a state-of-the-art security infrastructure with, for example, a next-generation UTM firewall. But this is just one side of the coin, because 99% of security vulnerabilities arise from incorrectly configured firewalls.

    Is the biggest risk factor sitting in front of the computer?

    People make mistakes – not least when it comes to the complex topic of network security. As an IT manager, are you in a position to implement made-to-measure and attack-resistant security policies for your network in a dynamic working environment?

    Firewall configurations are demanding and nerve-racking

    In contrast to other network components such as routers, switches or access points, firewall configurations require regular checking and updates.

    What’s more, operating most commercially available firewalls can be very time consuming and can be incredibly confusing. Endless tables and drop-down menus make it hard to find and understand the right buttons to configure the policies.

    The result is stress, insecurity, and errors – and consequently an insecure network.

    Disruptive usability with the LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewalls

    Network security can be stress-free. The easy-to-use web interface of the LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewalls helps you to deliver the highest levels of network security. Human error in the configuration of the firewall is greatly reduced as the network firewall rules are clearly and intuitively displayed in graphic form. Displayed in a browser, a centra­lized management GUI enables granu­lar fine tuning while providing a comprehensive overview of the secured devices and connections in the network. This makes it not only simpler to implement security require­ments, it also saves time by allowing rules to be combined easily.

    Transparency is maximized thanks to exhaustive audit and compliance reports.

    Firewall configuration in under 5 minutes with LANCOM

    Firewall configuration made easy: For many IT administrators, setting up a firewall for the first time often means an encounter with uncer­tainty, inexperience, or bad memories. Our answer to these concerns are the user interface and the helpful wizards that come with our firewalls.

    A few mouse clicks with the intuitive installation wizard for the LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewalls is all it takes for a quick and easy initial configuration in under five minutes.

    And it gets even easier: Cloud-managed security!

    Maximum protection. Minimum effort.

    Go for the cloud – go for “One-Click Security”. The LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC) handles every aspect of the manual firewall configuration as well as setting up VPN connections (Auto VPN). The content filter, anti-virus features, SSL inspection, and the application management are configured centrally and applied at all sites automatically. The implementation of even complex security policies is reduced to just a few mouse clicks in the LMC.

    It was never easier to implement network security. So easy it is disruptive, our simple operation and monitoring concept helps you to implement a made-to-measure security architecture for your network, entirely based on industry-leading cybersecurity technology.
