Talk to an expert

So, what do we mean by FWaaS?

A Firewall is a security device between your internal computer network and the internet. It is designed to act as a shield, monitoring all incoming and outgoing traffic. Based on pre-defined policies, data will either be allowed to pass through or, if considered a threat, blocked and reported.

FWaaS enables you to secure your network traffic and applications through physical or virtual firewalls.

A simple monthly fee covers the procurement, installation, maintenance and support of your firewall.

Frequently asked questions

FWaaS is a firewall solution delivered as a cloud-based service by Nviron. It provides next-generation firewall capabilities like filtering advanced threat protection, intrusion protection and domain name system security.


FWaaS is much like a hardware firewall you would install on-premise, with the distinct advantage that it is managed on your behalf by Nviron. Due to it being cloud-based, it can be quickly scaled to meet your expanding network without investing in additional infrastructure.

Much like traditional on-premise firewalls, FWaaS filters your network traffic to safeguard your business from internal and external threats.


FWaaS is positioned between your network and the internet. As traffic attempts to enter your network, the FWaaS inspects it, gaining insight into where the traffic came from and other behaviours that may signal it is malicious to detect and address threats.

Maintaining hardware firewalls yourself is expensive, making FWaaS an attractive alternative. The convenience of all updates and adjustments to settings handled by a third party such as Nviron allows you to free up critical resources, time, and energy for other tasks.


With FWaaS, your distributed sites and users are connected to a single, logical, global firewall with a unified application-aware security policy, allowing you to quickly and effectively scale your security. Nviron gives you access to resources that protect a wide range of devices, making FWaaS a one-solution-fits-all option, regardless of the size of your organisation.
