If you rely on the Internet for success, then security is a critical requirement. Internap has a full portfolio that addresses your needs, and you can deploy our services in the manner that best suits your business. We offer:

Managed Firewall

Managed Intrusion Prevention & Intrusion Detection Systems (IPS/IDS)

Managed Firewall

Firewalls provide strong perimeter security, but they also can provide the bullseye for a concentrated attack. That’s why a firewall should never be treated as a “fix it and forget it” security solution. Firewalls require regular assessment, configuration and updates to be effective in the ever-increasing intrusion landscape. With Internap’s Managed Firewall service, you get:

  • Security Expertise: We can operate as an extension of your in-house IT staff, bringing the latest knowledge in security, best practices and advanced configuration to your business.
  • Proactive Management: We manage your appliance on a regular basis, because that’s the only way to ensure that its firmware and patches are up-to-date should new threats enter the security landscape.
  • Hardware Firewall Appliance Included: Internap relies on FortiGate from Fortinet®, because it offers the highest level of security at a very attractive price/performance ratio.
  • Integration Flexibility: Internap’s Managed Firewall service can fit any network topology with little or no network change. This service can support many modes of operation, including transparent, route and Network Address Translation (NAT).
  • Valuable Reporting: A customer portal provides your in-house IT staff with access to real-time information that includes in/out access and event information. The easy-to-understand presentation is ideal for regulatory compliance or management review.
  • Built-In DHCP Server: Use your firewall to assign the network-addressing information to local area network computers.
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN): Built-in robust VPN functionality allows for site-to-site secure access from branch office and remote sites, so you don’t need redundant appliances.

Managed Anti-DDos

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks demand specialized attention. Truly effective DDoS mitigation involves not only protecting all layers of a network, but also identifying and stopping the delivery mechanisms, and whenever possible, identifying the source of an attack so that the information can be provided immediately to law enforcement.

Regardless of your network resources, existing security hardware and physical location, Internap can filter and protect your business. Our service results in DDoS mitigation and protection are backed by an unmatched service level agreement. Our approach includes:

  • Leading-edge filtering techniques
  • High-speed bandwidth and peering
  • Advanced routing and other patent-pending devices

  • Local DDoS-free data distribution and distributed mitigation capacity
  • High-performance route aggregation
  • Spam and virus filtering
  • Mapping/Scanning prevention and application protection

Managed Anti-DDos: Advantages For Your Business

  • Creates business continuity – it’s transparent to you and your customer
  • Reduces costs associated with data recovery and lost business
  • Prevents attacks from consuming expensive bandwidth
  • Improves overall performance
  • Protects the integrity of your online presence and brand

Managed Intrusion Prevention & Intrusion Detection Systems

If your business requires seamless access for mobile employees, partners, suppliers and customers, then proactive network surveillance is a must. The ever-increasing sophistication of network attackers means that simply adding security hardware and software — no matter how up-to-date it is — is an ineffective defense. With Internap’s Managed Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and Intrusion Detection System (IDS), you receive proactive and powerful network surveillance and monitoring that is configured, managed and updated on a regular basis by technical experts.

Internap’s IPS & IDS deliver:

  • Security Expertise: We can operate as an extension of your in-house IT staff, bringing the latest knowledge in security, best practices and advanced configuration to the table.
  • Proactive Management: We manage your appliance on a regular basis, because that’s the only way to ensure that its firmware, signature and patches are up-to-date if new vulnerabilities are discovered.
  • Included Hardware Appliance: FortiGate-IPS from Fortinet offers the highest level of security at a very attractive price/performance ratio.
  • Integration Flexibility: Our IPS and IDS services fit into any network topology with little or no network change.
  • Valuable Reporting: Extensive auditing and logging capabilities offer fully customized reports in easy-to-understand formats.
  • Proof of Compliance: The IPS and IDS services help your business meet regulatory and best practice requirements, such as FSA, DPA, Basel, ISO 17799, HIPAA and GLA.

IPS & IDS Features

  • 24/7 protection and support
  • Implementation and configuration
  • Security policy configuration
  • Off-site back-up configuration storage
