Two new monitoring and reporting services have been launched for users of Check Point FireWall-1/VPN-1.
Rather than just producing event logs from which critical data must still be painstakingly extracted by the customer, Zento will use Check Point Provider-1 to identify exceptions based on previously agreed criteria. This data is then consolidated to provide customers with a more meaningful report of real security incidents, which will enable a more rapid assessment of actual threats and deployment of appropriate defences, officials said.
In addition to its Fully Managed' security service, Zento will now offer two classes of service to users who wish to maintain administrative control of Check Point's FireWall-1 and VPN-1.
The monitoring and reporting service is designed for customers who require basic monitoring to ensure their firewall/virtual private network (VPN) is up, running and performing within acceptable metrics 24x7.
The premium service is designed for organisations that require extensive monitoring and detailed reporting including advanced traffic analysis and additional attack/incident reporting.
Scott Ferguson, Check Point's regional director ANZ, said there has been increased interest in Australia for managed service providers.
"Not all companies can afford a dedicated security resource to manage their security policies and technologies, and of course outsourcing is a cost-effective alternative," he said.
