SEACOM Business offers comprehensive hosted security solutions

It is absolutely critical for large businesses to have dependable and sophisticated security solutions for their computers and digital networks. Sensitive information and confidential data are stored on company servers and in order to gain access to this data, hackers and cyber criminals may use spyware or ransomware.

Viruses and various cyber attacks can be launched to bring down entire business systems. These threats to unprotected servers and networks can be extremely costly for a company that relies on e-commerce or online apps for day-to-day operations and profitability. This is why SEACOM Business offers large companies in Kenya comprehensive hosted security solutions.

These services have been developed by industry-leading threat management experts and are delivered via a next-generation firewall. Our hosted security solutions guarantee that a company's computers, networks and digital systems are always completely secure and up to date.

Leveraging the power of the cloud

These hosted solutions are based on network function virtualization (NFV) technology to leverage the power of cloud-based computing. Instead of relying on hardware for each network function, NFV is able to run several processes at once, utilizing software and cloud-based servers. NFV may be used to operate firewalls, intrusion detection software, and software-defined wide-area networks (SD-WAN).

For easy hybrid cloud enablement of our various security solutions, SEACOM Business also offers virtual server hosting. This makes our hosted security solutions easier to set up and implement in businesses with several branches throughout Kenya and Uganda.

SEACOM Business’s cloud-based software is also based on an award-winning unified threat management (UTM) platform. This system performs numerous security functions at the same time, including firewall, anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-spam, intrusion detection, content filtering and leak prevention.

The choice between managed, hosted or hybrid security options

Managed security assigns control and monitoring responsibilities to SEACOM Business. Our team of experts will monitor and track the business client’s dedicated server, so the company doesn't need to spend money on its own IT team or hire specialists. We become the company’s in-house team of network specialists.

Our hosted security services involve reserving a single server exclusively for the customer's usage. This server is set up on-premise or in the cloud, but remains dedicated to the company. The client may opt to manage and monitor it themselves, which does necessitate the employment of an internal IT team.

SEACOM Business is also able to offer a hybrid solution that combines managed and hosted security, ensuring that your company enjoys the best benefits of both options. Regardless of the deployment option chosen, large companies throughout Kenya are guaranteed to benefit from our world-class threat detection and prevention with our hosted security solutions.
