SEACOM offers the latest in IT protection with our hosted security solutions

In this digitised age, one of the most essential aspects for any major company is the security of its information technology (IT), computers and networks. These systems are often vulnerable to cyber attacks and other high-tech risks, so it is absolutely critical that a company's IT security is robust, constantly up-to-date and always on.

Private information and confidential data are stored on company servers and computers. Hackers and cyber criminals may use spyware to get access to this data or ransomware to seize control of the information. They may even employ viruses in an attempt to erase the data and crash the company servers.

This is why SEACOM Business provides our customers with comprehensive hosted security solutions that have been developed by world-leading threat management experts and delivered using a next-generation firewall. These hosted security solutions ensure that a company's computers, networks, and systems are completely secure at all times.

SEACOM Business hosted security solutions leverage the power of the cloud

Our hosted security solutions are based on network functions virtualization (NFV) technology to leverage the power of cloud-based computing. NFV is a network design that divides network functions into independent building blocks. These blocks can then be linked together to form a communication chain. NFV runs various operations using software and cloud-based servers, instead of depending on hardware for each network function.

Firewalls, intrusion detection software and wide area networks (WANs) may all be operated using NFV. SEACOM Business also offers virtual server hosting for effortless hybrid cloud enablement of these security solutions. This makes our hosted security solutions easier to set up and implement in businesses with several branches and remote offices throughout Kenya and Uganda.

Our hosted security is based on an award-winning UTM platform

SEACOM Business’s hosted security solutions are based on our award-winning unified threat management (UTM) platform. This platform performs numerous security functions, including firewall, anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-spam, intrusion detection, content filtering and leak prevention systems.

Our UTM platform is easy to set up and delivers all of the security capabilities a company needs from one device. It means that businesses can get the most out of a single provider and receive support from a single expert team. Furthermore, we provide a choice between managed or hosted security services.

These solutions and the UTM platform can be installed on-site and turned over to the IT department, or they can be run from SEACOM Business's secure cloud-based server. Our hosted security solutions provide businesses in Kenya with world-class protection and threat prevention against all modern cyber threats.
