  • Security Administration
    Breakwater's security administration offers expert firewall administration services to our clients. This contract service is appropriate for small and large organizations that may not have the resources, expertise, or desire to administer their own firewall. Our experienced engineers can augment your IS staff during busy times or provide full-time administration of your Raptor or Firewall-1 firewall and other associated VPNs, at your site or remotely from Breakwater's Security Management Operations Center (SMOC). This ongoing maintenance service can free you up to focus your attention on your critical business issues.

    Security Product Phone Support
    Breakwater offers extended phone support contracts for clients who want access to Breakwater's experienced security engineers for their phone support. Our engineers have practical, real-world experience with Raptor and Firewall-1 firewalls, Security Dynamics authentication products, and know how to efficiently administer their features. This support contract may be used to augment the standard vendor support contract on an as-needed or full-time basis.

    Firewall Logfile Analysis & Reporting
    Firewalls log a wealth of threat and usage information in addition to maintaining a client's security. If the logs are not regularly reviewed, this information goes untapped. Breakwater will analyze the client's firewall logfiles daily and weekly, then summarize the threat and usage findings in a management level report that is delivered electronically and can be easily read by security staff and upper management.

    Vulnerability Analysis
    The Breakwater Vulnerability Analysis will determine the security of the client's external network, and will show whether their systems and networks are susceptible to widely-available tools which can expose their data. Our experts will scan the systems the client specifies, and will deliver a report which outlines the exposures, if any, and the measures that may be necessary to reduce the vulnerability.

    Outsourced Security Management
    Breakwater provides custom firewall and security outsourcing based on contracted service levels for availability, administration response time and surveillance. Breakwater's outsourced firewalls include all necessary hardware, software, and configuration to maintain firewall service at those contracted service levels. Unlike ISP-based outsourced firewalls, you are free to select or change ISPs at any time. This service is intended for clients who want to eliminate large capital budget expenditures for security infrastructure and staffing, and who value technology change protection.
