Perimeter Security & NGFW by Ascend Technologies

Your First Line of Defense Against Cyber Threats.

Good security starts with a strong perimeter. Our Perimeter Security solutions, including cutting-edge technologies like Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW), offer robust protection against external threats attempting to breach your network.

The days of ‘set-it-and-forget-it’ firewalls are long gone. Today, policies need updating, traffic needs monitoring, and hardware needs patching.

With Ascend’s team behind your perimeter security, you receive expert configuration, worry-free maintenance, and 24×7 support, so you can rest assured that you’re secure.

your resilience starts with proactive defense

A Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) is an advanced security tool that not only blocks unauthorized access to your network but also offers enhanced protection by examining deeper layers of data. Unlike traditional firewalls that only check where data is coming from and going to, NGFWs can identify specific applications and users, detect potential threats, and respond quickly to keep your network safe. This comprehensive approach provides stronger security and better visibility into what’s happening on your network, making NGFWs essential for protecting against modern cyber threats.

Continuous Monitoring & Threat Detection

Our security team continuously monitors your network traffic for suspicious activity and potential threats, such as unusual patterns that might indicate a security breach.

Rapid Incident Response & Remediation

In the event of a security incident, our team swiftly responds by investigating the incident, containing the threat, and implementing corrective actions to prevent future occurrences, ensuring minimal disruption to your business.

Proactive Security Policy Management

We configure and manage security policies tailored to your business needs, ensuring optimal protection. This includes regular updates and adjustments to firewall rules based on the latest threat intelligence.


“Instead of thinking of the perimeter as one type of access control around the “edge” of the network, think of the perimeter as any place where you make an access control decision.”

Wondering how it all works? Here are some key features you’ll benefit from with this service:

Deep Packet Inspection

Our NGFW examines the data within each packet, beyond basic header information, to detect and block sophisticated threats such as malware and intrusions. This allows for more accurate identification of malicious activity.

Application Awareness & Control

Firewalls identify and control applications regardless of port, protocol, or IP address used. For example, they block specific applications like peer-to-peer sharing while allowing others like web browsing.

Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)

NGFWs include integrated IPS capabilities to detect and prevent attacks in real-time. This feature actively scans for known threats and exploits, providing a robust defense against network intrusions.
