August 12 2016 - Supported Estate.
This month a UK-based Telecommunication, Media and Technology Specialist with a global firewall estate of 10 firewalls sought a new support partner for their existing FortiNet firewalls. GISS is pleased to report that we successfully won the support contract. GISS will be providing responsive, professional and helpful telephone, email and remote configuration support as required - whilst at the same time providing 24x7 SNMP monitoring of the firewalls - collecting traffic bandwidth, memory usage, cpu usage, session count and session count rate data - all in order to facilitate better security and management of the firewall provisioning with the organisation.

July 22 2016 - A shop for the converted.
GISS assists global ISP in migrating a household name clothes retailer's firewalls from Juniper to FortiNet firewalls.  Two datacentre-based legacy Juniper SRX650s are being retired to be replaced by two FortiGate-1500Ds (80Gbps of firewall and 11Gbps of next-generation firewall). GISS provided the firewall configuration conversion.

May 12 2016 - Anyone for Cyber Threat Assessment Program (CTAP)?
GISS launches GISS Cyber Threat Assessment designed to provide organisations with a detailed look into the type and amount of cyber threats posing risks to their networks which cannot be detected by their existing security solutions. In collaboration with FortiNet, GISS is offering its threat assessment program to organisations free-of-charge. Through the assessment process, the FortiGate high-performance next generation firewall will be installed within the customer or prospect network, where it monitors the application traffic traversing the network for intrusions, malware and malicious applications that could collectively cause massive risk to the network, giving attackers access to a company's most sensitive files and database information. At the end of the data collection period, a detailed risk assessment report will be generated, using FortiAnalyzer, that provides an analysis of the application traffic, user productivity, network utilization, the overall security risk, and the related business risk, as well as detailed, actionable mitigation recommendations.
