Firewalls & Unified Threat Management Solutions

Unified Threat Management

Today’s businesses need more than a firewall to stop advanced malware threats from attacking the network. In order to thwart advanced and persistent threats, consolidated protection is necessary. Employing technology that provides features including intrusion prevention, antivirus, and application control without slowing network speeds or creating bottlenecks is vital. A Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution delivers the security and performance required by small and mid-sized enterprises, while reducing network security costs.


Firewall security blocks certain kinds of network traffic, forming a barrier between trusted and untrusted networks. It protects against malicious users, viruses, and worms that try to access your network.  A firewall can also hide information about your LAN from the Internet, as well as log traffic to and from the local network. Advanced Network Systems can help you choose a next generation threat management solution that provides all the powerful, multi-layered protection and ease of management your VA or WV organization needs.

Intrusion Prevention Systems

Intrusion Prevention Solutions (IPS) work in conjunction with traditional security solutions like firewalls and antivirus software to provide precise, real-time attack mitigation and detailed forensic analysis, all while allowing good network traffic to pass unimpeded. Advanced Network Systems’ IPS technology solutions offer a higher level of proactive, zero-day attack prevention as well as deeper insight into the activities and operation of your network.

Application Control

There's control – and then there's strangle-hold. You can't afford to let malicious or inappropriate applications through your defenses, but you don't want to hinder productivity with application controls that are too strict or wide-ranging. Advanced Network Systems' Application Control solution gives you highly granular control by category, application, or application sub-function to keep your network flowing and your environment safe.

Data Loss Prevention

Despite heightened awareness and increased regulations, serious data breaches continue to happen on a daily basis. Whether intentional or unintentional, data breaches end up costing millions of dollars annually in compliance and legal penalties, failed security audits, irreparable brand damage and lost customers.

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions allow companies to effectively discover, monitor, control and secure their sensitive data, both on the network, as it is used on desktops or laptops, and residing on end user systems and servers. Whether your data is intellectual property, personal, medical or financial information, Advanced Network Systems has a complete, cost-effective Data Loss Prevention solution to protect companies of any size.
