At Data Connect, we’re security focused, offering end-to-end cyber security services. This means we’re your security partner as well your network specialist. With the flexibility of having a fully or co-managed service and 24×7 support, and with the option of adding our managed detection and response (MDR) service, you can rest assured that we’ll maximise your investment.

Opting to work with us gives you control over and visibility of your security posture, plus the external verification that such an important asset is both secure and efficient. Not only is our team fully certified by renowned vendors but also they have the practical security experience and threat knowledge that can be translated into the relevant configurations and security settings.


As the reliance on network infrastructure is ever-increasing, the complexity and importance of configuring and maintaining these devices becomes far greater. While uptime is the main priority, this can leave you with compromised configuration, resulting in windows of exposure and the heightened risk of a cyber attack. Ensure that optimisation and performance are at the forefront by utilising our managed service, which provides peace of mind.


Access the vSOC Connect Console for complete transparency and control over your cyber security. View key metrics, drill down on specific devices and manage support tickets all in one place.


We work with a large portfolio of security and network vendors, such as Palo Alto Networks, Fortinet and Check Point. When recommending technology, integrity is vital, which is why we only recommend tech we’ve tried and tested first.


To ensure business continuity, we deliver a proactive and responsive approach to firewall management. We diligently monitor the uptime of devices, troubleshooting problems rapidly when they arise and continuing until a solution has been found.


To boost the performance and security of your devices, we deliver a plethora of service features, such as unlimited security patching, regular security health checks, rule-base reviews and frequent backups.


Maximise your security with round-the-clock security incident and alert monitoring from our MDR service, vSOC Alert. This add-on is overseen by our experienced SOC team and is powered by cutting-edge technology, Google Chronicle, taking your security to the next level.

One common issue is a zero or minimal feature adoption. This means that your firewall may have the latest features but are not being utilised. Often, the reasons why they are not being utilised is either that they have not been configured or, simply, not been turned on.

According to Gartner Research, 95% of all firewall breaches are caused by misconfiguration and not flaws. Therefore, it is essential to adhere your firewall to best practises on a regular basis in order to keep the security posture of your next-gen firewall at a maximum level.

At Data Connect, we provide customers with a portfolio of firewall and network services including:

  • Secure network design
  • Network segmentation
  • One time health checks | rule-review | feature optimisation
