In a world of increasing cyber-crime, it’s crucial for organisations to implement intelligent threat protection for their IT infrastructure, embracing automation to prevent modern external attackers from disrupting your operation.

HybrIT understand the modern threat landscape and the ever-increasing complexity and intelligence behind attacks on IT infrastructures. With well documented coverage of examples of organisations suffering from large scale disruption, data theft and being held to ransom, it’s so important to ensure that your IT security is a constantly moving target. Many organisations have implemented certain levels of firewall protection amongst other measures, however it’s now becoming a priority for IT leaders to implement solutions which keep attackers guessing, consistently evolving and always trying to stay one step ahead of the modern-day cyber-criminal.

To remain highly protected and one step ahead of potential threats, organisations need to work with a partner such as HybrIT to ascertain where potential weaknesses exist within their IT systems, then implement a solution which is always up to date and managed proactively. One of the key areas that should be considered are your Firewalls.


As organisations consider how to provide comprehensive visibility and advanced layer 7 security, including threat protection, intrusion prevention, web filtering and application control, they face a major complexity hurdle managing these point products with no integration and lack of visibility. Gartner estimates that by 2019 80% of enterprise traffic will be encrypted and 50% of attacks targeting organisations will be hidden in encrypted traffic to infiltrate networks or exfiltrate data, therefore employing HTTPS inspection is a requisite.


HybrIT recommend implementing Next Generation Firewalls that utilise purpose-built security processors and threat intelligence security services from AI-powered software to deliver top-rated protection, high performance inspection of clear-texted and encrypted traffic. NGFWs reduce cost & complexity with full visibility into applications, users and networks and provides best of breed security. As an integral part of your prevention and security measures, they can communicate within a comprehensive security portfolio as well as third-party security solutions in a multivendor environment to share threat intelligence and improve security posture.
