As the changing business and technology environment warps traditional notions of the network perimeter, threat actors capitalise on this uncertainty. With the modern environment now consisting of a multitude of disparate devices, applications, cloud instances and users – security teams struggle to manage such complexity, let alone integrate it into the strategy of the organisation they work for.
Sapphire provides advanced Network Perimeter Security solutions which give security teams full visibility of their exposure from different connected access points to help them address even the most sophisticated threats. Deployed across this sprawling attack surface, it provides full visibility of risk in real-time to enable more effective alerting, triaging and remediation.
Comprehensive: Have visibility of attacks on all connected assets in your environment, regardless of whether they are hardware, software or human borne. This includes IoT, cloud, internal threats, applications and more.
Advanced: Combat complex emerging threats with a next-generation platform incorporating layered detection capabilities.
Consolidated: Manage threats to the network from a single cloud-based console purpose-built to reduce the workload on front-line teams and report in real-time.
The firewall determines which traffic will be permitted to enter your network based on a number of factors such as detecting malicious traffic. A next-generation firewall as described by Gartner is a “deep-packet inspection firewall that moves beyond port/protocol inspection and blocking to add application-level inspection, intrusion prevention, and bringing intelligence from outside the firewall.”
The role of an IDS is to detect and then alerts administrators to malicious or suspicious activity.
In addition to the features provided by an IDS, an IPS solution will block the attack before alerting administrators to the breach.
An effective antivirus or endpoint detection and response solution will provide additional defence in depth against cyber attacks.
Takes into consideration the data in the header of each packet and then chooses to allow or block the traffic.
Network security that protects while filtering messages at the application layer.
Intuitive packet filtering that monitors active connections to determine which network packets to allow through the Firewall.

Defending your network against malware requires a layered approach to security. A firewall can help protect against various types of malware including viruses, worms, trojans, spyware, adware and ransomware.
Perimeter security controls are generally required for regulatory compliance and are often mandated to protect in-scope systems from the internet or exposure to the environment. The configuration of these controls and associated security policies play a crucial role in protecting the organisations network. The NCSC recommend robust network security controls as part of their 10 steps to cyber security. In addition to this, network perimeter security has an important role in other standards such as Cyber Essentials.
