Firewall / Perimeter Security Packages
See the Difference
Don’t fall for the typical “Managed” service scam. They will promise you the world, but in reality you get very little value for the price you are paying. Everything they do is reactive. They barely know anything about your company or your needs. You’re just a ticket in their helpdesk system. And they do the absolute bare minimum to get you off their back.

Those “Other” Guys
Their perspective is very limited. They see you as a customer that owns a device that they manage, and their sole responsibility is to ensure that it is functional in the manner that it is configured. That’s all. Nothing more and nothing less. What happens outside of their managed devices is none of their concern. If your systems ever get compromised, they’ll shrug and deny any involvement or responsibility. Or pass the blame onto something out of their control. You’ll be left to pick up the pieces on your own.
