    As a key component of your business’ IT security, a firewall acts as a guard against harmful traffic, protecting your data and preventing unauthorised access.

    Whether it’s through hardware, software, or a combination of both, a firewall should be at the core of your network, determining which traffic you let into your network and which you keep out.

    What is FortiGate Firewall?

    FortiGate, a next-generation firewall from IT Cyber Security leaders Fortinet, provides the ultimate threat protection for businesses of all sizes. Utilising purpose-built security processors and threat intelligence from FortiGuard, a FortiGate firewall delivers unmatched performance and protection while simplifying your network.

    Fortinet offers FortiGate models to satisfy any deployment requirement, from the entry-level FortiGate-20 series for small offices and retail networks to the FortiGate-1500 series for large enterprises.

    How Does FortiGate Firewall Work?

    In short, a FortiGate firewall works by examining the data that flows in to your network and verifying if it is safe to pass through to your business.

    Lower specification firewalls will typically examine this data by information such as its location and source. This information will then be evaluated against a set list of permissions to assess whether it can be allowed through.

    A firewall provides front line defence against security threats, however, as cyber criminals become more sophisticated, it becomes more challenging for just a firewall alone to defend against the myriad of cyber-security threats., which can be encrypted behind what appears to be a reliable source.

    In 2019, Gartner estimate that 80% of traffic to your business will be encrypted, with 50% of attacks targeting businesses, such as yourselves, hidden in encrypted traffic.

    With purpose-built security processors, working alongside top of the line threat detection from FortiGuard, FortiGate firewalls provide advanced protection, even from encrypted traffic, for your business.

    ” Being responsible for IT in an organisation which is very tech dependant is a real challenge, especially having no formal IT experience myself.  Having the Nouveau team at the end of the phone is a real-life saver and I have needed a life line many times.  I most appreciate the accessibility, knowledge and friendliness of the team. “

    ” The company I work for has been using Nouveau Solutions for the past 15+ years and I have had the pleasure myself to build up a good, close relationship with them for about 12 of those years.

    Nouveau Solutions have dedicated teams for each different area that are made up of very knowledgeable technicians and engineers that specialise in their specific area of expertise. It is due to this that I always feel confident that Nouveau Solutions will be able to deliver us any IT services that we may request from them (there has been a lot over the years).

    They have always gone above and beyond to deliver high quality professional IT services to meet any requirements that we throw at them within any timeframes that we may set.

    On top of the ad-hoc IT services we request from Nouveau Solutions, they also monitor, manage, maintain and support some of our network infrastructure and have always been on hand to resolve any issues that may be noticed via their monitoring or raised by us within a timely manner.

    We also purchase the majority of our IT equipment including hardware, software and licensing through Nouveau Solutions which is always at a reasonable price and always received within a timely manner.

    Since day one of our relationship with Nouveau Solutions we have been appointed to the same one account manager which has allowed him to get to know our business very well. The service that has been provided by him to us has been nothing but exceptional. He always comes across as knowledgeable in any business discussions that we may have and has always been happy to take the time to communicate with us, make us aware of anything that we need to be aware of, or provide us with updates on anything.  I have always had the impression that his main priority is to ensure that we are happy with everything that Nouveau Solutions provides to us and he will do anything to ensure that is the case.

    All in all, I have nothing but praise to offer for Nouveau Solutions and would highly recommend them to any company that was looking for an IT services company.  There are definitely no plans here to switch to a different IT services company for the foreseeable future.

    Here’s to many more years with using Nouveau Solutions! “

    ” Nouveau have been brilliant from start to finish – very professional and competitive with their service and pricing. We needed a large number of Firewalls to deploy across our global company over a very short time period and thanks to Jack’s excellent availability, Nouveau’s turn-around time was extremely swift, even with nearly no notice. Nouveau not only provided us with the hardware  – one of their competent technicians supplied us with some design work in the past to help with our data centre firewalls replacement project! Nouveau have been great to work with. “

    Hassan Ashraf | IT Service and Infrastructure Manager | Everlight Radiology


    ” In the summer of 2017, I approached Nouveau in the hope of finding a competent partner that could help us through an upcoming hardware refresh. A priority of ours was to discover a local business (within 20 miles) that excelled and specialised in HPE, Dell, Fortinet and Microsoft/Office 365 as we planned to refresh our whole core infrastructure,. This included storage, infrastructure hosting and networking (core, access and perimeter) for our headquarters and our other branches. After an extensive phase of speccing, detail planning and quoting, Andy Swain and his team were able to offer a “spot on” solution for our demands with a very high cost/value ratio. This project led to a very open and trusting partnership with Nouveau and made them our No.1 partner within IT. “
