How It Works

To get started with Managed Firewall Services, CenturyLink performs a comprehensive security review to ensure we understand your firewall needs, network and system topology, and security policies. We then use these details to help develop and define your firewall-specific security policies.

Once we ascertain your needs, we then configure, install, and manage your firewall systems. We can provision your service on a range of platforms, including network-based and virtual firewalls as well as dedicated appliances.
