GTS Telecom, one of the main IT&C services providers with latest technologies in Romania, enters the FWaaS (Firewall as a Service) market by developing a platform that enables customers to secure their Internet connection and physical or virtual servers hosted in the data centers of their supplier. The new service contributes to managing in a more flexible way of the GTS Telecom’s clients’ cyber security.
Integrated into GTS’s infrastructure, the new FWaaS platform allows to increase the protection level against cyber-attacks without allocating additional resources from the client’s side in terms of purchasing of high-performance equipment and expensive licenses.

The technological solution addresses all companies that uses an Internet connection or Cloud and Colocation services provided by GTS, allowing them to analyse and filter information transferred over the Internet, to protect the company’s and employee’s data, and to reduce the risk exposure of cyber-attacks.

GTS Firewall as a Service, the new cyber security solution, offers this adaptability that our customers need to be able to safely operate online so they can focus more on the growth aspects of their business. We believe that this service will attract total revenues of approximately 200.000 euros in the next 2 years.” stated Răzvan Stoica, CEO GTS Telecom.
