FirstWave occupies a unique position in the security software solutions market as it provides a platform for the delivery of a range of market leading security software via the cloud, to customers of telecommunications companies.
Specifically, FirstWave integrates advanced security products from Cisco, Fortinet and Palo Alto Networks into its own cloud security platform which enables delivery of white labelled cloud security services through Australia’s largest telecommunications company – Telstra.
FirstWave CCSG is a virtual multi-tenanted gateway that allows telcos to sell fully featured point security services to enterprise and government customers in Email (SEG), Web (SWG) or Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW) or as a fully featured integrated content security gateway with rich control and analytics.
The CCSG is designed to provide the cost benefits of moving to cloud technology, the resilience required in today’s high availability communications, flexibility with multiple deployment options and the capacity to be scaled to hundreds of enterprises with thousands of users.
They are typically bundled with other telcos' services to deliver one stop response, support and remediation where necessary.
Importantly these solutions are integrated with Productised Service Packages that are prescribed and well-defined, delivered through a repeatable set of workflow management tasks and activities by professional service teams. These teams are responsible for design, transition (including deployment and integration, testing and handover) and deployment of services in a customer’s security environment. These premium service packages provide customers with a proven deployment process that controls costs and ensures quick and pain-free cloud deployments.
