Security & Network

SecurityX Gateway

With unrivalled security and insight, the Layer3 SecurityX Gateway brings a fresh new approach to the way we manage your firewall, respond to threats, and monitor what’s happening on your network.

This is a ‘next gen’ Firewall-as-a-Service brings together high-performance Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) with Layer3 monitoring and management to stop the latest hacks and attacks dead in their tracks.

SecurityX Gateway is deployed as a managed service and fully integrated with your ManageX Prime solution. Layer3 provides you with the hardware, licensing, management, monitoring and we support your requirements to protect your business.

Expose Hidden Risks
Superior visibility into risky activity, suspicious traffic, and advanced threats helps you regain control of your network.

Stop Unknown Threats
Powerful next-gen protection technologies like deep learning and intrusion prevention keep your organization secure from the latest advanced threats like ransomware, cryptomining, bots, worms, hacks and breaches.

Intercepting Exploits
SecurityX Gateway uses technology like exploit prevention and CryptoGuard Protection to identify malware exploits and ransomware before reaching your network. Combined with an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) if a hacker is trying to exploit a network vulnerability, SecurityX Gateway will stop it cold.

The SecurityX GATEWAY solution includes:

  • Cloud Sandbox
    • Identifies suspicious payloads coming in through phishing, spam or web downloads and sends them away for machine learning analysis and execution.
  • Synchronized App Control
    • Identifies hundreds of unknown, evasive, and custom applications to prioritise the ones you want and block the ones you don’t.
  • Cloud App Visibility
    • Identifies all browser applications and cloud services to get any ‘shadow IT’ and at-risk data threats under control quickly.
  • User Identity
    • Industry leading authentication options and user-level enforcement for threat and intrusion protection, sandboxing, application control, traffic shaping, web filtering and routing.
  • Secure VPN
    • A full suite of standard remote access and site-to-site VPN technologies, plus our unique remote ethernet device tunnel VPN option and free remote access clients.
  • Business App Protection
    • Protects critical applications like Microsoft Exchange or Sharepoint with simple, pre-defined policies.


Synchronized Security

    A unique new adaptive security solution from Layer3

    Synchronized Security creates the ‘Heartbeat’ to enable a coordinated response to advanced ransomware attacks between the Security Gateway appliance and the end user’s device. Security information is shared and acted on automatically across the system, isolating infected endpoints before the crypto threat can spread, and slashing incident response time by 99.9%

    The role of firewalls in protecting against sophisticated attacks has evolved. A firewall is no longer there like a medieval moat and castle wall for your protected network. We are now at a point where you can’t necessarily trust who or what is operating within the proverbial castle walls.

    Zero Trust
    This is what we call a ‘Zero Trust’ situation. Essentially it means that devices and users on your network need to establish or prove trust, and if something proves untrustworthy – take action.

    Synchronized Security changes the playing field by using shared telemetry between your SecurityX Gateway and endpoint computers to respond to an active adversary or threat on the network. When any kind of attack is detected, the endpoint Heartbeat status changes and triggers an automated response that has the firewall coordinating and synchronizing a defence.

    Not only will the Synchronized Security system cut-off network access for the compromised device at the firewall, it will also advise all healthy endpoints on the network to isolate and ignore all traffic originating from the compromised host. It’s the ultimate emergency response strategy, for any network.

    The Synchronised Security solution includes:

    • Stop Ransomware.
    • Zero Trust Security.
    • Reduce Incident Response Time by 99.9%.
    • Isolate Infected Endpoints.
    • Automated Exploit Prevention & Response.
    • Root Cause Analysis of Security Issues.
