Find answers to frequently asked questions about Deft Managed Firewalls, a network security service that makes it easy to deploy essential network protections across all of your critical gear.

Firewalls aren’t expensive, but inexperience is.
Why do I need Deft to manage my firewall?

Our network engineers actually know what’s up when it comes to managing firewalls. We own and operate our own private global IP network, so managing a firewall is easy by comparison. We’ve seen it all before and know just what to do. 

Can I co-manage the firewall with Deft?

Nope. But once you see how good we are at it, you won’t want to.

Do you offer high-availability configurations?

Of course.
