Cyber Security

Cogent offers our professional cybersecurity managed services for SMBs.


Velocity Firewall Managed Service

Hackers are always on the lookout for easy targets, and will often target company networks based on easily exploitable vulnerabilities and not just a company’s reputation, intellectual property or commercially valuable material. A firewall can be the difference between your network being compromised and a hacker simply moving onto the next target if they can't find an opening.

With Cogent's Firewall Managed Service you can secure your business for a simple monthly fee. Additional systems for high availability can be added with ease.

For a more comprehensive firewall managed service, including 24/7 monitoring, see our Firewall Managed Service.

Velocity Email Security Managed Service

Velocity Email Security Managed Service provides cloud-based inbound and outbound scanning of both message body and attachments, so you can protect your network from email-borne threats.

Cogent guarantees 99.999% clean email delivered.

Key benefits include:

  • Industry-leading accuracy;
  • speed to implement;
  • disaster resilience and overall value;
  • highly responsive local service and support;
  • Spam, phishing, virus and malware threat protection;
  • in-country email processing.

Cloud-based email archiving is also available for an additional monthly fee.

Velocity Endpoint Security Managed Service

Cogent's Endpoint Security Managed Service is an affordable, all-in-one solution provides endpoint security for key devices in your enterprise: PCs, Macs, Linux systems, physical and virtual systems, Windows tablets, as well as security for data in cloud storage.

For a simple monthly fee, Cogent will install and monitor endpoint security which provides:

  • Desktop firewall,
  • URL and Web Filtering,
  • Host Intrusion Prevention for desktop,
  • Device Control,
  • Full disk encryption,
  • File and removable media encryption.

These additional services are not intended as a replacement for existing technologies (such as BitLocker for Windows or Managed Firewall), but to add an extra layer of defence to your network. With the number of threats and threat vectors increasing each day, endpoint protection now needs to be more than anti-virus, so we have adjusted our managed endpoint security service to keep up with the evolving threat landscape.

Physical security
