Implementing and managing cyber security controls is complex, expensive, and resource-intensive. The typical enterprise spends between 20-60 hours every week buying, deploying, configuring, monitoring, and managing dozens of security hardware and software tools. OPAQ’s Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS) solves this complexity challenge while providing enterprise-grade, cloud-based firewall protection that is affordable, flexible, and simple to manage. It’s the easy button for security.

Next-Generation Firewall From the OPAQ Cloud

OPAQ FWaaS offers advanced enterprise-grade protection against a variety of threats, including viruses, malware, spyware, unauthorized log-ins, denial of service (DoS) attacks and more, while making this previously unaffordable level of security accessible to organizations with limited IT security resources:

  • No more deploying and managing the life cycle of those appliances.
  • No more settling for “good enough” security protection, because the cost of managing the life cycle of those infrastructure components is eating away at your budget, security personnel, and other resources.

Why OPAQ Firewall as a Service (FWaaS)?

Advanced on-demand protection.

OPAQ provides the most advanced Next-Generation firewall protection available today.

Cost-effective security solution.

OPAQ clients have reduced costs by as much as 40%, and are able to better leverage their limited security personnel for essential security priorities. The built-in integration, automation and orchestration of the OPAQ Cloud reduces and eliminates costs associated with needing to buy, test, integrate, and manage firewalls.


The benefits of the cloud are applied to your security, which means your security is agile and adaptable, designed to instantly mold to the needs of your business.

Predictable investment.

OPAQ’s subscription-based service makes it easy to know what your security investment is and eliminates costly up-front and lifecycle replacement costs.
