Executive Summary

Network-based firewall services (NBFW) are gaining momentum. By their location in the cloud, NBFW services offer advantages related to scalability, availability, extensibility, accessibility and maintainability. Also on the list of potential benefits are compelling cost advantages. Yet, the decision to move to NBFW is based on more than simple return on investment. It is also a trust decision. Achieving an acceptable level of trust comes through paying close attention to service level commitments, the credentials and references of the service provider, network infrastructure, and security staffing options.
