RALEIGH, N.C. — Network Management Partners, which offers computer, server and network installation and maintenance services, is launching its own firewall device for network security.

The Blockade Firewall hardware is offered as part of a managed service offering.

“The Blockade allows us to fill a large void in the industry, said John David Helms, founder and president of NMP. “Our service is now expanded to not only include firewall system monitoring and management but also a perpetual hardware warranty as long as the client maintains our service. The Blockade is truly a hardware-as-a-service product that is tailor made for our customers and those businesses needing a cost-effective firewall solution.”

The company has more than 60 clients across the Southeast and overseas.
