Irrespective of the size of council, there’s benefits to gain.. no longer worrying about ‘keeping the lights on’, our focus is now on developing our security practices and generating greater value.

NWaaS frees organisations from once impossible challenges…

Affordable Network without compromise

Cloud’s promise for delivering market leading cost-efficiency with best in class performance is realised for Networks with NWaaS. Bringing together best of breed enterprise technologies with Palo Alto Networks firewall security, Microsoft Azure and VMWare’s SD-WAN by VeloCloud, NWaaS intelligently delivers the very best of all worlds at an SMB price point.

On-prem reliability with Cloud efficiency

Gone are the days where services are solely provisioned within the confines of your organisation. As it’s likely you’re already benefiting from the utilisation of cloud delivered services, NWaaS is a perfect complement to enhance the reliability of core business services which used to safely reside within the boundaries of your network but are now delivered to you over the Internet (such as Telephony and Video Conferencing).

Cloud-enabled infrastructure

As your organisation increases its Cloud adoption, your existing hub and spoke Network architecture may no longer make much sense for your organisation.

If cloud-enabling your Network is the next check-point on your cloud journey, you will appreciate the ease and speed at which NWaaS can be deployed to both optimise the speed, and neatly smooth over your transition, to cloud delivered services.

Update platforms as-you-go

Adopting new platforms can often force businesses into making bold and drastic changes beyond what’s comfortably manageable. These revolutionary leaps can increase business risk as staff are often forced to quickly adapt to a new platform. Additionally, most businesses incur an increase in financial outlay with long-term supplier or technology lock-ins.

NWaaS enables your business to continue on your Cloud adoption journey at your own pace. Supported by Azure,  NWaaS offers tried and tested bolt-on pathways for further technology adoption with DR, backup, PaaS and security enhancements at your fingertips, allowing you to evolve at your own pace.

“We used Azured to completely change our IT infrastructure and couldn’t be more thrilled with the work they have performed.

“I have never before been happy with any IT provider. Confusion and things not working as we planned, as well as general lack of caring are rife within IT and Telco companies. So to say I am happy with Azured is the understatement of the century.

“Everything worked – not only as planned, but on time and it was so easy to deal with them it is unbelievable. Not only did they deliver what we asked in terms of functionality but suggested ways of doing it and then acted on it.”

The makings of Networks as a Service

The best of all worlds…

Microsoft Azure

A Cloud of the future, Microsoft’s annual investment of $1 billion into cybersecurity is a key contributor to the recent existence of secure and affordable network solutions.

The incorporation of Cloud to Networks means businesses benefit from the ease of scalability, cost efficiency and control over their own growth.


Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) works to simplify and enhance network connectivity and performance.

Through link aggregation, packet steering, constant Layer 7 performance monitoring, traffic shaping, centralised management, automatic failover within seconds, Public Cloud acceleration and option to upgrade devices mid-contract, it comes as no surprise that SD-WAN is fast becoming recognised as the solution of choice for business networks.


Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) offers a centralised next-gen managed internet gateway in Azure.

Hosting Palo Alto Network’s market-leading firewall technology, FWaaS enables fast and secure remote access, packet inspection, zero day vulnerability, threat prevention & protection and centralised protection of critical services with local offload for trusted sites.

FWaaS also offers seamless enablement of additional security features such as SSL decryption, Global Protect MFA and Global Protect PreLogon.


A key feature of NWaaS by Azured allows you to be the master of your own carriage provider.

Proudly carriage agnostic, NWaaS empowers businesses with the freedom to choose the provider best suited to the task.

However, if required, our team can assist with providing ideal carriage configuration recommendations specific to your businesses needs.
