Firewall Management

Firewalls have long served as core components of most organizations' security strategies. However, the growth of security threats both in volume and severity have necessitated that organizations continually evaluate the effectiveness of firewalls that are employed to protect their sensitive data, while necessitating that organizations continually assess their ability to respond to rapidly-evolving threats.

Firewall management is extremely resource intensive and requires a high skill level. Because of the effort and complexity involved, a majority of firewall breaches are caused by the mis-configuration of firewall rules and policies themselves. Some of these rules and policies include:

  • New VPN users
  • Employee status changes
  • New partners
  • New applications
