Today’s organizations rely on highly available, secure computing environments to efficiently and safely conduct business. Firewalls are a key component of a secure network and must be managed properly to ensure they protect your critical information assets.

Firewalls are configured to allow “good” traffic in and to keep “bad” traffic out. Firewalls are updated continuously to support changing business requirements such as:

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

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.
