Research from Gartner suggests that, through 2020, 99% of firewall breaches will be caused by simple firewall misconfigurations.
Blue Spruce Technologies offers Firewall Auditing services that provides an overview of your firewalls current state including basic penetration testing.
Firewalls are designed to be an organization’s first line of defense against cyber attacks. By limiting the traffic that crosses the network boundary to only authorized traffic, a firewall protects many potentially exploitable internal programs from danger.
Many of today’s firewalls are considered Next Generation Firewalls that also include a variety of add on security options such as Intrusion Prevention Systems, Anti-Virus, Application Controls, WEB Filtering, DNS Filtering, Certificate inspection etc. If not carefully maintained, these settings may not be enough, leaving you exposed.
In addition to your firewalls configuration state, monitoring of your firewall is a key element to ensure your network is secured and notifying you of issues that exist within your environment.
