Firewalls are designed and implemented to control access, whether that access is inbound or outbound. At the core of the firewall is the policy, made up of rules, that enforces what access is permitted or denied. Over time, if not frequently reviewed, firewall policies can contain unused rules, errors, unnecessary complexity, and excessive undesired access. Here at SecureLAN, we specialize in managing firewall rules. Healthy firewall policies help to increase firewall performance increase security and decrease risk.
Maintaining an effective, efficient and correct firewall policy is a continual process. Along with the initial clean-up, we provide recommendations on how to maintain the policy. We also review the firewall policy periodically to ensure its health.
