What is a Firewall Security Review?




Firewalls have been the first line of defence in network security for over 25 years. They establish a barrier between secured and controlled internal networks that can be trusted and untrusted outside networks, such as the Internet.

In the growing Internet and Digital Economy, firewall has continued to serve as their go-to security appliance. As the threats constantly evolve and increase in number, there are more devices connected to networks than ever. A firewall must be able to keep up with the latest threats, while maintaining high performance, even when all controls are turned on. Traditionally, a firewall was put at the perimeter to determine which traffic to let into the network and which to keep out. Today, it’s recommended to have a firewall at the core of your network as well, as threats do slip in and spread.

What is a Firewall Review?

Firewall Security Review (FSR) is an in-depth assessment of the security and performance of your stateful firewall or next-generation firewall. A FSR includes a review of system performance metrics, management plane configuration and the security of the running rule set and compares these with industry best practice and vendor hardening guides. The customer is provided with a written report covering the findings and recommendations in order of priority.
