Firewalls have become victims of their own success
These ubiquitous network security devices are the first line of defence for the business network, examining an endless stream of network traffic against a set of established rules. The exponential growth in web applications, e-commerce, communication tools, and networked business applications has led to a similar exponential growth in firewall complexity. Organization today, has a single firewall configured with thousands of rules to define network access policies, allowed services, routing rules, and more.
Maintaining secure firewall configuration and good health has become a challenge for most experienced network administrators
Not managing these effectively leads to:
- Potential risks to Security with no visibility for unknowns
- Exposures to network availability & performance due to overtly complex and outdated rules
- Lack of proper impact analysis can lead to outages or abends in production
- Lengthy, resource hungry and costly management of Audit & Compliance
