The True Value of Firewall Controls

Network environments have become so complex that a single misstep on a critical firewall can take the entire network offline and expose your business to cyber-attacks. Improperly managed firewalls create some of the greatest business risks in any organization. Often, the risks are things you don’t find out about until it’s too late.
One unique element about firewall-related risks is that they do not require sophisticated hacking skills to be exposed. Simple misconfiguration errors and oversights in the process of managing your firewalls can cause problems like opening the network perimeter to security exploits and creating business continuity issues. Add network complexity into the mix, combined with all the other duties you and your team are responsible for, it becomes clear that firewall management is a business challenge that needs to be addressed properly.
