Enterprise firewall

The challenge of enterprise firewall management.

The enterprise firewall is a critical element of enterprise security, but managing this essential technology can be a challenge for IT teams with constrained resources and competing priorities.

Firewall security is part of a multifaceted approach to protecting any enterprise. A high-level firewall can monitor inbound and outbound network traffic to identify and block suspicious activity. From external threats like hacking attempts and malware to internal threats like malicious insiders or data leaks, the enterprise firewall is highly effective at mitigating a significant number of risks and vulnerabilities.

However, managing and optimizing a firewall can be a resource-intensive task. From deploying, integrating and configuring firewall technology to monitoring traffic, performing upgrades and ensuring that the enterprise firewall is aligned with security policy, the effort of continuous firewall management can easily overwhelm an IT staff that may be struggling to keep up with other high-priority, strategic security initiatives.
