This week’s network security tip focuses on reducing complexity when it comes to firewall policy management. Our latest tip comes from our own James Dowell, a security engineer here at AlgoSec who suggests the following:

“Don’t always assume everyone editing the firewall adds the same nomenclature or has the same skillset. Creating specific rules or adding new specific objects often adds complexity to a rulebase and makes it harder to understand.”

Thanks James for the tip! For more in-depth information and tips related to this topic, watch this video where Professor Wool examines how to use object naming conventions to reduce firewall management overhead.
