This week’s network security tip focuses on the importance of governance for zone traversal. When it comes to network security architecture, there must be a clearly defined, enforced and socialized list of guidelines surrounding which protocols and data are permitted to enter or exit specific zones. AlgoSec’s Security Engineer, Kyle Wickert explains this further…
“This will allow for a clear understanding across the organization as to what can be permitted and what can or cannot be processed in terms of a firewall change request. It is also important to ensure that these guidelines account for both ingress and egress data flows. As an example, organizations may not want to permit clear-text protocols from exiting a development network or they may want to eliminate direct egress access to web services to ensure all outbound web traffic is filtered/inspected.”
