Firewall rules must be reviewed and recertified regularly for an organization to stay secure, ensure continuous compliance and gain the optimal firewall performance. Firewall rules which are out of date, unused or unnecessary should be removed, as firewall bloat creates gaps in your security posture, causes compliance violations, and decreases firewall performance.
However, manual firewall rule recertification is complex, time-consuming and prone to errors.
Join Asher Benbenisty, AlgoSec’s Director of Product Marketing, on a special webinar introducing an application-centric approach to firewall recertification.
In this webinar Asher will cover:
Firewall Rule Recertification
In the past, the only way to recertify a rule was to manually review the comments field of each firewall rule. At a minimum, the comment should include the name of the original rule requester and the rule’s purpose. Due to the manual nature of the process, it is prone to errors and difficult to maintain.
An Application-Centric Approach to Firewall Rule Recertification: Challenges and Benefits
As part of your organization’s security policy management best practices, firewall rules need to be reviewed and recertified regularly to ensure security, compliance and optimal firewall performance. Firewall rules that are out of date, unused or unnecessary should be removed, as firewall bloat creates gaps in your security posture, causes compliance violations, and impacts firewall performance. In the past, firewall rule recertification was often performed manually; an error-prone and time-consuming process. The new application-centric approach to firewall recertification offers an efficient, effective and automated method of recertifying firewall rules.
