Organizations across the globe implement firewalls to monitor and control incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. A firewall typically establishes a barrier between a trusted internal network and untrusted external network, such as the Internet. However, over time the effectiveness of your firewall may be diminished as new threats emerge. Adding new network technologies and applications that are allowed to pass through the firewall can impact the ability of the firewall to protect internal networks. Furthermore, firewall reviews are a requirement of numerous regulations and frameworks, including PCI-DSS and HIPAA.
