Firewall Rules Set Review


We all rely on firewalls as the core of the defense system for our network. But is your firewall fit for the purpose? Is it delivering optimum performance? Is it correctly configured? Let’s review this with Firewall Rule-Set Review.

Firewall forms the perimeter of the system’s network defense mechanism. Being the boundary makes it the most reliable defense and hence increases the need of a timely “health checkup”.

Securing the Security of the Secure Firewall

The Firewall Rules-Set Review at SecureLayer7 takes an insider view at the system with full access to the system’s configuration with the aim of providing the optimum review result thus attaining maximum security at the perimeter itself. SecureLayer7 deeply analyses the firewall’s entire configuration as per industry best practices, including guidelines from PCI-DSS and Center for Internet Security.
