Why Review Your Firewall Configuration?

Firewalls are considered the primary line of defense for an organization's network infrastructure. However, being at the boundary, they tend to become the primary targets for any malicious attacks.This line of defense has its own set of weaknesses that, if not addressed, could cause havoc in the network environment and compromise everyday business functioning. Here are just a few of the many examples of weaknesses in firewalls that tend to get exploited

The most common weakness we will ever see in a firewall. The Firewall Ruleset, if not configured in compliance to the industry-set standards, could pave a clearcut route for an unauthorized user to enter into the system.

The most common weakness we will ever see in a firewall. The Firewall Ruleset, if not configured in compliance to the industry-set standards, could pave a clearcut route for an unauthorized user to enter into the system.

Firewall Deployment

Issues with firewall deployment are commonplace. This could be because the firewall was not deployed properly to begin with, or if done well, was deployed at the wrong location. It's also possible that the number of firewalls deployed is insufficient to provide the optimum level of protection. Such deployment errors could render the network vulnerable.

Services Included

If you're utilizing a range of services within your system, certain ones might be susceptible to known vulnerabilities. These services would then bring the vulnerabilities to the firewall configuration, thus infecting the system and affecting the complete network. The protocols and packets exchanged with these services could also become a strong weakness for the system.

Software Upgradation

While keeping an eye on firewall configuration and deployment, one might miss out on the necessity of updating software that is present on the perimeter. This ignorance would mean welcoming hackers to compromise the firewall and network.
