Never let your guard down
With over 8,000 employees and worldwide office locations, this financial services firm deployed Skybox Firewall Assurance to centrally audit firewalls, protect its clients’ personal data and provide proof of compliance with PCI DSS. With Skybox Firewall Assurance in place, the organization is now able to:
Step 1 – Collect. Skybox Firewall Assurance automatically collects firewall configuration data, log files, and corporate security policies. A normalized firewall configuration repository is created, allowing fast and consistent evaluation of different firewalls. Configurations may be entered manually or collected automatically from existing configuration repositories.
Step 2 – Analyze. Firewall Assurance correlates firewall configuration and policy data with industry standards and firewall management best practices. Security and compliance gaps are identified and prioritized to show firewall administrators the areas of greatest concern.
Step 3 – Report and Act. Status reports are generated for different users in the organization. Network operations reports enable teams to optimize firewall rules and identify firewall misconfigurations. Corporate security teams can view firewall change assurance reports and validate the results of on-demand firewall audits. Overall compliance reports are generated for top-level executives.
