PLEASANTON, Calif. - January 22, 2015 - ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced firewall policy anomaly reporting for Firewall Analyzer, its security log analysis and firewall device management software. Using this new feature, security professionals can identify and rectify anomalies in their firewall policies and thereby secure their networks from external IT attacks. These reports empower security administrators to optimize policies and plug all security holes as well as optimize the performance of their firewalls.
"In our constant endeavor to meet and surpass our customer requirements, we have been strengthening Firewall Analyzer," said Pravinkumar Rajendran, product manager for Firewall Analyzer at ManageEngine. "These new policy anomaly analysis reports provide the necessary teeth to tackle the security holes in your firewall. The security administrator can apply security heuristics of the enterprise to optimize the firewall policies. In addition, this version of Firewall Analyzer doubles the speed of log analysis and generates reports quickly."
Duplicate, shadow and redundant firewall policies pave the way for compromises in network security. Hackers look for these holes in the policies and exploit them to carry out various attacks on the network.
Now, Firewall Analyzer can help the security administrator analyze the policies and discover the anomaly. The admin can then remove the detected anomaly in the policies to plug the security holes in the firewall device. A firewall with strong policies - and without any anomalies - ensures the network is secured.
The logs generated by firewalls keep increasing day by day. To keep up with the growing workload, analyzer software must speed up its processing capabilities. Recognizing this need to expedite alert and report generation, the latest version of Firewall Analyzer has doubled its log processing speeds.
Finally, to keep abreast of developments in the firewall market, Firewall Analyzer has added support for iPrism and Huawei devices.
Firewall Analyzer 8.2 is available immediately for $395. A fully functional, 30-day trial version is available for download at https://www.manageengine.com/products/firewall/download.html.
