Firewall policies and rules control the traffic between your company's LAN and the internet. So, how they work determines whether your sensitive information remains inside the company's domain or gets out into the world. Firewall Analyzer allows you to monitor the effectiveness of the rules in Check Point. Use the policy overview report to get a snapshot of these different rules. You can also get a specialized report on the top rules that are used to govern enterprise traffic, or use the log report to identify anomalies that could make your system susceptible to security threats.
This report helps you find 'who' made 'what' changes, 'when' and 'why'. Not only that, it alerts you in real-time on your mobile phone when changes happen. This report ensures that all the configurations and subsequent changes made in the Firewall device are captured periodically and stored in the database.
With Firewall Analyzer, you can access predefined reports that help with analyzing bandwidth usage and understanding security and network activities. Study your firewall's vulnerability level using reports on top denied hosts, blocked URL hits, attacks, viruses, affected hosts, spam, and receiving hosts.
Trend reports in Firewall Analyzer trace patterns in network behavior and bandwidth usage over time. Analyzing trend reports offers insight into the nature of website traffic or network traffic, which helps you make better decisions on capacity planning, business risk assessment, bandwidth management, traffic shaping, and the security posture of your network.
VPN trend reports show trends in the number of VPN connections accessed through the Check Point firewall on a historical and current basis. VPN trends are especially useful in troubleshooting VPN connections, and identifying security risks.
Firewall Analyzer provides a unique way to monitor the internet traffic of your network in real time. Firewall traffic data is collected and analyzed to get granular details about the traffic through each firewall. You don't need any probes or collection agents to get these traffic details.
Firewall Analyzer evaluates logs from different network firewalls to measure network traffic. Firewall logs are collected, archived, and analyzed to get granular details about traffic across Check Point firewall devices.
You can minimize the use of bandwidth by monitoring the internet activity of your employees. Fine-tune firewall policies to block or restrict bandwidth-guzzling websites, which helps control employee internet use. This will help ensure there's plenty of bandwidth to keep your business running smoothly.
Firewall Analyzer for Check Point provides elaborate compliance report for the Firewall devices. The report helps to configure the Firewall rules, which will prevent potentially dangerous access to network and allow only those network hosts that are required. The issues are assessed and the results are presents as statistics.
Apart from exhaustive firewall reports on network security, Firewall Analyzer offers comprehensive alarms and notifications. Generate email or SMS alarms for any security criteria of interest as well as when bandwidth breaches a set value. These alarms can trigger a script to achieve various threat mitigation activities. Alarms are also displayed in Firewall Analyzer's UI.
