Security administrators can add, modify, or delete a rule, and directly push these changes to multiple firewall devices using Firewall Analyzer. Simplify firewall policy management by automating firewall rule administration.
With Firewall Analyzer you can perform in-depth impact analysis for a proposed new rule to help you determine if the new rule is going to negatively impact the existing rule set. You can identify threats, understand risks, remove anomalies, and optimize the proposed new rule.
Manually documenting all firewall rules and reviewing them on a regular basis is a time-consuming task. To solve this issue, Firewall Analyzer fetches the entire set of rules written in the firewall and provides a detailed report. Along with this, it also provides a list of outdated and unused rules.
Firewall Analyzer evaluates various rule interactions and anomalies to provide suggestions on rule position. By correlating the number of rule hits with rule complexity and anomalies, it can estimate the performance improvement for a suggested change.
Firewall Analyzer helps identify rule anomalies, which tend to have a negative impact on firewall performance. Removing these helps optimize the efficiency of firewall rules.
