The firewall is in the front line of defense against network attacks. Your firewall controls the traffic moving in and out of your organization’s network. To secure your network, you need to proactively optimize your firewall rules.To determine what security incidents happen in your network, you have to analyze your firewall logs. This is a two-pronged approach to strengthen your network security: you need a firewall analysis solution that provides both firewall policy management capabilities and exhaustive firewall log analysis and reporting.
Firewall Analyzer analyzes policies to:
Firewall Analyzer provides the following security and traffic reports:
Firewall Analyzer is FortiGate monitoring software that not only monitors FortiGate firewalls, but also offers network security features. The tool extracts the full potential of FortiGate devices to secure the network.
Firewall Analyzer monitors FortiGate firewall policies to generate policy management reports. It collects and analyzes the FortiGate firewall logs to get security and traffic reports.
The tool's FortiGate performance monitoring capabilities enhance the Fortinet firewall security policy deployment. It identifies the unused rules that are potentially vulnerable and recommends cleaning them up. It analyzes anomalies amongst the rules, and offers recommendations on how to effectively reorder rules to eliminate anomalies. It also analyzes the impact of new rules on the existing rules and suggests changes to the new rule to limit the impact.
With all these features, you can optimize FortiGate device rules.
FortiGate Policy Optimization Report
Firewall Analyzer, a Fortinet firewall monitoring tool, continuously monitors the compliance of FortiGate firewalls with regulatory standards. You can generate compliance reports at any time, including when you need to submit reports for internal and external compliance auditors. The compliance standards reports are:
FortiGate Compliance Standards Report
The tool provides a policy and configuration change management report from which you can find out who made changes to the firewall, what commands were executed when making the change, and when. This will give a clear picture of firewall policy and configuration changes.
Apart from the report, you also get alerts in real time if someone makes a change. This helps you know about changes instantly, so you can carry out a quick analysis to find out whether the change was necessary.
FortiGate Change Management Report
Firewall Analyzer, a FortiGate firewall traffic monitoring tool, generates traffic reports. The exhaustive bandwidth information provided by the firewall is fully utilized by the FortiGate log monitoring tool to provide extensive traffic reports.
You can use the FortiGate firewall bandwidth monitoring reports to augment bandwidth. It generates FortiGate firewall user monitor reports.
Live bandwidth usage: You can find any spikes in the bandwidth in real time, and take instant remedial action to channel bandwidth optimally.
User-wise traffic: The user-wise report provides at-a-glance information about the top 10 users consuming bandwidth and shows bandwidth consumption of all users when expanded. You can analyze the reason for high consumption of bandwidth, and take necessary measures to optimize its use.
Protocol-wise traffic: The protocol-wise report will indicate when any sparingly-used protocol is consuming more bandwidth than average for each protocol. Protocols like video streaming consume more bandwidth, limiting the bandwidth required for other business processes. If Telnet and FTP protocols are being used excessively, it can indicate a network is vulnerable to attacks.
Country-wise traffic: If you find the traffic is from a region with a track record of network attacks, you can take protective measures to reduce the traffic.
VPN reports: View the big picture of VPN usage. You can find who is using a VPN, which VPN user group is using a VPN, and which users have been denied VPN access.
These will help you prioritize critical business bandwidth usage.
