Firewall Security Audit Report

Compliance Report for Firewall Devices

Firewall Analyzer provides elaborate compliance report for the firewall devices and can be used for firewall security auditing. 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 report identifies all the firewall security related issues thus acting as a firewall security audit tool. This firewall configuration audit tool audits the complete firewall security and provides detailed firewall configuration analysis. It also provides a firewall security audit report and a firewall security audit checklist with an overall security rating. The firewall security audit report helps identify the security issues in the device. This firewall audit tool cross verifies the exsisting firewall rules against a preset firewall audit checklist. This not only measures the impact, but also rates the severity of the issue. With the firewall audit report, the easiness to fix the issue is also assessed. Based on the issues, the report recommends security best practices. This firewall configuration software categorizes the threats faced to various levels and recommends configuration and other changes to tighten the security of the firewall.

It rates the issues in five categories. They are: Critical, High, Medium, Low, and Info

This section of the report describes the security best practices. It consists of overview and recommendation. It covers the following areas:

  • Software
  • Services
  • Interfaces
  • Filtering
  • Authentication
  • Logging
  • Encryption

Device Configuration Report section

This section details the configuration settings of the firewall device.

Periodic Firewall Compliance Report Generation

The report is generated at periodic intervals and the report link in the UI shows the time, the compliance report was generated.

Instant Firewall Compliance Report Generation

You can instantly generate the Compliance report, any time you want.

Configure credentials / associate device profile to fetch Firewall configuration and rules

The firewall configuration analyzer module configures the device credential or assigns a credential profile to the device. On assigning a device profile or configuring device credentials, the compliance report will get generated automatically. Thus Firewall Analyzer acts as an efficient firewall configuration tool.

Importance of firewall security audits

Security audits play a pivotal rule in enhancing your network defenses by highlighting the vulnerabilities and sharing the status of compliance with regulatory mandates. This allows your network security admins to take adequate counter measure to bolster your organization's network security.

  • Unveiling Hidden Threats: Audits assess the misconfigurations, outdated rules, and conflicting policies in your organization that create security loopholes. This process helps pinpoint vulnerabilities that can be exploited by threat actors.
  • Enhanced Compliance: Many industries require organizations to conduct regular firewall security audits to assess your organization's compliance. These ensure your firewalls meet these requirements and stay protected against threats, and fines arising from compliance breach.
  • Proactive Threat Detection: Audits analyze logs and identify suspicious activity patterns, enabling you to take swift and address potential threats proactively. This helps to address security events before they escalate into security incidents.
  • Improved Network Performance: Security audits help highlight redundant rules and traffic anomalies. By identifying and eliminating them, audits can improve network performance and user experience.
  • Reduced Risk and Costs: Addressing vulnerabilities and improving security posture proactively can prevent data breaches, malware infections, other cyberattacks and the expensive fines that come with it.
