Firewall Auditing FAQ

Auditing a firewall involves evaluating its configuration, access rules, and overall effectiveness to ensure it aligns with security best practices and organizational requirements.

The purpose of a firewall audit is to assess the effectiveness and security of an organization’s firewall infrastructure. Firewalls play a crucial role in network security by monitoring and controlling incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules.
