What is a firewall?
A firewall is a mechanism that protects a private network against unauthorised access. You may create a firewall either using hardware or software, or a mix of both. Unauthorized internet users, including intranets, cannot access private internet-connected networks by firewalls. All messages entering or leaving the intranet (the local network to which you are attached) should be firewalled, checking every message and blocking those that do not satisfy set security standards
The word "network security" encompasses a wide range of technology, equipment, and procedures. It is a collection of rules and configurations that use software and hardware technologies to safeguard the integrity, confidentiality, and accessibility of computer networks and data. Every business should have some network security measures in place to protect itself from the rising landscape of cyber attacks that are occurring throughout the world.
What is a firewall audit?
Due to standards like SOX, PCI-DSS, and HIPAA, network security audits have lately gained a lot of traction. Even if you don't have to meet any of these requirements, your business connections with partners or customers may need you to demonstrate that your network is secure. Firewall audits, on the other hand, are recommended for a very good reason when it comes to compliance requirements. They boost your chances of detecting flaws in your network security posture and identifying areas where your rules might be adjusted
You have no chance of being successful when it comes time to audit your network if you don't know what's in it. As a result, before going through an Associate in Nursing audit, make sure you gather all necessary security policies and firewall logs (and then compare the logs to the firewall rule base to see what's really being utilised). Verify that you have a network and firewall topology diagram. Gather any past audit documents, as well as firewall rules, objects, and policy updates. Examine the essential firewall marketer data, as well as the OS version, the most recent patches, and the default configuration.
