Knowing which rules are needed or being used is a time-consuming task

Knowing that all firewall rules are up to date, periodically checked, and threats immediately repelled is reassuring. If potential risks are evaluated in a timely manner and reports are up to date and immediately insightful, you can confidently focus on all the other issues within your organization that require your attention. With Universal Firewall management this is possible.

Although a firewall alone, in today’s world of Hybrid systems of On-Premises, Hosted, and Cloud solutions, is not enough it provides the first line of defense. A firewall is an essential part of the infrastructure and enables secure communications.

It is a common situation where managing a firewall over time has become quite a challenge. Knowing which rules are still needed or still being used can be a time-consuming task.

Working according to fixed procedures, recording changes, and keeping systems up to date are essential parts of how we work. This requires expertise and an extremely accurate working method. Not only for setting up new systems or maintaining existing architectures. Even after systems have been phased out, old firewall rules must be cleared up to prevent new systems from being accessible to unauthorized parties.

With Universal’s expertise in Fortinet security, our clients have trusted Universal’s reliable services for more than 15 years. It has been the foundation of security since our first private Cloud.
