SECURITY HARDENING FROM COMPUTER CARE

The purpose of security hardening is to speed up the flow of data through your firewall by removing poorly implemented rules. We will:

• Identify and remove duplicate rules
• Consolidate and remove last-minute rules
• Disable any unused modules

WHY DO I NEED SECURITY HARDENING?

Your firewall is at the forefront of your company’s internet security. From time to time, admins will add ‘last-minute’ rules to get around specific firewall issues. If these rules are left in place, as they often are, they can pile up and clog the performance of the firewall, slowing down the flow of data. Regular security hardening is necessary to clean the arteries of your firewall and keep it performing at its best.

HOW DOES SECURITY HARDENING WORK?

We will examine your firewall rules, looking for duplicates, which we will consolidate, and last-minute rules, which we will remove. Where there are modules in the appliance that you don’t use, we will disable them. All of this will enhance the performance of your firewall.
