Firewall Ruleset Review

A Pentest People consultant led Firewall Ruleset Review provides a thorough and independent examination of your firewall configuration with the aim of discovering issues that could leave your network vulnerable to a security breach.

These issues may include problems due to overly permissive rules, historic rules, badly configured rules or rules that have been added to provide a workaround that now should be removed. Firewalls evolve over time and procuring a regular rule-set review provides you with the peace of mind that your firewall is continuing to operate as intended.

What are the risks?

A Firewall device acts as the gatekeeper to the corporate network and often is the first and last form of defence for most organisations who do not employ a multi-layer of security. An incorrectly configured firewall or one that exhibits a software vulnerability due to lack of patching can seriously affect the security posture of your organisation and allow a hacker total access to the corporate network.

How can we help?

Pentest People can perform a full Firewall Ruleset Review of all of your external facing Firewall infrastructure. One of our qualified consultants will use industry leading techniques to identify and assess the configuration of the Firewall, looking for any weaknesses that may lead to compromise.

The service would be delivered as part of the Pentest People Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS) and full access to the SecurePortal and other complementary tools would be provided.
