Challenge

The client provides Enterprise IT and Cybersecurity services to a large customer footprint. This service operates and maintains firewalls for its tenants and performs over 100+ firewall change requests on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. The client did not have a method for performing firewall validation.

Context / Action

We Designed and Implemented a Firewall Assurance Program (People, Processes and Technologies) to ensure network security compliance by performing regular firewall automated and manual assessment to deter and prevent exposure to cyber-attacks.

The program maintained configuration management and logical diagrams for the entire firewall architecture and design. Once we identified all these requirements, we performed an extensive customer bake off with various vendors to provide the customer with recommendations for the best vendor which met the requirements.

We designed the Firewall Assurance Program to work side-by-side, with the firewall administrators, to validate changes to the firewall before configurations were implemented. This increased level of synergy ensured that vulnerabilities nor performance issues were introduced which impacted firewall operations and cybersecurity posture of the architecture.

Many vulnerabilities were discovered and fixed on firewalls which were assessed by the Firewall Assurance Program which showed immediate value add to the customer.
