SolarWinds Firewall Security Manager calculates the critical hosts exposed to dangerous services based on ACLs, routing, NAT rules and anti-spoof settings and isolates the rules that are responsible for flagged risks. Choose from standard security templates, or customize your own, to automatically assess your rulebase. SolarWinds' security analytics are far more comprehensive than ad hoc testing can ever be — helping you cut through network complexity with ease.
Take a look at the audit tool voted the most comprehensive, intuitive and easy to use by so many network and security engineers.
If left without consistent review, your firewall rules are sure to drag down your security posture. Especially if the rulebase contains many rule overlaps or rules blocking dangerous services (which tends to be the case in open network environments where the desire for open policy has to be reconciled with a policy to protect certain critical assets), then it becomes virtually impossible to determine the impact of each rule manually.
SolarWinds offers the automated audit solution voted the most comprehensive, intuitive and easy to use by over 300 network and security engineers. Once downloaded, it takes seconds to install and perform audits that evaluate every possible risk contained in your firewalls and routers. Hardening your devices is a straightforward task based on the rules that are found to enable dangerous services to internal addresses. SolarWinds builds a model of the device using the interfaces, objects, access lists, address translations, VPNs, routing rules, access-group statements and other constructs that control how the IP traffic flows through the firewall. Using this model, SolarWinds provides you:
- Automated analysis on over 120 out of the box checks based on standards from NSA, NIST, SANS and others.
- Customizable security profiles that allow you to base your audit on unique business requirements.
- Change report that shows how your security profile is affected by rule changes.
Designed to compliment the audit process, SolarWinds' reports are fully exportable from the system to maintain a clear separation of duties. Reviewers are not required to have direct access to devices. The Firewall Security Manager Security Audit solution is licensable for any number of firewalls to support both small and very large environments. Use it together with other components plus the NCM integration for a really powerful firewall management solution.
