The Firewall Risk Assessment provides corporate security managers with a detailed report of the threats to corporate security, ranking and prioritising the dangers to business critical assets based on system vulnerabilities.

The Firewall Risk Assessment offers a powerful auditing and analysis tool to identify the risks facing any organisation and the steps that need to be taken to eliminate each risk. By offering a granular level of visibility into firewall and router configurations, enterprise customers can enhance their level of security, increase operational efficiency, and maintain compliance with corporate policies and regulatory requirements."
