Firesec™ is an automated solution for network device rule base and configuration analysis and compliance readiness. No matter what role you play in your organization, Firesec has something unique to offer.
Are there any rules that permit traffic from my internal IP addresses to the Internet?
Have I opened up risky ports such as Telnet (TCP 23), FTP (TCP 21), RDP (TCP 3389) to any of my servers?
What traffic is allowed between my internal IP addresses and my DMZ?
Do I have any rules which contradict each other (Shadow rules)?
Do I have rules, which are no longer in use (Unused Rules)?
Do I have rules, which are subsets of each other (Redundant Rules)?
What objects have been created but are not being used in any rules?
Analyze & Optimize Rule Base
Over years, the rule bases that controls your network devices gets clogged and clumsy, as they are over burdened with the rules which are obsolete, redundant and insecure. To achieve improved performance, stouter security and compliance with regulations, you need to clean up those rule bases. Firesec helps you in optimizing your rule base by generating comprehensive reports which helps you identifying and removing the bloated and unnecessary rules. In addition, the automated processes help you to optimally design and implement new rules.
Uncover Unused Objects

Administrators are well aware of the fact that over time rule base tends to become complex, as they contain rules that may be obsolete or incorrect. Rule base reviews play a critical role in ensuring the ongoing analysis of the rule base. It evaluates the rules from your network devices to determine whether the security risks exist in the configuration, unwanted rules making database hefty, and if there are vulnerabilities allowed through the network devices for high risk prone services.
It’s a monotonous, erroneous, and prolonged process to prepare your firewalls from the audit perspective. As your rule bases are constantly changing, so it’s difficult to put all regulations in the continuance compliance for the point-in-time exercise. Having multifarious rules and ACL’s across various security devices, and voluminous updates constantly, makes it practically impossible to prepare for an audit manually.
Customized User Dashboards
Getting the view of overall security posture of your organization is really a boon. Firesec allows users to customize their dashboard by adding widgets. With this, you can configure the links, graphs and charts, which displays the exact information of your network devices configuration analysis right on your dashboard.
Cherry Pick Report Sections
In-depth analysis of the rules, provides you with the clear statistics of the rules usage. This statistic can be used by administrators to discover the adequacy of the respective rule, while implementing the security policy for an organization. So, from the rule base analysis, the administrator can easily take actions against the rules, which are unused, or moderately used. Also, can add new rules to meet the security policy requirements. Configuration analysis report provides you information about misconfigurations and/or sub-optimal configurations. This information helps the administrator to correct the problems of existing configurations and hence eventually leads to optimize the firewall performance.
Multi Vendor Support
Different enterprises make use of network devices that belongs to varied hardware vendors for different purposes. This leads to the network complexity and makes the configuration management process quite obscure. The security administrator needs to invest their crucial time to manage the configuration of these devices systematically. So, there is a requirement of a consolidated network configuration management solution, which not only simplifies administrators' task but also saves your money. Firesec supports configuration management for devices from various hardware vendors.
Sometimes network device configurations are revised without notice or consent. These random changes can result in causing various network issues. Firesec performs comparison of configurations and displays a statistical report that consists of changes that were made. This concede you to rapidly and confidently reverse any undesirable changes.
Log and Hit Count Analysis
Firewall log analysis makes you aware of the security threats and traffic behaviour. Security log reports of firewall analysis helps security administrators to visualize network threat scenarios and guide them to accordingly plan their strategy to protect the organization’s data.
