Firewall & Network Architecture Review

What is Firewall Security and Network Architecture Review

firewall security

A firewall security review is a detailed analysis and test of a firewall that has been implemented to protect a client’s information, applications, systems and overall business operations. A firewall security review examines vulnerabilities associated with a specific vendor’s solution, susceptibility of the firewall to focused connection and information driven attacks and exploits, and miss-configurations that allow an attacker to overcome specific firewall protections.


Firewalls are complex systems that by their function restrict or grant network connectivity to and from the Internet for a company. The very process to configure and modify firewalls to support dynamic business requirements introduces the risk of permitting unintentional and potentially harmful access into or out of an organization’s network. Firewalls that are initially set up, configured and patched undergo constant change to support evolving business needs. 

The risks, threats and impacts of changes tend not to be fully considered particularly when business timelines and commitments become immediate. Firewall security reviews help the organization to verify that their firewalls adequately protect critical business information and data as required. Firewall reviews are a key requirement within a number of industry related standards and regulations, such as PCI and HIPAA.
