Every enterprise needs malware defense, which involves many layers of protection like real-time network monitoring and log creation. A Firewall can protect against viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, adware, and ransomware. State-of-the-art network firewalls block malware and application-layer attacks and are equipped with integrated Intrusion detection systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention systems (IPS). These next generation firewalls react quickly and effortlessly to detect outside attacks across a whole network. Enterprises can set custom policies to better defend their network and carry out quick assessments to detect invasive or suspicious activity, and shut it down.
Check Point Next Generation Firewalls combine several security technologies along with a traditional firewall, into a single device. These devices regulate traffic entering the network by blocking unwanted connections, storing information pertaining to malicious connections in their traffic logs. ManageEngine provides Check Point firewall management as part of its comprehensive IT management software solutions. Company offers firewall analyzer that is OPSEC™ certified by Check Point.
Firewall analyzer manages reporting, analysis and archiving of logs for further interpretation. Check Point rule management by ManageEngine handles firewall policies and rules that control network traffic between a company’s LAN and the internet. Policies and rules determine whether sensitive data resides inside a company’s LAN or is being accessed from outside illegally by monitoring those rules in Check Point. Policy overview ensures reporting of monitored rules and identifying anomalies that could make a system vulnerable. These reports are saved as logs in a separate DB.
Reports help find ‘who’ made ‘what’ changes, ‘when’ and ‘why’ and notifies it to IT security of a company in real-time. Reports also periodically store configuration changes made in the firewall securely and analysis of the reports yield information about a firewall’s vulnerability and traffic to attacks, viruses, spam inflow, and blocked URL hits.
Trend analysis of reports provides insights on trends according to network traffic and companies can make informed decisions related to risk assessment, bandwidth management, traffic control, and ultimately the shape the structure of security in a network.
Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) required an effective firewall management solution to monitor its user’s network consumption. PEO’s day-to-day activity depends on the productive use of available internet bandwidth, which is being used by thousands of its members. To accomplish this, they had to monitor network traffic in real-time to restrict any non-business usage. PEO opted for ManageEngine’s firewall analyzer and was able to easily identify suspicious patterns in bandwidth usage and the root cause responsible for the sudden change in behavior. Firewall Analyzer solution saved their IT staff from the complexities of manual assessment of the raw logs to understand bandwidth usage.
ManageEngine is also preparing to implement a report generation builder using customized DB query to enhance the reporting solution, so that created reports can be scheduled to be exported as PDF, and XLS formats. ManageEngine is working on other security solution integration like Two-factor authentication, Threat analysis using AI and ML, Virtualization monitoring, New support for hardware monitoring, Enhanced user and admin controls, and VPN monitoring. The company’s offerings change constantly according to latest security trends and security requirements of enterprises because of its enthusiastic approach to new ideas every day.
