Firewalls Anyone running multiple firewalls in a complex, enterprise environment knows how difficult it can be to catch misconfigurations, avoid conflicting rules, identify vulnerabilities and meet auditing and compliance mandates.

(See how we conducted our test.)

We found that these products perform similar core functions: they retrieve configuration files of firewalls (and other network devices), store the data and analyze it.

They can also create automated compliance audit analysis and reports.
