Every service available on your firewall is another doorway to a potential breach. Monitoring and closing unnecessary ports can help reduce your attack surface, as well as the workload associated with cleaning up vulnerabilities that might exist on the services.
With Firewall Scanning, we highlight each type of service using risk indicators to help you prioritize which ones are exposing you to the greatest risk. And by consistently monitoring for new services coming online, you can make sure to put in the appropriate controls and scan them as necessary.
A firewall is a network security system that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. A firewall typically establishes a barrier between a trusted network and an untrusted network, such as the Internet.
A firewall scan will monitor the firewall for unauthorized changes, detect exposed high risk services on the firewall and inventory the services on the network for compliance.
