Firewall Security Health Assessment
Enhancing Your Firewall Security
CDW knows that providing secured and flexible remote access to your workforce and trusted partners is pivotal to your organisation and productivity. CDW’s Professional Services Consultants will perform a review of your Remote Access Services from the ground up, providing you with insights into topology, security stance, bottle-necks, and potential risks.
Why Should I Assess My Firewall Security?
As solutions evolve and adapt to business demands, legacy configuration is often left behind, which over time can result in degraded performance and a weakened security stance. In addition, organisations often lack understanding of the traffic traversing their firewall and the protocols and applications that make up that traffic.
