Selling IT on getting the most out of a new firewall
We bought a next-generation firewall, as I had hoped we would. The real trick, though, was getting the IT department to take full advantage of all of its advanced functionality.
A few months ago, we put a loaner Palo Alto Networks firewall in place to monitor our corporate network as a proof of concept. I was psyched about how this firewall could give us much greater visibility into application data and aid us with threat detection and prevention, URL filtering and advanced malware analysis.
