+ - Firewall Rulesets Still a Problem?->

Submitted by

dasButcher writes "Security admins used to complain endlessly about the complexity of managing firewall rulesets. But those complaints have diminished as management consoles improved and the firewall has taken become less important in the grand scheme of IT security. But several new products are coming to market to audit and optimize firewall rulesets. As Larry Walsh writes in his blog (http://blogs.channelinsider.com/secure_channel/content/network_security/firewall_ruleset_management_still_an_issue.html), it's not clear whether this is really a problem or the last vestige of the old perimeter firewall. So Walsh asks, "is firewall ruleset management still a problem?""
