Great ebook on managing and auditing firewalls the right way
on 30 March 2012
Whether you are a relative newcomer to penetration testing or a seasoned security professional you'll not be disappointed. This eBook provides an insightful look into what exactly is required for managing and auditing firewalls from initial design right up to implementation.
In the book the author pulls no punches in highlighting the fact that customers are invariably short changed by some companies providing sub-standard testing which ultimately put their businesses at risk.
One of the criticism of other firewall books, is that they tend to focus on one particular vendor (Cisco, SonicWALL etc), this book is vendor neutral which is very beneficial for companies that use many different types of firewalls in their estate.
If you provide penetration testing or audit firewalls, like myself you may come away reviewing your current testing methodology and include some of the recommendations and advise provided by the author.
As hinted in the book, this is the first in a series. I very much look forward to the next subject if it's as informative as this read.
