Skybox Security and SANS Sponsor 'Firewall Change Management' Webinar

'Don't let one error change everything'

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ --


An effective firewall change management process is a must-have for organizations with large firewall deployments. Many organizations rely on time-consuming and error-prone manual procedures to define, evaluate, and verify firewall changes.  Often, these processes are completely fragmented – with different tools and data used by the network and security teams.  With firewall changes, every rule or configuration change can block access to a business service – or introduce a security hole.  Effective firewall change processes are necessary to improve IT efficiency and maintain business continuity, security standards and compliance.  This webcast focuses on the best practices required to implement a streamlined and automated firewall change workflow process in a large IT organization.


SPEAKERS include:

  • Ravid Circus, Worldwide Director of Professional Services, Skybox Security
  • Michelle Johnson Cobb, VP of Worldwide Marketing, Skybox Security
