Demise of firewall is a long way off, according to recent survey results.
Firewalls still remain a crucial element within network security regimes. According to the Firemon survey, conducted among 700 IT security practitioners, only a scant 4 percent of organizations reported that firewalls are less critical than in years past or not critical at all. Meanwhile, 58 percent of organizations said that firewalls are as critical as they’ve always been. And 37 percent reported that they’re actually more critical now than they’ve ever been.
