Firewalls Remain Strategic Security Investment

Firewalls, though an older security technology, still have a role as a foundational element of network security infrastructure, both today and in the future.

That’s the assessment from FireMon’s State of the Firewall 2014 Report, based on a survey of over 700 network security practitioners.

The study reveals that firewalls remain highly strategic to organizations’ current and future security strategies—with an overwhelming 92% of respondents indicating that firewalls will stand as a “critical” component of their security infrastructures over the next five years.
