FireMon has published a report entitled Quantifying the Value of Firewall Management, conducted by research firm Aberdeen Group. The report illustrates the increasingly complex problem of firewall sprawl and quantifies the median savings after implementing a firewall management solution of more than three million dollars for a typical mid-size organisation.
