pdf2015 State of the Firewall Report1.74 MB

In late 2014, FireMon surveyed over 700 IT security practitioners to better understand current perceptions regarding the role that firewall infrastructure continues to play in the larger domain of network security management and access control.

With full results published in the 2015 FireMon State of the Firewall Report, survey respondents represented a wide range of professional skills, end user organizations and vertical industries. As indicated by survey results, three overarching trends were established:

  • Firewalls remain highly strategic, despite pervasive management challenges, driven by a wide range of requirements, most notably API integration and Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW) capabilities.
  • Next-generation devices are seen as critical and being adopted gradually, with a wide range of intentions and a broad set of related management and migration concerns.
  • Firewalls will play a significant role in emerging cloud, SDN and DevOps paradigms, which are viewed as major shifts in overarching matters of network evolution.
