How to Avoid Common Firewall Misconfigurations: The Human Error

According to Gartner, 99% of firewall breaches will be caused by firewall misconfigurations, not the device itself. A misconfigured firewall offers similar protection to having no firewall at all. This is a human problem, not a hardware problem. Gartner predicts that by 2025, lack of talent or human failure will be responsible for over half of significant cyber incidents. The number of cyber and social engineering attacks against people is spiking as threat actors increasingly see humans as the most vulnerable point of exploitation.
