As many people know, firewall design entails far more than just configuration of the firewall. Processes that comprise an organization’s overall security policy inform decisions such as which firewall features are used, where the firewall is enforced, and ultimately, how the firewall is configured.

Firewall technology has evolved from packet filter firewalls to today’s next-generation firewalls, and at each stage, new services and solutions have emerged to address the expanding complexity of the cyber landscape—to protect resources and to stop cyberattackers from breaching the firewall for nefarious purposes. Today’s sophisticated firewalls incorporate a range of features and services that are the outgrowth of these stages of firewall evolution.
