Firewall Management

eScope Solutions’ Security Engineers analyze how a network is used and then design security solutions to protect it.

Firewall Installation Solutions

Nearly all firewalls are purchased with security in mind, but the manner of security is rarely defined. eScope Solutions’ Security Engineers analyze how a network is used and then design security solutions to protect it. eScope Solutions Firewall Solutions are designed on the Default Deny Principal. Default Deny is a type of firewall rule set in which the default condition of the firewall is to deny ALL connectivity - from anywhere, to anywhere. This means that the default; setting, configuration, access level, service availability is set to deny access. Access is then given on an as-needed basis for both ingress and egress traffic. Access is only granted when absolutely needed and authorized.
