Over the years, the role of the firewall has steadily evolved from protecting networks from external hacks and attacks to focus more attention inward – to identify and eliminate potential risks and enable compliance. Part of this evolution is a response to the shift in the threat landscape towards malware and intrusions designed to exploit vulnerabilities in applications rather than the network perimeter itself.
In addition, the growing obligation to provide a reasonable level of compliance, protect against breaches and data loss, and optimise network performance has also contributed to this inward shift.
