Best Practics for Automating Next Generation Firewall Change Processes

Palo Alto Networks’ next generation firewalls (NGFW) enable security to be managed with extensive policy granularity. However, replacing or migrating traditional firewall policies to next-generation firewall policies is a complex task that often involves thousands of rules and definitions.

AlgoSec seamlessly integrates with Palo Alto Networks NGFWs to simply and intelligently automate App-ID and User-ID security policy change workflows, business application connectivity mapping and compliance reporting across on-premise and cloud environments.

Hear Mosh Itah, Product Line Manager at Palo Alto Networks and Edy Almer, VP Product at AlgoSec discuss how to:


•Centrally manage security policies across multiple devices through Palo Alto Networks Panorama
•Automate policy changes, including hands-free policy push directly to Palo Alto Networks' devices
•View and manage your security policies holistically across a mix of traditional and Next Gen firewalls and cloud security controls
•Allow large geographically-dispersed teams to cooperatively manage security policy changes

  • Migrating and Managing Security Policies in a Segmented Data Center Recorded: Dec 7 2017 48 mins
    Prof. Avishai Wool
    Network segmentation is an effective strategy for protecting access to key data assets, and impeding the lateral movement of threats and cyber criminals inside your data center. With network virtualization, such as VMware NSX and Cisco ACI now a reality it's far simpler to set up granular security policies for east-west traffic within the data center. Yet the added granularity of securities policies creates significant complexity.

    Presented by renowned industry expert Professor Avishai Wool, this technical webinar will provide strategies and best practices to help organizations migrate and manage security policies efficiently within a micro-segmented data center.

    In this webinar, Prof. Wool will discuss how to:

    •Identify and securely migrate legacy applications to a micro-segmented data center
    •Effectively define and enforce security policies for East-West traffic
    •Manage the micro-segmented data center alongside traditional on-premise security devices
    •Identify risk and manage compliance in a micro-segmented data center
    •Use network segmentation to reduce the scope of regulatory audits
    •Identify and avoid common network segmentation mistakes
  • Managing application connectivity securely through a Merger or Acquisition-US/UK Recorded: Nov 14 2017 38 mins
    Edy Almer, VP Product at AlgoSec
    When going through a merger/acquisition or a divesture process, companies typically need to move some of their applications to a different data center or to the cloud, merge duplicate applications, or replicate applications to new entities, and decommission the unnecessary ones in order to streamline operations and costs.

    In practice, firewall policies will need to be changed or migrated to support the new connectivity, applications, servers and often new firewalls – without creating security risks, outages or compliance violations. This is a very complex project that, if not planned and implemented properly, can have a very serious impact on business operations.

    Presented by Edy Almer, AlgoSec’s VP of Products, this new technical webinar will discuss best practices and a real-life use case, which will demonstrate how companies can successfully manage application connectivity through an M&A or divestiture process.

    Key topics include how to:

    - Automatically discover and map existing application connectivity flows prior to making any changes
    - Proactively assess the impact of every change to ensure it does not break connectivity, affect compliance or create a security hole
    - Define and execute the necessary security policy changes for traditional firewalls and cloud security controls
    - Deliver unified security policy management across the new enterprise environment

  • Firewall Rule Recertification - An Application-Centric Approach [US/UK] Recorded: Oct 31 2017 27 mins
    Asher Benbinisty, Director of Product Marketing
    As part of your organization’s security policy management best practices, firewall rules must be reviewed and recertified regularly to ensure security, compliance and optimal firewall performance. Firewall rules which are out of date, unused or unnecessary should be removed, as firewall bloat creates gaps in your security posture, causes compliance violations, and impacts firewall performance.
    Manual firewall rule recertification, however, is an error-prone and time-consuming process.

    Please join our webinar by Asher Benbenisty, AlgoSec’s Director of Product Marketing, who will introduce an application-centric approach to firewall recertification, bringing a new, efficient, effective and automated method of recertifying firewall rules.

    Join the webinar and discover:

    •Why it is important to regularly review and recertify your firewall rules
    •The application-centric approach to firewall rule recertification
    •How to automatically manage the rule-recertification process

This insight will help ensure better collaboration between security and the development teams right from the start and reduce the time, cost and risk of deploying applications into production.

    In this webinar Professor Wool will cover how to:

    •Identify and map existing applications and their connectivity flows to establish a baseline
    •Adjust application connectivity for each stage of the DevOps lifecycle – without coding
    •Automatically deploy connectivity throughout the development lifecycle using templates
    •Proactively assess risk and compliance throughout the DevOps process
    •Manage and maintain security in the production environment

  • Migrating application connectivity to the cloud Recorded: Mar 22 2017 31 mins
    Edy Almer, VP Product AlgoSec
    Migrating applications to the cloud or another data center– without creating security holes or causing application outages– is far easier said than done.

    For starters, mapping existing application flows across complex enterprise environments pre-migration – which is critical in order to re-establish the correct traffic flows post-migration – is extremely difficult. A single mistake can cause outages, compliance violations and create holes in your security perimeter. Moreover, cloud security architecture is fundamentally different from physical networks, making it extremely difficult to translate application connectivity flows to the cloud security controls, and then manage network security policies cohesively across the entire hybrid enterprise environment. All in all, migrating applications is a complex, tedious and error-prone process that takes months and often compromises security, compliance and business agility.

    Presented by Edy Almer, AlgoSec’s VP of Product, this new webinar will explain how to simplify and accelerate large-scale complex application migration projects, while ensuring security and avoiding business application outages.

    The webinar will cover best practices on how to:

    - Automatically discover existing application connectivity flows
    - Analyze, simulate and compute the necessary changes – even between different network security technologies such as traditional firewalls and cloud Security Groups
    - Execute the necessary firewall rule changes, and mass-migrate relevant connectivity flows
    - Deliver unified security policy management across the hybrid enterprise cloud environment
