First line of defense

A Firewall is regarded as the first line of defense for any network, and letting the 'bad guys' in can result in disastrous consequences for any organization. That's why it's important to carefully select the appropriate Firewall solution and configure it suitably.

Reading through this book, we observed that it's much more than a technical reference. It touches on the basics of many security aspects. The case studies and workshops on configuring firewalls also make this a hands-on guide.

All kinds of firewalls have been generously covered in this book. For instance, entire chapters have been devoted to specific firewalls like PIX, configuring Solaris as a secure router and firewall, and so on. That's why this may also be considered as a comprehensive Technical manual.
