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.
