Policy Change Automation


When there are several firewalls, the firewalls are belonging to different vendors and the number of policy change requests are high then there is a need for policy change automation.

This process like a normal change process involves identifying a need for change, defining the desired outcomes of the change, developing a plan for implementing the change, communicating the change to relevant stakeholders, and monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of the change over time.

If the number of policy change requests is high, then the security team’s main activity becomes making policy changes, but it is an operational activity. Compared to other activities that must be done by the team this is a repetitive activity that must be automated.

The policy change actions if done properly includes segregation of duties principle and so includes approval process. Meaning, first the request must go to an approval

Opinnate’s policy change automation feature enables firewall admins to create regular firewall rules, clone IP access and implement group-based policies.

When applying these changes on firewalls the approval process will also be in place for the IT Security teams to make consideration regarding security policies and associated risks.
