Linux Iptables Automation at its best – Elastic Firewall Manager


A firewall manager tool means freedom from tiring, repetitive actions for security managers, reduced costs for business owners, saving them a lot of the time and money that would otherwise go into firewall management and simply bad news for hackers.
Modern day hacking methods use automation to improve efficiency and scale attacks—which has, in turn, transformed hacking into a multi-billion dollar industry, branching out from online banking to bill payment and ecommerce. Even though malware targets the final user, casualties typically fall upon the website owners- who are legally bound to reimburse customers for fraudulent transactions.
A good firewall must now be able to stop automated attacks like site scraping, comment spam, application DDoS or vulnerability scans, so the need for firewall automation is a de facto requirement in setting coherent policies and efficient rulesets.
The “always on” mindset referencing to a holistic approach over a unified threat management, calls for a very leveled security at scale.

Robust vs. Flexible
A good firewall manager will balance robust monitoring and reporting with a flexible policy configuration, making it easier for administrators to review security policies developed by their peers.
Operating dozens and even hundreds of web servers can be a real challenge for many technology companies, not to mention that these servers may be located in different data centers or  different countries, but efw.io could spare you all the hustle. The centralized management suite designed by efw, which stands for Elastic Firewall, allows synchronized policies on multiple machines, even in the case of geographically dispersed devices.
