1 Firewall End-to-End Network Access Protection for System i

2 Overview

3 Firewall A solution which secures every type of access to and from System i, within & outside the organization

4 Market Need Hacking Open TCP/IP environment has increased System i risks Many remote activities are now easy Initiating commands Installing programs Changing data Moving files Limited ability to log/block unauthorized access Internal Fraud FBI Study: the most significant threat to an organization's information systems comes from inside Control and follow-up on user access - a necessity

5 Firewall Features Airtight protection from both internal and external threats Covers more exit points than any other product Protection from User Level to Object Level Protects both incoming and outgoing IP addresses Unique layered architecture - easy to use and maintain Excellent performance - especially in large environments User-friendly Wizards streamline rule definitions Historical data statistics enable effective rule definition Best-Fit feature formulates rule to suit each security event Detailed log of all access and actions Simulation Mode Tests existing Firewall rules Enables defining rules based on the simulation Reports in various formats: e-mail, print-out, HTML/PDF/CSV

6 Firewall Scenario

7 Monday, Midnight “OK, I’m bored… Let’s do some quick hacking…” Rob Black Hacker

8 5 Minutes Later “Got it! I’m inside IronTrust Bank systems. I really need a new sports car… Let’s extract a few hundred thousands...

9 Tuesday, Midnight “OK, now let’s try SMART Insurance… this should take about 5 minutes! Rob Black Hacker

10 One Minute Later Glenda Wright, Information Security Manager, SMART Insurance “Our Firewall just blocked a break-in attempt. I’ll have the identity, time and IP address in a minute.”

11 5 Hours Later “Hey, what are all those security layers? And all these protected exit points… I can’t get through… there goes my new car!” Rob Black Hacker
