SmartWorkflow provides a formal process of policy change management that helps administrators reduce errors and enhance compliance. Changing business needs produce a constant stream of requests to change firewall security policies. These changes can have far reaching implications if not done correctly including: slower firewall performance, network downtime, increased security risks, and lack of compliance with corporate and industry standards. Enterprises that have multiple firewall administrators and an environment of frequent changes need an automated solution that helps them review and authorize policy changes against approved configuration standards. Check Point's SmartWorkflow software blade automates policy change management with visual traceability and full auditability.
