Ensure the next generation firewall (NGFW) implementation is formally documented. The variety of features included in the tool require special care: use the checklist to verify that all implementation requirements are completed and the metrics tracker to gather evidence for future security investments. Use this tool to:
- Record which recommended implementation activities have been completed for each NGFW feature.
- Track NGFW metrics over time to establish baselines and to justify future network security spend.
Use this tool in conjunction with the project blueprint, Select and Implement a Next Generation Firewall.
