Central Management of 300 Firewalls and Router Access-Lists

It’s a controversial question how to adequately protect a constantly growing number of (virtual) servers. While the use of static access lists alone was considered insufficient by security people, networkers tend to dislike central boxes in the middle. SWITCH’s way to go is to use a combination of router access lists and distributed firewalls, implemented on the individual servers. Cavari, the newly developed management tool, allows to centrally end efficiently manage the hundreds of firewalls and tens of access lists.
