Tips on firewall software upgrades and refresh cycles:

  • How often does your company go through hardware and software refreshes?
  • Be sure to confirm with the vendor what its patch program is, when it goes through major software refreshes and how often a forklift (new hardware) upgrade is required.
  • Security issues can arise from slow patch cycles, and industry-laggard issues can result from slow software refreshes.
  • On the other hand, rapid software or hardware refreshes can raise TCO significantly, so the right balance needs to be struck.
