GMS Workflow, Auditing, and Change Management ensures the accuracy and the compliance of policy changes by enforcing a rigorous process for configuring, comparing, validating, reviewing and approving policies prior to deployment. The approval groups are flexible, enabling adherence to company security policy while reducing errors, improving efficiency, and ensuring high security effectiveness. Auditing and reporting of policy changes assures that the firewall complies with compliance regulations. Like GMS' other policy management features, a single GMS can scale to thousands of firewalls, supporting the largest of distributed enterprises. With GMS workflow automation, all enterprises will gain agility and confidence in deploying the right firewall policies, at the right time, and in conformance with compliance regulations.
