The firewall has come to exemplify network security. While an overall security strategy requires a harmonious integration of people, process, and technologies to reduce risk, thereâ??s no doubt that firewalls can be a very valuable security tool. Cisco Systems' PIX firewalls have gained market leadership by demonstrating a mix of functionality, performance, and flexibility. The objective of this book is to help you gain a deeper knowledge of Cisco PIX Firewalls. Whether you have administrative responsibilities or are studying to pass an exam such as the Cisco Secure PIX Firewall Advanced (CSPFA), this comprehensive guide will be of value to you.
