  1. Close firewall management interfaces to the internet. It is very common to want to manage your firewall remotely, and you can do this securely. However, exposing your firewall interface to the internet is not an industry best practice, and is not recommended by WatchGuard, a leader in firewall technology and a GBS partner.
  2. Update firmware: Start the new year right, with the latest firmware version to ensure your firewall is leveraging the best power, speed, reliability, and security available today.
  3. Change Passwords Now (and regularly) on hardware & software: Implement today industry best practice by changing passwords regularly. Using strong passwords, and changing them often, helps prevent lost or stolen credentials from being useful to bad actors.
