--  Change Management: Monitors changes, reports them in real-time and
    maintains a comprehensive, accurate audit trail for full accountability.
    
--  Security Policy Optimization and Cleanup: Analysis and clean-up of
    complex policies enables tighter security and maintains a tidy and
    efficient system that improves security and performance.
    
--  Risk Analysis and Business Continuity: Powerful simulation and risk
    analysis to identify potential security risks, ensure compliance with
    organizational security standards, and prevent service interruptions.
    
--  Cross-Platform Visual Monitoring: Intuitive, graphical views of
    firewall policies, rule bases and configuration changes for Check Point,
    Cisco and Juniper firewalls.
    
--  Auditing and Regulatory Compliance: Thorough auditing of firewall
