Proof Of Concept - Focus Points On Mid POC Call Before Final SLR

Hi community,

 

I'm wondering what you guys like to focus on when running a Proof Of Concept with the nextgeneration firewall?

 

For example, you are running a PoC in TAP mode for two weeks. At the half way mark you have a call with the customer to show them what kind of traffic and/or threats have been seen, usernames in the logs.

 

Do you mainly focus on App-ID, Content-ID, User-ID... or do you focus on the ACC tab and help customer navigate.

 

Do you show them the reporting aspect, be it custom and preconfigured?

 

What is your approach?

 

Thanks for the feedback community.

Hello,

While tap mode is good, I think vwire mode might be better. This article is pretty good, except for #2, yes a next-gen firewall is imperitive in todays world for protection.

Agreed.  vWire is always better as you get the actual data on the line.  TAPs can hide data/problems/etc.
