The firewall is the cornerstone of any network security setup. But a firewall without the right configuration can cause a world of problems. On this episode of Ping, Firewalls.com Director of Sales Anthony Mercho tells Andrew & Kevin what to consider when it comes to specific configuration scenarios, why the setup wizard (and one size fits all) is a no go, what settings are generally best to avoid, and why the right professional configuration not only maximizes your security, but also your network performance.

In our headlines segment, we discuss a survey that says business leaders aren't showing their employees they take cybersecurity seriously, criminal charges against a former Uber security leader for trying to hide a cyber attack, and the idea that CEOs and other business leaders of the future will face consequences themselves for hacks.
