  • Patent number: 10944722
    Abstract: A novel method for managing firewall configuration of a software defined data center is provided. Such a firewall configuration is divided into multiple sections that each contains a set of firewall rules. Each tenant of the software defined data center has a corresponding set of sections in the firewall configuration. The method allows each tenant to independently access and update/manage its own corresponding set of sections. Multiple tenants or users are allowed to make changes to the firewall configuration simultaneously.

  • Patent number: 10341299
    Abstract: In a computer-implemented method for collecting firewall flow records, firewall flow records are received from a plurality of data end nodes of a virtualized infrastructure comprising a distributed firewall according to a collection schedule, wherein the collection schedule defines which data end nodes of the plurality of data end nodes from which firewall flow records are collected, a frequency of collection of firewall flow records from the data end nodes, and an amount of firewall flow records collected from the data end nodes. Firewall flow records received at a firewall flow record collection queue are processed, such that the received firewall flow records are prepared for storage at a flow record data store.

  • Publication number: 20180183760
    Abstract: Network firewalls operate based on rules that define how a firewall should handle traffic passing through the firewall. At their most basic, firewall rules may indicate that certain network traffic should be denied from passing through a network firewall or indicate that certain network traffic should be allowed to pass through the network firewall. Manners of handling network traffic beyond simply allowing or denying the network traffic may also be defined by the rules. For instance, a rule may indicate that certain network traffic should be routed to a specific system. Thus, if an administrator of a network firewall determines that certain network traffic should be handled in a certain way by a network firewall, the administrator need only implement a firewall rule defining how that network traffic should be handled in the network firewall.
