what software / hardware are you using for the firewall? you can check the the firewall software to check it's log, or you can use 3rd party software, like (Firewall Analyzer)
 it work on windows/linux and support the following hardware:
Firewalls: Cisco ASA, Cisco IOS, Cisco FWSM, Cisco PIX, CheckPoint, Fortigate, Juniper Netscreen, Sonicwall
    Proxy-servers: Microsoft ISA, NetCache, Squid
    IDS/IPS: 3Com X Family
    VPN: Cisco VPN Concentrator

Just make a report out of the information you get from the firewalls/IDS'es. make like "statistics" and stuff. bosses like that kind of reports.


thanks all of you
