local firewall neccesity
Posted on 2014-03-24
Can anyone give a bit of a laymans tech free management friendly summary of the necessity of enabling the local windows firewall on internal (private network) windows servers. Realistically, if only necessary services are running, how much easier would it be for an attacker to gain access to the server if there is no local firewall enabled? And can you think of any reason why admins would not enable the firewall for internal servres, does it cause operational/support issues?
