The University of Arizona

Border Firewall Security Services

Overview   

The University of Arizona border/perimeter firewalls are intended to prevent unsolicited and frequently malicious traffic from the Internet at large from hitting the University's campus network. By default, a small list of TCP/IP ports associated with frequently vulnerable services are blocked on the perimeter. It is strongly recommended that network managers work with UITS SecOps to establish a higher level of firewall protection than the minimal baseline provided, either by setting up a managed local firewall or opting to have their subnet blocked on the perimeter firewall.
