Q

Are firewalls enough to protect my storage?

If I have a firewall, why would I need to implement any added security measures for my storage networks?

A firewall protects an enterprise from some of the unauthorized intrusions coming in over the Internet connection. The firewall does not protect the enterprise from attacks from inside the enterprise and attacks coming in from connections other than the firewall.
