Departmental firewalls are available to provide a second level of protection in addition to the campus firewall. Departmental firewalls are required in some cases to comply with Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards.
Texas A&M IT provides equipment and support for departmental firewalls, installs and configures them, and acts as the point of contact for rule changes.
Departmental Firewalls run Packet Filter (PF), OpenBSD's TCP/IP traffic filtering system. This system creates a stateful firewall capable of complex rule sets.
See the Request
tab for information on requesting a departmental firewall.
