Windows Firewall Service Disabled Audit

Find Windows Firewalls That Are Disabled or Not Starting Automatically

Services are a core Windows function designed to enable the creation and management of long-running processes. The Windows firewall service is key to ensuring that users and applications are restricted in access a computer, monitoring or being alerted when this service isn't started or is disabled is, therefore, key to the security of your endpoints. The report below provides a list of all Windows devices that have been rescanned in the last 7 days and have their Windows firewall service not running or have the start mode not set to automatic. Both of these are indicators of a problem.

This report is part of a Pro Tips blog post covering multiple ways of keeping an eye on your Windows firewall.
