    Corporate UK is ignoring warnings from the security industry to configure and manage its firewalls and VPN services. The Fifth Annual NTA Monitor Security Audit found that risks present on corporate firewalls tested by NTA have risen by almost a fifth (17%) since 2000.
    Almost a third (31%) of companies tested by NTA Monitor in its Regular Monitor security testing service during 2002, are leaving their networks open to risk of attack by installing firewall VPNs in their default configuration or by failing to follow best practice security principles.
