Hereby a script that I have running over all customer workstations and servers on a daily base.
Windows firewalls is important, no matter how annoying they can be sometimes to set up correctly for some applications, and it is almost always preferred to keep them active.
Knowing customers, fellow IT-people and third-party support however they do have a tendency to "temporarily" turn off the firewall and don't always remember or want to turn it on again.
To make sure that we have a full guarantee that Windows firewall is enabled everywhere, we run this script over all devices to give us that guarantee.
While its not really a script that is useful for running manually on 1 device, it has good use when being run through GPO, remote monitoring software, task scheduler or similar methods.
And another good day!
Lately I have been dabbling around with ESET Antivirus on workstations and servers while managing it through ESMC.
ESET Antivirus has a ESET Firewall function, however due to a lot of customers having very specific rules and exceptions within their Windows Firewalls i turned that off for workstations. The fact also is that a lot of times, Antivirus firewalls either overtake or conflict with the Windows Firewall (Previous experiences with Kaspersky's Firewall).
This luckily is very easy as it is simply turning 1 option off in the workstation policy.
